There were 4-5 persons waiting to check in, the reservation counter was full and everyone seemed busy. I prepared for a long wait, and the usual corporate indifference. I was surprised when the Day Manager, (sorry, can’t remember her name but recalled it was an unusual first name,) joined the staff and started checking guests in. She checked me in although it was only 11:30 am. I asked and got a high level room with stunning views of the city and Yarra River.
The room was well presented with a decent sized desk. I liked the coffee sachet (note singular) and wished there was more. There were bathrooms and slippers. The bathroom had a large shower area.
The bed was divine and just-soft pillows. I recalled last year I did not sleep well, but this time it was blissful. I had the morning paper delivered and read in bed.
I found the concierge friendly and informative. Last year, no one spoke to me, not even a good morning.
Breakfast was about $30, but there are so many dining places on the river front, and within the casino area. Across the river, you had endless choices and Melbourne has great dining places.
I would stay here again if the price is right.
