We chose this hotel for it's fantastic location and following on from the excellent reviews on this site. Whilst I was mainly very satisfied with our experience, here are a few points on what I see as the positives and draw-backs of this hotel:
Positives: EXCELLENT location. Absolutely fabulous views over the Yarra River and Southbank from our corner river-view 1-bedroom suite. A stone's throw from the Crown complex. Close to some fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars. A short walk to all the best shopping and eateries of the Melbourne lane-ways. Efficient and friendly hotel staff.
Down-sides: Fairly lack-lustre foyer. Unappealing restaurant/bar with cigarette smoke flowing freely into the restaurant from the outdoor bar area. Several dirty marks on the walls in the suite, detracting from an otherwise fairly neat and tidy room. Thin walls between suites and could be quite noisy at times.
Overall, reasonable value for money and superior location in Melbourne CBD, but definite room for improvements.More
