My husband had stayed at the RACV City Club (he's the member) previously, but this was the first time we've stayed there as a family (2 adults + one 8yo). The central city location is the best part about the Club, easy walking distance to the Burke St Mall, trams virtually at the front door, tourist shuttle bus around the corner, even walking distance to Southbank & the Casino. The room we had (5th floor) was spacious with 2 double beds (altho we found the mattresses too soft), so enough space for three of us and the bathroom was well equipped and plenty of amenities supplied (soaps, shampoo, hairdryer, tea/coffee making etc). However, the towels and sheets had obviously seen better days, in fact one set of sheets was threadbare with holes!! When we booked the info we received indicated "wi-fi in all rooms", this was not accurate. "Some rooms" have wi-fi, not all, and whilst there is access in the public areas, the connection is slow and not always reliable. The breakfast buffet was well stocked but the coffee was terrible, that is when you could actually get a waiter/waitress to serve it – really let down the overall experience. Evening drinks and dinner in the restaurant was good value, well serviced and child friendly. Big high-5 goes to the Concierge Desk staff who were always friendly, extremely helpful (with luggage etc) and ready to provide info on everything from the nearest post office to which tram/train/bus to catch to wherever!

The RACV Club remains a high standard accommodation and entertainment facility. The rooms are large and comfortable, clean and very usable. TV is now out of date and movies way too expensive. We stayed Friday and the room/breakfast/car park package was excellent value. We arrived early afternoon parked but did not check in. Went for a walk around town returning at about 4pm. Had a couple of drinks in the Carbine Bar, which is a really good relaxing area, checked in and went out for a function. On return had room service meals which were very good value and quality and had a good comfortable nights sleep. Rooms are ready for an update but totally acceptable. It is a club and some of the dress rules are up there but you know where you stand so this should not be an issue.

Well situated and versatile as members we have stayed here for years.
The rooms are good but becoming a little dated and gloomy, some colour would be good rather than corporate brown. Great shower but the towels are small thin and very worn looking. Included breakfast is good but the coffee continues to be un drinkable. Wi Fi is only available in public areas, this is un acceptable now days as the club is becoming quite expensive. The art collection is fantastic.

Attended a conference in RACV City Club Melbourne and stayed in their hotel accomodation. The rooms were large and beds comfortable. The bonus was the gym and pool. The gym was large by most 5 star hotel standards. Plenty of pulley machines and free weights. The 25 meter pool was crowded at peak training but avoid this and you are fine. Definitely the place to stay if you want to maintain your fitness or training whilst in the CBD.

Room Tip: Keep to the lower floors. Hotel has a 2 lift system and higher floors have a longer ride.

An odd atmosphere here, the staff are all very polite, but there's no genuine warmth or friendless. They have been coached to say and do all the right things, but its all very mechanical and cold. A little snooty actually. You feel like an inconvenience to them.
Nevertheless, the food is good, though way too expensive, especially when you already pay for membership. The service is quick and they have a good menu selection, which also caters for dietary needs.
The wine is stupidly priced, a city restaurant phenomenon which they choose to follow. Overall - disappointing value and atmosphere.

Room Tip: Better valueand service at near by restaurants
