Stayed here on Saturday 15th June for the first time and were very surprised.
It was very busy which can always stretch any hotel but we can't say we had any real complaints. The car park is very tight so beware of that. The reserved signs on both levels are misleading as we were informed to ignore them after returning to reception when we couldn't find a spot!
The rooms are very nice. Beds comfortable. Room clean. The dressing room area is a great touch. Lovely view down St Kilda Rd and overlooking the Albert Ground from the 5th floor.
We came back to the hotel late (10pm) and were really happy to find the bar still open so did partake! Well done as many hotels close the bar way too early. The staff were great.
Had breakfast on the Sunday morning and it was the usual buffet but pleasant enough. One toaster makes it a bit slow and another wouldn't go astray. The restaurant itself is okay and there is a front area on St Kilda Rd that adds a nice perspective.
The location is terrific and the tram stop just down the road gives great access to the CBD.
Overall we really enjoyed this. Value for dollar cannot be beaten. We did the breakfast, parking and fuel voucher deal.
Well done Parkview. We will be back.
