This was our first time to Melbourne and we are a family of 7. After researching on quite some hotels, we shortlisted Radisson. Radisson had a great location as it was right next to Queen Victoria Market and very near to the CBD. It was very convenient to roam around. We just had to hop on the city tram which gave us a free ride. The free shuttle bus stop is also right down the street. Radisson was a value for money property. Rooms were great and spacious as we were upgraded to the business category rooms.
The staff were very helpful in guiding us around. No complaints around that! The only negative thing was the breakfast. As we were vegetarians, we were limited to crossiants, baked beans, hashbrowns, cornflakes and fruits. For the 3 days we stayed, the same breakfast was presented to us and we kind of got tired of eating the same thing. But nevertheless, we tried to make our way with that. As far as Indian restaurants are concerned, there were 2 in the vicinity of the hotel which was good enough. Also, there were 2-3 more Indian restaurants which were 2 blocks down. You can easily locate them via GPS or by googling. Since we had free Wifi in the hotel, it wasnt a problem.
Overall, we had a good experience. The hotel's location was the best (5 stars to that!). Everything was at walkable distance. Dont forget to get on the free shuttle bus as it would take you to all the main attractions and on top of that, they actually provide commentary as well. Great hotel!
