First time I have stayed at the Royce. I was there on 3 separate occasions over a 5 week period, pleasure mixed with a few hours of business. The staff are unusually friendly & accommodating. No request was too much for them, including storing clothes for a week while I traveled interstate. They quickly learned my name & made me feel like "family". Ms. Lauren, the front office manager, was the BEST I have ever encountered. Location is perfect for me; 5 minutes on the tram to Southbank & CBD. Restaurant & Bar are upscale but informal & cater to the locals as much as hotel guests. The quality of service is just like that at the front office. I have made this my home away from home in Melbourne & will definitely return; hopefully to Room 305 on the end, with a balcony, overlooking Melbourne Grammar School. Rooms are comfortable & reasonably spacious. Only suggestion is to upgrade the availability of wi-fi to international standards. It's available, but accessing it is a nuisance & the daily cost is high. All-in-all a wonderful stay!!!
