The Grand Mercure is situated on Swanston Street, in one of the main shopping streets in Melbourne. In spite of its central location it was a very peaceful place to stay. The room was very spacious (2 double beds for a twin room), as was the bathroom. All very clean, furnished in a modern style and very comfortable. Breakfast buffet each morning had a good selection of cooked and continental options. I was less impressed with the breakfast I had on room service one morning, my toast hadn't been toasted and the pastries were tiny - didn't seem like great value for money.
The concierge was extremely helpful, we booked car hire through the hotel and tours. The pick up point for some of the coach tours is right across the road which again is very convenient.
Overall I was very impressed with the hotel and felt it gave great value for the price I paid.
