A great place to stay not only because of the facility but also the staff are wonderful. The location is perfect if looking to shop at the Queen Victoria Markets. So close you can fill your bags, walk back to the hotel to drop off and return for more shopping. Easy location to catch buses, trams and trains. A lovely walk into the CBD and not far from the Yarra. The restaurant is great with a breakfast to die for especially the waffles with maple syrup!

My wife and I found the staff friendly, willing to give information and provided an enjoyable stay. (excellent customer service)
We thought the hotel had an excellent location - being handy to the Victoria markets, Harbourtown, public transport, and a short walk to the CBD and shops.
The top floor spa with a view over the park and part of the city was wonderful and relaxing.

The Raddison Flagstaff is in the CBD near the Victoria Markets. It's a pleasant walk to Bourke street. Staff were friendly and even had our room ready at 10:30am!!! Excellent value. The rooms were average sized. The bathroom was comfortable, though water pressure was a bit off. Free wifi was an added bonus.

Two things stood out as being particularly awesome:
1. Happy hour on Friday nights. Cheap drinks for 2 hours in the bar. With free appetizers! Brilliant.
2. The bed. Like sleeping on a cloud. I'm not usually a fan of soft beds, but this bed was incredible.

All in all, it made our wonderful few days in Melbourne a real treat.

The location of the hotel is convenient for many tourist attractions, most of which only a short walk away. The best part of the stay was the staff and how helpful they were in booking restaurants and tours for us. The rooms were reasonably well appointed with a flat screen TV and the usual business hotel amenities. Free internet was also a huge plus although it can be quite slow at times.

The parts that were not so ideal was the bed. It was soft, lumpy and sagged. I felt like i was being sucked into a sinkhole every night and woke with backache. Perhaps it's time for the hotel to change the beds that are worn.

The restaurant had excellent service. I ordered steak which was reasonably tasty but came out a bit too overcooked (I ordered Medium Rare but got a medium). My girlfriend enjoyed her snapper so I would say its good for days that you just don't want to go out.

Good job Radisson.

I always stay at this property when I travel for business and the staff are very friendly and I sometimes get upgraded to the business floor. The room is clean and is at a good location, just a few minutes walk to the QV Market. I would highly recommend this to both leisure and business travellers.

We stayed for one night at the beginning of April and were greeted at the front desk by the bubbly Kate who was very friendly and helpful. We needed to check in early and since our standard room wasn't ready yet, Kate very kindly upgraded us to a Garden View room overlooking the lovely Flagstaff Gardens. The room was nice and clean with modern furnishings.

We had a great nights sleep thanks to the extremely comfortable bed and the blockout curtains that overlapped nicely to provide a nice dark room.

We caught the Sky Bus direct from Tullamarine Airport to Sourthern Cross Station and the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens was only a few blocks walk from there.

Overall, fabulous staff at a lovely hotel offering great value. Highly recommended.

The hotel was nice, rooms were pretty big and clean. Staff was exceptional. Concierge and reception were very friendly, warm, and welcoming. Housekeeping did an excellent job keeping the rooms clean, toiletries and towels available. The entire hotel is non-smoking, which was definitely a PLUS for us. No complaints about the hotel. Only issue was location. It was a bit far from the CBD and most sightseeing spots, so we almost always had to take transportation. Good thing is the free city circle tram is close by, but it stops running after 6pm. Very close to the Queen Victoria Market. If you plan to go there a lot, then this hotel is perfect. Overall, excellent hotel and I would recommend staying here.
