I have stayed here a dozen times and its funny as every time I get a local visiting me they are surprised by how easy it is get there, and how great it is. By car you can drive in to the South Wharf shopping complex and park there, which is also useful if you rent a car. You can walk along the yarra from the Crown complex within 10 mins, and you cross some newly opened cafes and restaurants. The whole walking route is beautiful.
The hotel is extremely modern and the decor is great. The rooms either get the view of the sea or the city (city being the better view). I would put the view of the City from here at par with the one from Crown or Langham.
The executive lounge is amazingly well though out. Big space and constantly served. The hotel does not have a pool however it was not missed. The gym is adequate.
The hotel is located on top of the convention centre so you do occasionally get large groups however the staff seem to be on top of it. I also stayed here with the family and we booked the 2 bedroom apartment on top, which was just perfect.
The spanish restaurant Nuevo has a great wine collection and is a good spot to have any business dinners.
