3 nights for a footy w'end recently allowed me to discover a pearl just to the north of the heart of Melbourne. This hotel is beautifully situated at the northern end of Swanston St. within easy walking distance of the Victoria Markets and the Lygon St precinct. A new tram stop is right outside the door too...so it's location, location, LOCATION! A recent refurbishment produced a classy and comfortable island bar and restaurant area. The lobby is modern and spacious and is attended by friendly and capable people.
My well-appointed and very comfy room was quiet and just what I'd expect from this sort of establishment.
My mates and I'll be back there next year...if not before!
