The first night was the Pullman in Albert Park (refer review) and then I moved across to the Como. The hotel was upgrading the exterior but the staff were very helpful letting me unload in the small space - I had my bike and gear to get to the room. Again the valet is a good option for only a small amount more and is a fixed charge rather than the fee in self parking which is per entry. Room was much nicer the bed more comfortable and the pillows soft. The halls have a sort of retro Art deco thing happening but the room décor was very nice even if erring on the functional side. Location is great in south Yarra close to restaurants etc and good shopping at the boutique sort of shops so much better for a couple or family than for business. Would love to spend more time here but needed to get back to the real world after my ride around the bay.
The breakfast in the café was very nice - I had the big breakfast which was just ideal for the road trip - eggs and bacon perfectly cooked with home made hash browns, sautéed mushrooms and grilled tomato.
