After booking tickets to a football game at nearby Etihad stadium, I decided to book a room for myself and two of my children, so we could watch the game and have a bit of a treat afterwards. We arrived a couple of hours earlier than check in and the staff were happy to allow us to check in early, which was handy, since we didn't want to drag our bags to the footy! The public art at this hotel was interesting and a bit out there, but was a nice change to the sometimes generic art you find at hotels. Look out for the piece behind reception, you will never look at a pot scrubber the same way again!
The room was lovely, clean and with plenty of room for the three of us. Modern and with full length windows to give us a great view of the Yarra in all its choclatey glory. The gym was a bit average and they have no pool, which is also a disappointment. However, the walk to Etihand was easy and a part of Melbourne we don't often see, just drive past. Breakfast was included and was a typical buffet breakfast, with a great selection of well displayed foods. A small thing, but for those of us who fear walking accidently into hotel or restaurant kitchens, the arrangement of the buffet was confusing as it looked from one side to be part of the kitchen. Check out was speedy and they didn't give us grief about our little old car. You wouldn't stay here for long, but for a quick stop over, its not too shabby.
