This hotel is in a pleasant location on leafy St Kilda Road, south of inner Melbourne.
From the tram stop outside Flinders Street Station take a 3/3a, 6, 16, 64, or 67 tram heading south. Approximate 10-15 minute tram ride. Get off at stop No 25 (Commercial Rd/St Kilda Road. The Parkview hotel is located a short distance from the stop, looking southwards on the right hand side the hotel is easily spotted; a sports oval on one side and the Loreal Building behind.
Our King room looked over the adjacent sports oval and the distant inner city skyline. Large picture window, modern interior decoration, room light and very spacious. (A section of the window can be opened if fresh air is preferred although some road noise is then experienced.)
Careful thought has gone into the fittings and fixtures; the placement of little things which add to the look and room comfort.
The modern bathroom is fitted with a glass partition walk-in shower, huge rain shower head, contemporary shaped hand basin with fitted, open shelf underneath for bath amenities, hairdryer etc. Large fluffy towels and white waffle cotton robes.
The roomy, separate dressing area outside the bathroom cleverly incorporates a counter top backed with another large mirror, fitted robes, luggage storage, in room safe, minibar fridge and coffee and tea amenities counter storage....stylish, functional, uncluttered.
The minibar is locked and can be opened by phoning reception if its use is required. The downside is a lack of refrigeration for personal treats, like yoghurt, etc A stainless steel electric kettle (not cheap plastic thankfully) mugs as well as cups, and a good variety of teas are supplied.
In the bedroom/sitting area - good lighting, flat screen TV neatly fitted into a timber feature, a comfy lounge chair, oval table/desk with one chair. ( A second chair for the desk would be make in-room dining more comfortable). A pillow menu is also available.
We selected this hotel on this visit to Melbourne because of its location close to the Palais Theatre, St Kilda; this hotel's location being more convenient than an inner city hotel on this occasion, and were pleased with our choice.
