The accommodation was chosen as an afterthought, when my first choice was fully booked. The Art Deco styling revealed friendly and helpful front desk staff, a tidy spacious lobby and prompt lifts. I stayed for a week for a convention at the nearby Melbourne Exhibition and Convention centre, and the location of the hotel was very convenient. A ten minute walk from the Convention centre, 2 minutes across the road to the Skybus (to the Airport) and Southern Cross Station. Trams just next to the hotel. I was allocated a room on the 11th Floor, and it was exactly like the photos. Quiet, and I only heard the police sirens once. There is a functional TV, a handy kettle for a warm cup of tea (all gratis), and an iron and ironing board. The air conditioning was good. Pillows and bedding were comfortable (not too firm but not too soft either). The bathroom was lined with black and white marble tiles and everything worked. Showers had sufficient pressure, and there was precious little to complain about apart from the low ceiling in the bathroom (if you are a 6 footer). Two supermarkets, with Coles further up the road, but having a larger selection. A choice of food shops and a food court nearby (just ask the hotel staff). Breakfast was good with a selection of fruit, pastries, and hot food, but they could improve and provide a little variation on the eggs (scrambled every day of the week). A little away from the big sights of Melbourne, but it was convenient for conventions and for getting in and out of the airport. Only one thing, there is no free wifi and that was a bit of a downer. I overcame this by having a cup of coffee and surfing at the same time, at Gloria Jeans around the corner.
