Located in Market st the Oaks sits just off Collins, a quick few blocks from Bourke St, and a short stroll to SouthBank.
I pre-booked thru the net. Check-in was swift and simple (perhaps lacking a little warmth but hey, it isn't the Plaza). The room and location made up for that.
My studio room was on 18th floor with fab views out across SouthBank area and beyond. Super clean and spacious, with a couch/living area, which is great for resting feet between shopping trips. By the look of things, the room and facilities have been updated within last 6-12mths, including the nice flat screen TV in room. Not sure why hotels continue to install fabric covered headboards though, noted a few stains there already.
I found the room to be quiet and felt secure.
Other facilities: The choice of in-house movies on demand was up to date with what was showing at cinema. I made use of the indoor basement pool too, which was clean.
Used room service twice during my stay, the menu was standard fare but good quality, tasty and fast.
I'll definitely use the Oaks chain again if the rates stay reasonable.
NB: Met a fellow traveller at the conference I was attending who stayed at Oaks on Collins. sounded just as good in terms of facilities. will try there is Market is ever booked out when Im next in town.
