We booked a 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom apartment with Harbour Views for the Melbourne Cup.
I have previously booked my hubby and his mates a similar apartment and i am told that their one was far superior to one we ended up with.
Still! It had nice decor', it was very clean and the beds were lovely and comfortable. Shops and Restaurants were everywhere.
My only gripe.. and i guess it wouldn't have bothered me except the apartments were so expensive. The airconditiong, once turned on sounded like a truck reving on the balcony. A friend was sitting on the balcony enjoying the view when i turned it on.. nearly sent him over the edge. :) The volume inside was also quite loud.
The room sizes were a little on the small side. The 3rd Bedroom - luckily, only had one person in it. Would have been squishy with two.
The security lift is a great idea. But with only two keys between five people there were a few times i had to duck downstairs in my pj's just to let others in.
Overall the staff were very nice. We did get a phone call (very pleasant) to make sure we were leaving right on 10am though. Another couple in the lift checking out of an Accor apartment said that reception told them they would be charged late fees if they didn't hussle and vacate quickly.
I would stay here again. But next time i'll make sure to check which building and apartment i'll be getting first.
