Somehow, this hotel appears to be in the middle of construction. This may be due to the industrial / basic design - which you like or not, I was in the latter categorie - but take for example the breakfast room: it's like they put a few tables and chairs in a room, just as a temporary measure. Staff is overall reasonably friendly but some appeared very stressed (busiest week of the year with all sorts of events going on, admitted). No restaurant, just room service. Expensive, mediocre Internet (management: please, it's 2015!). Not exactly at the most attractive spot in Melbourne; lots of fast food joints around and the street is very busy. All in all this is a reasonable hotel, but with some drawbacks. Not exactly the class you would expect from Double Tree / Hilton.
