Have just spent the weekend at the Olsen with three friends. Management arranged two interconnecting rooms. One room was big enough for a 'girls night in' with expansive, comfortable couches and ottoman for lounging around on to the wee hours, large tv, dining table, bathroom with large bath and inbuilt shower, kitchenette and separate bedroom with an amazingly comfortable queen bed. The other, a suite with the same stylish kitchenette and separate bathroom but a king bed and a couple of arm chairs and tv within the same space. The overall service was fantastic. The location, being its proximity to South Yarra's Chapel St was gold - a stone's throw from cinemas, shopping and eateries of various kinds galore, supermarket and very good coffee. Some celebrity spotting in the hotel's lift, restaurant and lobby was the icing on the cake for an exciting getaway for four mums on the loose! Am looking forward to my next visit with hubby, family or heck, a different group of friends and experiencing the Olsen's day spa and Spoonbill restaurant.
