Stayed at the towers for 2 nights during Melbourne cup. We shared a 2 bedroom apartment between 4 adults comfortably. Price was exceptional ($335 for 2 nights total, shared between 4 people). Location is brilliant, 5 minute walk to flinders street station, 15 minute walk to crown casino, 10 minute walk to Chinatown. Great restaurants and shops surrounding the area. Rooms are fairly modern but nothing over the top extravagant. Has its own kitchen and laundry which is a plus. Would stay here again based on the cleanliness, location and fantastic rates!!

Stayed here back in 2005 when were were upgraded from studio to two bedroom executive. I knew they were pretty good, so we gave it another go this time.
Check in nice and smooth. Happy chappy on the desk and we were done in 5 minutes flat.
3 adults from a Wednesday to Thursday in two bedroom executive Room 1108 on 11th floor.
Hubby and I in master and big bro in the single room. Now big bro is a big bloke and I was a bit worried how he would go on a single bed. But he said he had the best nights sleep in ages. and this continued for the 4 nights we were there. Little bit of noise from apartment above, but nothing to complain about.
Yes the units are a bit tired, but ours was spotlessly clean. Lick of paint and some new carpet would do the trick.
Plenty of room to move about, we never felt crowded at all.
This place is a stunner for location. Tram stop at door, next to major bank, 3 choc shops with slobbering distance and so many incredible laneways, shops, eateries. aaaaaargh to be back there now.
Will be back again next year...and will be back to Darling Towers on Collins in a flash. For the price u pay and the location its in - no complaints from me.

Room Tip: The executives are really good value with that bit of extra space and no street noise. Its the location that makes this place.

I found the bedroom hot on the first night only.The day had been very warm so maybe should have used the air-con at night.

Had to stay here for work - if you are looking for a room that you want to come back and just fall asleep in then this is a great place.

If you are after a "holiday experience" where the place you stay is part of that then this is not the place for you.

Will I stay here again for work - probably for work - not on a holiday of my own.

Staff were friendly, rooms clean & tidy and location is what you are paying for. So do not stay here expecting this hotel to be your focal point, instead use it as a base from which to explore Melbourne.

Room Tip: I asked if I could have one away from Collins St to cut down on tram noise
