My husband and I stayed here for two nights over the weekend of his birthday, and definitely intend to be back at some point (usually we're loyal to the Langham...). Friendly and quick check-in, with some chocolate truffles and sparkling wine in our room as a birthday gift. Fantastic views looking out over Melbourne, as the hotel is on the top few floors of a building with offices underneath.
We had a club room and loved the club lounge, definitely one of the best we've been to. Huge views, a variety of seating areas, lovely and accommodating staff, and great food and drink. Breakfast was lovely: a small but delicious buffet with a variety of hot and cold dishes (and superb croissants) as well as an à la carte menu to order from - I recommend the eggs Benedict. Snacks and coffee throughout the day with delicious chocolates in the afternoon, light lunch, wine (including a few French choices which my husband loved) and canapés in the evening (among other things). We had intended to do more in Melbourne itself but enjoyed the club lounge so much we had more of a relax+food weekend, and loved it.
The paintwork in our room was a little rough in patches and the air-conditioner old, but the service and rest of the hotel more than made up for a couple of cosmetic/age issues (which I'm usually more critical of).
