A nice hotel located on a very busy yet important street if you want to use public transportation to get around which I would recommend. Leaving out the main hotel entrance, turn right until you reach St. Kilda road and go left about a block and you will see the stop. Most trams at this stop will take you to the CBD. The hotel or a convenience store can set you up with transit card for traveling.
The hotel doesn't have a shuttle service so if you don't rent a car, your best option is to hire a shuttle bus to give you a lift from the airport and back. Price was good for the service and the hotel can tell you the name.
The interior of the hotel is very nice. Rooms are also nice. The bathroom, in the room I stayed in, was a little cramped and with a door opening into the bathroom, made it hard to get around. Also, not a lot of room for storing clothes but I guess most people don't usually stay for 9 nights. The front desk has power adaptors if you need them for the outlets in the room. I like the beds to be a little harder but that is just a personal preference. Wifi is free but isn't very fast but its free so you cant really complain. They have a premium option for faster internet. They did a great job cleaning the room during my stay.
The breakfast buffet is very good. Never had many issues with food running out. Quick to replace something that did. Selection is on the better side of what I have seen. Breakfast came free with my booking so I couldn't say if the selection justified the cost for those that do pay. Also, they have free newspapers by the entrance to the restaurant so you can read while eating breakfast.
The staff at the hotel are excellent. They are very polite and are quick with any requests. I appreciate them booking my tour and show and being so quick with the shaving kit, they must carry them in their pockets. Always greeted with a good morning when I went down for breakfast.
The hotel has a sauna, hot tub, pool and gym on the 9th floor. It has an amazing view overlooking the city. A very nice sunset on a clear day.
Overall, a very solid hotel that is well maintained and is in a good location.
