The Mercure in Therry Street makes a very good choice if you need to stay in Melbourne for work and want somewhere convenient, comfortable, and quiet. It's an easy walk to the University of Melbourne or RMIT, and a quick tram ride or walk to the city.
The rooms are well laid out and nicely presented. The small kitchen is handy and has everything you need to make breakfast or a light dinner. Close proximity to the wonderful Victoria Market means it's very easy to bring good ingredients back to the hotel.
The bed is comfortable, and the reading chair beside the window is a good place for answering emails. I take my own wi fi rather than rely on hotel services, and telephone calls are pricey so better to use skype or viber.
There's lots of free overnight parking in the streets back towards Melbourne Uni. They are metered until 6.30pm and then free until 7.30 in the morning. Parking inspectors are very diligent, so don't sleep in or it will add considerably to the cost of your stay.
This area is rich in small coffee shops, such as Stovetop in Leicester Street, and these are nice options for breakfast.
