Just spent 5 nights in a one bedroom suite. A lot of positives, the location is great. Close to transport and a good place to use as a base to explore Melbourne but far enough away that you don't get annoyed by the busy night life noises! The staff are excellent. Very polite and quick to respond to requests. Room service was good too and the room attendants were savvy enough when remaking our bed to realise that the extra doonas we had requested were for use for under the sheet to make the bed a bit softer. And that perhaps was the only negative, I'm not one for soft mattresses, i like firm ones, but the queen bed we had was as hard as concrete. After the first night we could hardly walk upright the next morning. With two additional doonas underneath it was a lot better to sleep on, but not good. Oh, and the staff kept putting the aircon on 24c. If we forgot to reset it to 22c after wed get back of an afternon we'd wake up in the middle of the night sweating. If they replace the mattresses then I'd say we'd definitely go back again.
