Room rates here vary massively and I have stayed here many times when they are not at a premium. The suites start from just over $200 p/n which is really good value and most seem to have been refurbished recently. I haven't stayed in the standard rooms as the price difference when I have used this place has always been around $30-40 p/n. The bar here is good and attracts a number of people for pre theatre drinks which helps give it some atmosphere. The lunch (bar) menu is reasonable but the dinner menu seems overpriced. There are lots of fantastic places to eat in Melbourne so would suggest stepping outside the hotel for food and experiencing Melbourne. Some fantastic restaurants around the lane ways.
Hotel staff are helpful and really friendly. Nice Lobby with a fireplace and sofas for those colder months. I would recommend the higher floors and away from the bins as they seem to get emptied around 4am which can be a painful if you end up on the wrong side of the building. Breakfast is really good if you can get it included in the room rate otherwise again I'd step outside the hotel and try the local options given the price.
