Stayed for 4 nights in June for work as had a conference there.
The room was on the smaller size, but sufficient for 1 person. It had a good comfortable bed, good sized desk and a single chair.
The bed was made up with a doona but no sheets - more eurpoean. This would have been OK if Melbourne was colder, but it was slightly warmer than you'd expect so I had to try and turn the A/C down. Trouble was the best I could achieve was 22 degrees (set at 20) and it was too hot for the bedding. The A/C made the room a bit dry for me. Had disturbed sleep as a result.
The bathroom was compact but done well - very nice. It had a timed sensor light so no need to find the switch in the middle of the night. Towels were changed daily (even when hung up). Shower head was generous. Water temperature good but not blistering hot. Good hairdryer in drawer. Toilet was close to shower entry so after you'd showered you did have to step in splashed water to use the wc but I just left the mat down.
The mini bar was average in terms of choice, but prices good (cheaper than 7 eleven).
Ipod dock in the room came in handy for charing the phone when my cable broke.
Took my own optus wi-fi but couldn't get optus signal in the room very opten.
Absolutely no view - just wall opposite, and from level 5 still couldn't see the sky up the narrow court.
Room service was good. Meal nice and portions good, arrived in specified time and cost was acceptable.
Breakfast in the restaurant was a standard buffet. Nothing to rave about. Choice of 3 or 4 juices. MYO coffee machine. Choice leaf tea or bags. About 4 cereals and selection of dried fruits to top them. None of the cereals was what I'd eat normally. Good array of fresh and tinned fruit, yoghurts and bircher museli (a little sweeter than I was used to). A few pastries to choose from. Toast machine coud have been turned to darker. Bread was nice. Hot buffet changed a little each day but the usual suspects.
Location worked for me.. couldn't complain.
Would consider this hotel again if just for a short trip.
