Stayed there for 9 nights in June with the wife and little one in a Executive King Room. I Requested a room away from the lifts and as high as possible to try to eliminate some of the city noise. Also requested a microwave in the room for the little one. Nothing was too much trouble when booking.
Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and the check-in process was seamless.
Location: Fantastic location, close to Bourke St Mall and the free city tram stop is only a block away. Great location if you like Asian food aswell :-)
View: Awesome view overlooking Parliament house and out to the Dandenong Ranges.
Room: Quite large and well fitted out with modern enough TV and Furniture, although in need of an upgrade in the not too distant future.
Bed: Very Comfortable. Would buy one if I knew where to purchase them from.
Cleanliness: Needs work. Mould in the bathroom and Dust everywhere. Sheets were also quite dirty aswell.
Bathroom: Small and cramped and like mentioned on the dirty side. Also the gap between the toilet, wall and shower was very small. Felt like I was on a portaloo at times.
Housekeeping: Efficient enough and the room was always made up upon room (even after short trips). Too noisy though during the night. Our room was located next to a store room and they were clunking around at all hours of the night oblivious to the their trying to sleep.
Parking: Cheap enough at $20 odd a night. The friendly staff down the carpark made getting the car out a breeze.
Facilities: Pool and Spa were undergoing refurbishment so can't comment. Maybe next time!!
Staff: Most were very friendly and helpful, however on the one occasion the front desk was unattended and a group of employees were standing around near their staff entry talking. A male staff member looked over, seen me standing their and totally ignored me. It took another staff member a good 3-4 minutes to attend to me. First rule of customer service: Don;t ignore the Customer!
Overall: Pleasant stay, great location and cheap enough rate per night means I would possibly consider another stay if the right deal was on offer at the time of travel.
