I travel to Melbourne a lot for work and have constantly favoured a particular boutique hotel for many reasons, at the same time as missing some of the features one enjoys at a larger hotel. I've finally found an alternative that combines the charm of a local hotel with 24 hour room service, movies on demand and the most comfortable beds and dark rooms one could want. The downstairs bar/restaurant is really nice and not intimidating for a female travelling on her own, the alternative patisserie fine but not my sort of thing. Both had great coffee which is important to me. The location is brilliant - not stuck in the gridlock of the city but easy enough to get to, close to parks and to where I usually do my business. My only complaint is the same as I have in my previous favourite - no little bottles of spirits in the rooms. Maybe spirits aren't trendy these days but I still love a G&T and get disappointed when I can't make one (and don't want to call in room service). A very small thing of course. Overall though there's a good reason this hotel is doing so well. As a final point, I have stayed at the other two in the Art Series and I think this is the best of the three.
