So glad we booked this hotel on line the night before arrival. i requested a room overlooking the city. we arrived at 10am and were greeted by Mishty and were advised our room was ready...so up we went to room 1314. One of the best rooms as it overlooks Docklands, city buildings and opposite Flagstaff Gardens. No buildings obstructing our view. The room was exceptionally clean, all the kitchen appliances and dinnerware were brand new. The bed was firm and very comfortable, the pillows were unlike i have ever laid my head on: supportive, firm, large and so luxurious!! the bathroom was large, the rainfall shower head was a treat! We had afternoon drinks and nibbles on the balcony watching the sunset. The decor was very modern and the room was bright and airy. All the front desk staff, especially Mishty and Brooke gave us great recommendations on where to eat and places to see. We would stop and chat each morning before heading out and of course fill them in with our daily adventures on our return. we felt welcome, comfortable and safe. The free city circle tram is just at the door of the hotel, the QV markets are one block away and the city is within a 10 minute stroll. The surrounding area is quiet and safe. We did not have any problems with outside noise as other reviewers. Make sure you go to Operator 25 cafe just around the corner of the hotel and have the sago porridge...divine! And dont miss out going to The Mint, across the road for dinner. I would not stay anywhere else, loved it and will recommend it to all my friends. The positive experience made for the best week I have had away for quite some time. Looking forward to another break in Melbourne soon
