Stayed for a weekend break recently (but I have used the Westin Melbourne for business as well). The whole deal was first class: check-in, the room, concierge service and the location. You cant really go wrong here.
The hotel. Recently renovated, modern, clean and fresh with really large rooms. This was my second stay and the room was as large as the first time so they must all be of a decent size. I was on one of the lower floors with a balcony overlooking Collins Street. There was no issue with noise and being able to open up the doors outside was nice. The rooms were typical high quality Westin and the beads as usual are awesome. We had breakfast in the hotel one morning which was pretty straightforward 5 class hotel fare other than that we did not eat there.
The location for me at least is a winner. You are toward the lower end of Collins Street beside Flinders Lane. Perfect. If your working you can walk everywhere you need. If you are there for the weekend its a 10 minute walk to Southbank. It is a 5 minute walk to the station of your going out to Flemington and the great bars and restaurants in Flinders Lane/Little Collins etc are right on your doorstep. Mix in great shopping etc and you are good to go.
I would personally chose this everytime over staying on Southbank/Crown complex.
