Recommended by local friends Westin Melbourne didn't disappoint. Large room, heavenly bed, enormous bathroom with huge bathtub and large walk in shower. Elemis toiletries - all lovely. Ticks all the boxes I expect from Westin. Top marks for location, walking distance to CBD and most tourist attractions.
What really annoyed me was the add-on wifi charges. Free in the lobby but not in the room? So if you walk in off the street and buy a coffee you can get free wifi but pay several hundred dollars for a room and its $20 a day? Come on management, wake-up, add $20 to the room rate if you must, we would probably pay it and leave without feeling ripped off!! Better still give guests free wifi, I travel extensively and most 4-5 star hotels don't add an obvious charge. I don't buy it that not everyone wants wifi so they keep the room rate down. My parents have iPads!
