I was pleased to find that our room is big with two twin beds and each seems like a super single (can probably fit in two people nicely). The beds are very comfy and well equipped with many pillows. The only con is that after cleaning, the cleaning lady usually misplace my pillows and puts them all on my friend's bed instead. Guess it was just a slip of her mind. :)
Service at the front desk was great throughout the stay. The only time that we experienced service that was slightly below standard was during check-in when the staff was probably overwhelmed.
Location is pretty good, surrounded with a number of eateries. Parking in the hotel can be abit troublesome as not all roads are through-roads to the back of the hotel where valet parking is.
Overall, I would recommend this hotel to friends who are going Melbourne.
