My sister and I travelled down to Melbourne for my birthday and stayed at the Sebel one recent Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My sister and I flew from Newcastle to Melbourne at 6am with only 2 hours sleep so when we arrived at the hotel at 8am we were absolutely exhausted and barely awake but the front of house (particularly concierge) staff were such a delight we were thoroughly impressed.
They greeted us immediately, were more than happy to store our bags for the day while we shopped and even got us to fill in the check-in paperwork forms so that when we got back we could have an express check-in. As a fellow concierge at another hotel I wish to commend the attitude of the concierge at the Sebel Albert Park, they truly made the hotel a 5-star experience.
I was also impressed by the ipad offered to the guests for flight check-in purposes at the concierge desk.
The room itself was spacious... and I do mean ENORMOUS! There was the lounge/bedroom, the workstation,wardrobe room, the shower/kids bathroom area and then another room for a spa bath. This hotel is not in the heart of the city but the location is convenient for other activities including shopping along Chapel Street and for exercising in the amazing Albert Park.More
