We spent 2 nights at the Grand Hotel Melbourne. One at the beginning of our holiday and one at the end in May. This hotel use to be the offices of Victoria Railways and has been converted in Hotel apartments and Residential apartments. The hallways are wide with high ceilings. The doors to the rooms are wide with a bean bag door stop to keep the door open when bringing in your luggage. A nice touch I thought. The 1 bedroom units come with a fully equipped kitchen with the bedroom up a flight of stairs to the loft. If you are only overnighting at the Grand I suggest you leave your suitcase in the lounge area instead of carrying it up the stairs. Our lounge area consisted of a lounge and lounge chair with plenty of space. The rooms are decked out in furniture to compliment the era of the building which I think dates back to the early 1900's.
The bedroom consisted of a King bed and wardrobe and the bathroom was small but well decked out. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not eat at the hotel because there was an abundance of restaurants just a tram trip away. The tram stops are just out the carpark in front of the hotel entrance. The bus from the airport is at Southern Cross station which is only a 5 minute walk away if that. This is a very nice hotel close to transport, attractions, casino and restaurants.
