Sofitel is a very good hotel and very conveniently located in the CBD in Melbourne. I styaed on the top floor in the hotel (probably 42nd floor, can't recollect exact floor number) and the view from this floor was magnificient. With the MCG on your left, SBS building and tower and Yarra river view in front of you and Victoria Market on your right, you cannot get a better view form any other place in Melbourne. The room has three sides windows. In the morning one can see the beautiful Sunrise from the window and also the hot air balloons going up on the left. One can go walking to the various parks and the MCG.
