We looked for accommodation for an Easter break in Melbourne. This well appointed hotel is located across the road from Southern Cross Railway Station. This means that you don't need to hire a car. The hotel is within walking distance of the CBD, Docklands, Southbank. The railway station across the street gives you access to anywhere you want to go, and then there are trams. How good is that? The hotel room we had was twin and was spacious, tastefully furnished, and came with plenty of storage and hanging space, a safe, a flat screen TV, access to internet (for an exorbitant fee - take your 'dongle') well stocked bar 'fridge and a writing desk. The bathroom was small but well stocked with fluffy white towels and quality soaps and shampoo. The bathroom, however, is where things fell down a bit: there was mold on the grouting in the bathtub/shower. The step into and out of the bath tub was just that bit too high which is an unnecessary risk to introduce into the equation. There is nothing to hold onto to steady yourself, should you need to, except for the flat of your hand against wet slippery tiles or the glass swinging door around the shower, deadly. This is a serious fault in the rooms and if you are an older person I would counsel against choosing this hotel on this issue alone. The foyer is attractive and there is a room where you can use computers. The reception staff are competent and helpful. They are happy to store your luggage if you need to. The breakfast room/restaurant is very pleasant and the breakfasts are extraordinarily good. The staff in the restaurant are helpful and courteous. There is no good reason to have breakfast anywhere else really. We noticed that an American Youth Orchestra was checking out while we were there, and that most of the clientele were younger people who looked as though they had just graduated from backpacking. In the immediate neighborhood there is the largest Convenience Store I have ever seen, so that makes life easy if you have forgotten anything or you want a midnight snack.
