At the banks of the Yarra river, just a short distance away from Melbourne convention centre, we stayed there for a week for the International Diabetes convention.
The staff were kind and friendly and when we arrived early after an overnight flight, kindly provided us with the opportunity to freshen up on the fifth floor. The hotel is just in front of the city tram line, making it very accesible and has some good eating spots nearby such as the Hare and Grace and the Merchant.
The cafe on the ground floor is fairly good and the room service breakfast well proportioned.
Some shortcomings are that the hotel does not lend Australian socket coverters and the
fire show of the Crown across the river may wake you up at due to noise or brightness as they do hourly blasts at least until midnight.
Thought a bit on the expensive side, would not hesitate to stay here again.
