We stayed here twice during May 2014 and we were very impressed on both occasions.
Our bookings were made via Qantas online and our rooms were about $125 per night.
Our first stay was for one night and our room was on the 15th floor with a city view. Our second stay was for three nights, also on the 15th floor but with a Dockland's view. The rooms were identical as were our stays so I'll combine my review as one.
The front of house and housekeeping staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was fresh and clean, neat and compact comprising a queen bed, sofa, desk and chair, mini-fridge with tea and coffee facilities, and on-suite.
The on-suite was very clean and neatly appointed. The bathroom was one of the main reasons we were so impressed as it had a fantastic large shower and, considering the price we paid for the room, was an outstanding feature.
The air conditioning was another stand-out feature. With our own control panel, we could set the temperature and airflow. It made for a wonderful night's sleep (every night's sleep!). Extra pillows and blanket are available in the wardrobe.
Coles and cafes are close-by so we didn't make use of the breakfast room. The free city circle tram is also close by so it was an easy trip to Elizabeth Street and Melbourne Central. Also the Spencer Outlet Centre is across the road for some handy shopping. Several other tram routes are close by so we could tram to Exhibition Street and the theatre and Chinatown.
We parked a car for one night which at $15.00 per night is more than reasonable. Also we were lucky that our hire car could be returned in Spencer Street.
The pool appeared to be a winner with the young families and young people staying.
The hotel is very quiet but at the same time close to pubs and bars. Also ridiculously close to Etihad Stadium so ideal for the football.
We'll definitely be returning. It was everything we needed and great value.
