“Stay for Formula 1”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012 via mobile

Just finished a 5 night stay over the Grand Prix weekend. Good hotel with fantastic staff. I received a hand written note from the General Manager on check in and a free bottle of wine on the 5th night. These little touches are really appreciated. The executive lounge is small and quite basic by Marriott standards, but once again the staff make it great - each day after the F1 we were greeted and chatted to by the team. I would definately stay here again.

Stayed March 2012

Recently stayed at this property for leisure stay, and was very very impressed with it. The decor in the rooms has been recently fully refurbed and they have a modern, but comfortable feel about them. Loved the Melbourne themed art on the walls too.
Only negative for me was that the rooms don't have bath tubs!... apparently none of them do. Seemed odd to me not to have some choice, but I've found in Australia showers seem to be preferred by most!
We used the indoor pool and spa which were great for a city centre property. The gym looked well equiped, though no one using it!
We didn't try the hotel restaurant, but I gather they have a very popular week-day lunch buffet - it was certainly busy at most times of the day that we walked past it.
The location of the property is good. There is a 24hr 7-11 just next door, a great Vietnamese restaurant a few doors up, a pub next door, and trams/trains very close by.
The most stand out aspect of our stay though was the attentive service we received in the lobby. Our every move was anticipated. Champagne handed to us while we checked in, our bags whisked off for storage before I think I'd even said what we wanted to do. All round, friendly, fabulous service - thank you!

I seriously wonder what are the walls between room made of. I can hear every single conversations in the next door rooms. I can almost ear the other person down the wire when my neighbour speaks on the phone! I was there for 2 nights and happened for both sets of neighbours.
I like the location though. It is more convenient that Intercontinental that I frequent. Staying here for this trip only because my other colleagues in the same business meetings decided on this. The experience made me think twice about returning.

Top Service & Top Staff. Am very pleased to have stayed here back in June 2007. I have never forgotten the hospitality given by them. I remember staying in room # 707 from memory. Amazing brand all round!

What a nice surprise to be greeted with smiles. We were offered welcome champagne & chocolates and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. The concierge was also happy and he made it look like it was a privilege to take our bags.
What a nice change from the last time I stayed there

Stayed here for two nights in February. The room we had was spacious and had 2 double beds, as requested. Beds were very comfortable, nice size flatscreen TV. Bathroom had been renovated, shower only, no bath. Plenty of hangers and hanging space. The restaurant on the ground floor made nice takeaway lattes.

It was an okay hotel, no complaints, except it was billed as 5 star, and was no more than 4 star.
