My husband and I stayed here in an Executive Suite from 27/2/09 for 3 nights on our first trip to Melbourne. We arrived at the hotel at 8am after a red-eye flight from Perth and the room was ready for us and we were able to check in straight away, which was a godsend.
The room was spacious and very clean with a comfy king size bed. The TV was a wall mounted flat screen, big enough to see from the bed. The bathroom was very big with a shower/bath and the basic amenities, all in good order.
Our view was out into Australia on Collins shopping centre, which was weird to begin with but it really made the room quieter than would be normal if the windows faced outside.
We didn’t have room service or use any other amenities in the hotel so I can’t comment on them, they are re-furbishing the pool so that wasn’t available, but it wasn’t missed.
The only negative point was there was some building work being done across the shopping centre and there was a jackhammer going for about 1/2 an hour on the Monday morning at about 8am, but according to my hubby I slept through it!!
The room was cleaned immaculately each day as well. The location was one of the greater things about the hotel. It was within easy walking distance of everything we went to. Haigh's chocolate is right next door. We highly recommend a Creperie called AIX that is down the alleyway across the road.
