Our family stayed at Radisson Melbourne recently and we had a very pleasant stay. We have 2 kids: 1 year and 3 yrs going on 4. The hotel room was spacious, and with another bed for our child. What i really loved was the room was very clean, and the bathrooms didnt have a bathtub, which we find a bit unsafe for our kids, we preferred the shower. What we didint like about hotels in Sydney was lack of hanging area for coats or pants. Here at Radisson, there was enough closet space to hang all our clothes,which is really useful if you have 4 coats and more hats/ pants/ sweaters / kids hats/mittens to re-use . which need hanging room.
My 3 year old son enjoyed the food at breakfast very much, and ate till he was very full. (probably ate more than me;) He loved the mushrooms (normally he doesnt eat them) They had the freshly made waffle counter, / omellett counter where the friendly lady chef prepared the food. The price was very reasonable for the value we had. We had a nice view of the Flagstaff park downstairs from our room too, so that was good.
Staff were very friendly too, and not too obstrusive when clearing plates off the breakfast table. We were pleasantly surprised to see the hotel director at the breakast area too, he was very friendly too. The 2 lady staff serving coffee and clearing the tables were very nice and friendly.
Going around Melbourne City from here was easy, as the free tram line 35 is right outside. Also, the park opposite is good for a stroll. We took the free Melbourne Visitor bus from nearby to go around the city, the bus driver will talk you through the sites, and plus it has a recorded commentary as you pass each site.
What could possibly be improved is a small play area for kids near the breakfast area. Which parent would like to have some reprieve from the kids during breakfast. However, looks like this is more of a business hotel/ corporate hotel, so may not have that many kids. If you had a car, do take note there is no car park within the hotel. So need to find parking nearby. We arrived on a Sunday, so we could park on the main road outside the hotel with ease.
