We stayed in one of the new rooms (Exec Double) at the Hotel Enterprize and were very impressed. The decor is very trendy and the bathroom is well appointed. The rate for the room was excellent value. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, just down the road (2 minutes walk) from the Southern Cross Station, DFO and plenty of access to trams.
Perhaps the only hitch would be if it were rainy heavily, the access to the new rooms could be tricky as they have been built onto the back of the existing hotel and there is no direct elevator access. You take the elevator to the top floor of the old building and then take outdoor stairs to the new rooms. They are covered over but if it was heavy rain you might have a little problem.
I would definately recommend these rooms.
