i stayed for 3 nights in studio room on 19/F, very spacious, super clean. Though it has a fully equipped kitchen, i never cooked thruout the stay. The view of the room overlook the southbank and the Crown Casino. It took less than 5 mins to walk to the southgate and the Crown Casion where there are over 30 fine dining restaurants to choose from.
The hotel staff are quite helpful, but since it is a apartment type of hotel, dont expect there is bell boy to move the luggage for you (but they have a trolley to borrow) and no morning calls service.
There is no parking facilities in the hotel. They have some preferential rate of AUD 20 @ day with the Wilson Parking round the corner. Need to bring the parking card to the hotel reception to chop in order to enjoy the preferential rate. There are many roadside parking in front of the hotel, which is free of charge after 7:30pm. Since i tour around outside the CBD, like mornington peninsular, yarra valley, philips island, etc. thruout my stay, i came back to the hotel after 7:30pm and go out early in the morning, I just parked the car in the roadside parking spaces free of charge every night.
Transport to Melbourne airport, i took the skybus for AUD26 for return trips. The shuttle from hotel to skybus station in Southern Cross Station stops at 6:30pm. This is really stupid. I took a late night flight, so I walked to the Skybus station in Southern Cross Station, which took me around 12 mins, or alternatively the hotel staff suggested to take a taxi, which would costs around AUD15.
