The hotel is conveniently located within a short walk to the Melbourne Aquarium and numerous restaurants located along the Yarra river. The free tourist bus and the free circle city tram (route 35) have a pickup point approximately 700 meters from the hotel along the Yarra river. One would expect that the pickup location would be nearer the convention center. As for the hotel I was offered an upgrade for $75 which would provide the views other raters have mentioned but I declined since my purpose was not to spend my time in the hotel looking out the window. The beds are very comfortable and the staff accomodating. Check in and out were accomplished effortlessly but I would try and avoid the morning rush to get out of the hotel unless you don't mind standing in line and then waiting for a taxi. Overall the facility is clean and well maintained
