Forget car hire, the Novotel is just a block from Flinders St Station. Tram stops and taxi ranks are conveniently located out the front on Collins St. A supermarket and bottleshop are within walking distance too. There's room in the mini-bar to store your own drinks.
The hotel is part of the Australia on Collins shopping centre and very close to the Bourke St Mall. In terms of facilities, the bar and restaurant are both very good, with great service. The pool and gym are small but adequate; the children thoroughly enjoyed the pool.
I have stayed as an individual in years past and now with my family and would certainly consider staying there again. At the moment we can book a standard room (2 queen beds) but will have to hire a bigger room as the children get older which will add to the expense - as in any hotel really.
There was also free internet in the lobby if you wanted to quickly access email or look up something.

Service is great and hotel staff is accommodating. The location is great since it's centrality allows you good foot access to many of the destinations you'd want to visit in the city. Internet is quite limited so be ready to line up with just a few stations available, it's supposed to be quite expensive in the city generally.
