I booked a 1 bedroom apartment for 5 nights as I was attending a conference at the Melbourne convention centre. It was a 6-7 minute walk...just over the river and along a bit. Also close to spencer street /southern cross station, trams, casino and only a 10-15 minute walk to the heart of the shopping district.
Main attraction other than location was price. I looked on wotif.com, but ended up using the hotel website 30 day advance booking offer. Price per night between $150-170 -more expensive on the weekend.
The appt was great. it was just near the lifts, but this wasn't a problem -there was no noise.
Great views across roves to the west and beyond. small balcony, but a bit noisy during the day if the sliding doors were left open.
Nicely furnished, well equipped kitchen, practical layout inc washing machine /dryer in the bathroom. Only negative -shower over bath. Appt cleaned daily and well.
Reception staff pleasant, often busy /seemingly understaffed at peak periods -2pm check in and 10-11am checkout. Checkout time officially 10am on the website, but I had no problems when requested 11am checkout.
Fire in lobby with newspapers and (largely old and classical) novels you can borrow for duration of stay. basic gym with treadmills, bikes, cross trainer and a few machines. Narrow lap pool (?20 meters) with good views if pool walking, usually empty.
all in all a good choice -more space and less expensive than most hotel rooms.
