We stayed for three nights over the Chinese New Year period. The location is very central to shopping areas, transport and lots of great restaurants.
This is a hotel/apartment style of accommodation, so there are kitchen facilities in the room. We were on the 24th floor in a two bedroom executive apartment, which had two well appointed bathrooms. For our party of four adults, there was plenty of space and no fighting for the bathroom! There were plenty of towels and the bed linens were very nice. The hotel was very clean and our apartment was well maintained. The view from the 24th floor was fabulous and we enjoyed watching fireworks on the final night of our stay. The only issue that we had related to our King Bed, which comprised of two single divans bound together - the mattresses on either side were soft, with a very firm strip down the centre of the bed. I would suggest to the management that a decent quality pillow top overlay needs to be added to this bedding configuration.
Overall, the staff were all helpful, knowledgable, friendly and courteous, and it was nice to see them working as a team in the lobby. When we checked in, Sangoresh (?spelling) was very efficient, and provided very clear instructions about how to access the free WiFi. The WiFi was generally of a decent bandwidth, but was occasionally patchy on the Saturday night (not that surfing the Internet was a priority, we had places to be!)
We also had dinner at the Heirloom restaurant on the ground floor. The Miso Braised Beef on Truffle Mashed Potato was delicious.
Thank you to the team at Citadines on Bourke. We will return on our next visit to Melbourne.
