I chose this hotel since it was next to the Exhibition Centre where I was attending an Expo. I can't really fault this hotel but it was lacking that WOW factor.
All the staff were excellent. The room was on the small side but had all the functionality one would want. The bathroom was excellent. I had access to the executive lounge which had a great balcony overlooking the Yarra. The executive lounge was adequate, but I was disappointed you couldn't get a proper coffee there in the morning.
The bar was good but seemed to lack people and atmosphere - maybe it was just the night I was there.
Overall this is an excellent hotel and the friendly staff made my stay very enjoyable.
