My husband and I recently stayed here for three nights primarily for the Australian Open. The location is brilliant as we were able to walk everywhere that we needed to go, including the Open and Lygon Street.
We opted for the upgrade to the privilege room, which came with wifi, coffee machine, magazines, ONE bottle of water a day, newspaper, bathrobes and a balcony. Now, to book the upgrade or to not book the upgrade! mmmmm.. don't book it if you are wanting it simply for the wifi, as for the majority of our stay, our wifi didn't work! We asked the management many times and they were very good at trying to make it work but it basically didn't. My husbands phone picked it up occasionally but it would drop out all the time. We really didn't used the balcony as it was so dam hot!
The bathroom was very small but the shower very roomy. The staff were very friendly and extra things were delivered as we asked for them, such as pillows and extra towels. The coffee machine was nice to have as were the T2 teas. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I am very fussy with my beds as have a bad back.
One disappointment was the set out of the large desk which basically accommodated the power points. This was incredibly disorganised, with all the power points up one end and none down the other, which meant everything was cluttered up one end - such as coffee machine, kettle, laptop, phone charges etc.. they should really just install another double power point down the other end.
We didn't eat in at all, as there are so many lovely places to eat and I would really recommend Café Excello for breakfast just up the road. Family owned and fresh wonderful food.
Upon check out we had a taxi booked for us to take us to the airport. I was really impressed with the front staff when they offered us a private chauffeur car to the airport for a flat rate of $60. What a fantastic thing to do!! thanks so much - we had a bottle of water, lovely driver and a gorgeous comfortable car to travel in ! So worth it and a great option as a taxi would have been close to this anyway.
Would I stay here again - yes. Would I book the upgrade - probably not.
