We stayed four nights over the Melbourne GP race in March 2012. The location of the hotel is very good - next the main train station - but it is in CBD and everything closes at 6. Its a 20 minutes walk to the Lanes and Flinders Street where the food is. The room was large and comfortable, and the service excellent - one of the best - just everybody working at the hotel was great. And so was breakfast. However, the room we had (and most rooms, I believe) had no view whatsoever - it overlooked a 1-meter alley, so it was dark. And wireless internet, although available, was excruciating slow, not recommended if you wish to view videos (as we did, to see the race highlights on YouTube). But we will nevertheless come back to this hotel next year, if not for the good standard and service
