My family and I just returned from four days in Melbourne staying at the Melbourne Parkview Hotel (formerly known as Parkview Hotel on St.Kilda Road).

When we arrived we were greeted by Amelia who was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay along with the rest of the staff.
Each morning we visited the restaurant for breakfast we were greeted with a true professional in Glen who was always happy and bubbly along with Julia the Restaurant Manager they are all great assets to the hotel.

The newly refurbished rooms are fantastic very modern, great shower area & very spacious bathroom, large screen LCD TV that could be rotated to face your bed and most of all comfortable with great views of the Melbourne skyline overlooking Albert Park Cricket ground.
Initially when i layed down on the King bed I found them extremely soft compared to our bed at home but let me tell you that was the best 4 nights of sleep I have had for many months..
Great beds and even thinking of asking the hotel where we can buy them from as I wish i could sleep like that all the time..

Excellent location a short stroll (3 mins) to the Tram that can take you into the City or you can even take a slow stroll down leafy St.Kilda road as it is a very easy walk into the City.

All in all a wonderful property, excellent staff, great food and good location .

We look forward to heading back to the Melbourne Parkview Hotel again in 2013.

Room Tip: We stayed in a King Room on Level 9 which was on the corner of the building and it was excellent.

Staff were friendly.
Tight car parking.
Helpful staff when my friend hurt her foot. They brought up ice and offered bandages.
Free Internet and printing for 15min.
Gym and spa on top level.
Rang the night before to see if we wanted to participate in New Years Eve dinner.

Booked here for NYE last minute. Excellent views, service and modern clean hotel. Def be back! Great view of fire works. Nice big room with great bed and fit out. Recent refurb with modern bathroom. Great minibar at reasonable charges. I found the staff a bit dull however hey did their job and after all it was NYE! $12 car park, easy 5 minute tram ride to the Center of CBD! I won't be spending big $$$ on five star city hotels anymore. Restaurant food, drinks and coffee were excellent also and very reasonably priced. Thanks Parkview!

Room Tip: 9th floor city facing rooms are excellent. 180 view of Melbourne

I stay here at least once a month. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. It's ideal for business travellers or those wanting to to go to the tennis, footy, cricket, F1. The staff are friendly and efficient

This hotel was actually ok. But not being local we didn't realize it wasn't in the CBD - you can't walk it. Although there is a tram close by. Rooms were fine, food ok too. Apart from the location the other thing that really put me off was the staff on their mobile phones - one tall guy in particular - seems to be the manager of reception as he was in a suit each time we saw him. SMS on your own time ... totally unprofessional!

My boyfriend & I stayed here for our anniversary & got the movie marathon package. When I booked I requested city views and I was not disappointed. We had lovely view from our room on the seventh floor and got to choose from at least 20 new release movies plus other older ones. Breakfast was ok maybe a bit crowded. Pool & spa was nice on the roof, wouldn't want too many people there though as area is small.
The only thing we didn't like was the car park. Even for a sedan it was very poky & tight. Wouldn't want to park a big car in there. Also one lift was not working at the time so everyone was relying on the one lift. There didn't appear to be an option of using stairs which would have saved a lot of time queuing waiting for the lift especially around busy times. There needed to be an alternative.
Having said all that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, loved the package we got & have recommended it to friends. If you want to relax in a nice comfy bed, great city views & watch a few movies this is a great way to do it. Looking forward to going back there again soon.
