Always enjoy an overnight stay in the city, and this hotel is in a fantastic location, close to Flinders Street station, trams, buses and taxis. It is an easy walk across to Southbank, the Arts Centre, Casino, Eureka Tower, and the Exhibition Centre, or into the city itself. We were able to get a great room with a balcony which faced Flinders Street and looked across the river to Southbank. Just superb. The room was quite spacious, well appointed with tea/coffee, bar fridge, glasses etc, very clean and tastefully decorated. The two single beds when made into a King size (courtesy of the lovely housekeeping staff) were/was very comfortable and roomy. The bathroom, though a bit smallish, was quite adequate and again, very clean. The older part of the hotel dates back to early 20th century, and the ground floor entrance and lift lobby is really something. Lots of fine timber and a magnificent decorated ceiling. The leadlight windows are excellent and the cocktail bar, situated in this section of the hotel, very inviting. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, especially concierge and housekeeping, with the valet parking being a great extra for us with all our gear. it was lovely at night to be able to hear the trains coming and going. Not too loud, just nice in the background. we ate out fro dinner and breakfast, as you are very close to so many good cafes and restaurants, but the in house restaurant and room service meals were very reasonably priced with a wide choice of items. had we stayed longer we would have sampled some of these. All this, for a very reasonable price, means we'll be back again.
