Fantastic hotel that is close to shops, restaurants and bars in Melbourne's CBD. All staff were friendly and always willing to help including concierge, receptionist's, housekeeping and restaurant staff. Buffet breakfast was amazing and their happy hour in the hotel bar was a great way to start the night.

Our stay was very enjoyable and the family rooms are great. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious. We all enjoyed breakfast the next day in the restaurant. Most of the staff were very helpful. We hope to return to the hotel soon.

We got a very good price on a weekend with breakfast and it was worth every dollar. The room was scrupulously clean. Despite the "short walk" from our room to the lifts, and one rude reception member, we can't fault it. Too many times you get hard beds and pillows and blinds that don't block out light. Not here! Soft as soft beds and pillows and very thoughtful window furnishings. We looked onto the atrium which was not a problem. Room service was prompt and the breakfast buffet, while standard, was fine. Location was great as well. Very short walk to the regent theatre and a nice walk down elizabeth street to flinders street station and over to southbank. Little bit of a walk to bourke st mall and melbourne central, but nothing we couldn't handle. Would stay again for sure!

Excellent hotel overall. attentive staff and service. Large room (executive suite) which we could afford due to the 50%off promotion! However our "king" bed turned out to be two singles pushed together with a mattress protector between them! Not very comfortable, and not what I would expect from booking a King bed.
TV reception is very poor, and quality of picture worse than my old boxy Sony trinitron. Would've been better to have a smaller TV with better picture/sound quality.
Overall though I would stay here again, as long as the bed is checked first. Can't fault the location. Close to great food and shopping. Beware the hotel restaurant which is ridiculously overpriced.
