I normally stay at the Prince Hotel when I am in Melbourne, but unfortunately they were full and I therefore had to look for an alternative. The Blackman turned out to be an excellent alternative and will actually now become my first choice for Melbourne! The room was spacious and even had a mini kitchen area included. The mini bar / snacks were very thoughtful and not outrageously priced. Bathrooms are tiny (would have liked a little bigger and a bath), but it was functional, great shower and clean. The amenities although great smelling are really painful to get out of the containers - would definitely look at the packaging. I ate at both restaurants and both were really good - the cafe for breakfast also very good. I had room service really late one night and that was average. If there was an improvement I would suggest is that at all times when going to my room there was always room service trays outside many room doors, some being there for at least 18 hours and newspapers had been delivered in the meantime - I really found this to be a bit slack and do think staff should make an effort to check the floors and clear things away. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and its in a great location with helpful front desk staff and pleasant restaurant staff as well.
