I won a competition to go to the Caulfield Cup. We stayed for only two nights but it was a very nice hotel. When we arrived, we were told that there was no reservation under my name. Just what we needed on our first trip to melbourne. I had no record to show her that it had been booked as it was done through the doomben turf club in brisbane. The receptionist called the woman who had told me it was booked and sorted it out and we were checked in straight away. And this was at 11am, so that's excellent service. Our room was a twin room with two double beds and was immaculately clean. We were very impressed with the dressing room which led into the bathroom.
The concierge was extremely helpful on our first visit to Melbourne and gave us directions to wherever we wanted to go.
The hotel is a bit out of the city - it's on St Kilda Rd, but is only a 5 minute tram ride to the city.
Overall, we were very impressed and the location didn't phase us really at all.
