Could see the construction others are complaining about but it didn't cause us any bother - must have been on the other side of the hotel. The hotel itself is pretty standard - reasonably sized room, shower over bath. No complaints about cleanliness. Wifi only free in the lobby which is a bit annoying - meant we didn't really use it. The absolute best thing about this hotel is the location. We walked everywhere, even up to the markets (a bit of a trek, not too bad). Easy walk to Bourke St for shopping, Chinatown for eating, right next to Degraves St for fantastic breakfasts. Southbank also just across the river, easy walk. Across the rd from Flinders St Station if you need transport. We were there to watch Liverpool and walking to MCG was easy.
We took the skybus from the airport to Southern Cross Station and then walked to the hotel rather than taking the shuttle - probably 20 min fast walk. Shuttle is free though if you have lots of bags etc.
