Although I live in Melbourne, I wanted a city hotel for a little comfort and convenience on new years eve. Any complaints I have are minor and overall I could not have been happier with the Causeway 353. The location is amazing...especially for those who are planning to shop. When I arrived I was greeted by friendly and efficient staff, who happily met my request for a late checkout, which I was not really expecting on New Years when everybody else probably wanted the same thing. The room was basic but exceptionally clean and functional. It was quite open and bright, but the curtains were very efficient at keeping the room dark well into the morning for my sleep-in. I had a spa suite, which was very comfortable, although I was expecting the spa to be bigger based on other reviews. It didn't really matter as I was alone on this trip, but it would be very cosy for a couple unless they were both tiny. It was very deep and comfortable nonetheless. I found the mattress very comfortable, even though I generally prefer a softer mattress. The only issues I had, were getting the room key to work in the elevator to my floor, there seems to be a trick to it which I didn't get...but repeated pushing of the button and entering of the card eventually got me there each time.
The only other issue was the fire alarm/evacuation at about 6.30 pm, but this was probably caused by another guest rather than being the hotels fault. Overall I was very happy with the hotel and would not hesitate to stay again or recommend it to others.
