Reviewed April 20, 2013

Centrally sited and handy for walking around the arcades and other sites of Central Melbourne. Rooms very much as expected from Holiday Inn brand, as is service and restaurant. Not much of a view from the room we had, but the bed was comfortable, room was clean and bathroom a little tired but all in working order so nothing to complain about. Staff were very polite and pleasant.

Came to Melbourne for an exhibition. Was not too happy after I checked out of the hotel after my one night stay. The reason I booked it was because its walking distance from the southern cross station, where the skybus shuttle ends and is walking distance from the exhibition centre and the major attractions in the city. Room was indeed clean as one would expect but there was a continuous noise through out the night, probably had a drainage pipe above the room or something. I stayed in room no 225. Rest the staff was very courteous.

As a business hotel the larger deluxe rooms have a better working desk, standard rooms do not really provide for a working area. Just a short walk over the bridge makes access to Southbank easy without actually staying at Southbank. The hotel rooms are getting a little old however it is still comfortable. The WiFi is not great so it is better to attach the LAN cable for Internet access, it is a charged service so better get the best speed through the cable.

Check in staff were friendly and informative

Room Tip: Go for a deluxe room if you are intending to work from the room

Clean, neat, tidy with excellent location. The Holiday Inn's best features were cost and proximity to Southern Cross station. There was no need to catch the SkyBus hotel transfer and this hotel was within walking distance of the station.

The property appears renovated internally. The rooms are neat, tidy albeit small.
Would only return if the prices were equally as cheap as on my last visit (under $200/night)

I have been staying here regularly for work.
The rooms are very comfortable and have a desk - great when travelling for work.
It is close to most things in the city and has a taxi rank outside.
The staff have always been welcoming and helpful.
Lots of coffee shops and eating places

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Melbourne on Monday after the Hawks game. The room was nice & clean, the staff friendly, especially Howie in the resturant, Scott the 'egg chef' served up a delight. I will be staying here again next time I am in Melborne.

Stayed here for 1 night using reward night. I came in @ 10 AM and was immediately given the room and upgraded to a Suite Room. The whole stay was excellent. The staff was nice and friendly. The location is near the Sky Bus station. The best way to go to the airport.
The only complaint that internet is not free. I just dont get this.
