I booked this hotel for my son after reading the reviews from other patrons. He was travelling overseas by himself for the first time. He needed a place where it is really convenient and easy to get transport to the Flemington Showgrounds.
This Hotel met all the criteria I was looking for. It was in a safe location in the city area and is a a couple of minutes walk to the nearest train station or Tram and the price was reasonable compared to other 3 star hotels in the area. It is in the Collins Street area son it has very convenient access to all the cafes and fast food places as well as shopping.
I booked this hotel through our American Express account with our AMEX points but also emailed the hotel directly to give specific request for a higher floor room, non smoking room and for early check in since his flight was arriving just after noon.
The customer service person from the Causeway hotel who responded to my email assured me that my requests will be registered with the reception but on arrival, my son reported that the receptionist was rather grumpy and had not met any of our request except for the non smoking room and they kep his luggage in storage while his room was being prepared . He was not able to access his room until 3pm and he was allocated a room on the second floor instead of a higher floor as requested.
Despite all that however, his stay was pleasant. The room was nice and modern and well kept and he really appreciate the location.
