We've just checked out of this hotel and very much enjoyed our stay! If you're arriving by bus from the airport or by train, the location is unbeatable! If you're driving, they provide parking about 5 minutes walk away...just park out front in the 5 minute zone and check in, then park. The reception staff were extremely friendly. The interior design is modern, with a respectful nod to the history of this building (built circa 1906). Our Queen Suite was very clean, and had everything you would expect, although the room sizes are not massive. The bar downstairs looked beautiful with a little reading nook, however we were unable to enjoy a beer here as it only opens on weekdays. We did not eat at the downstairs restaurant either. Weekday prices are a bargain for this inner city gem. The location is extremely convenient thanks to a tram stop out the front and the SkyBus/Southern Cross Railway Station all of 5 minutes walk away. Kudos for the hotels "green" policy. Much appreciated. The only gripe I've got is that I could hear the hallway music during the night from bed, although this could have been because the rest of the hotel is whisper quiet! Perhaps it can be turned down a bit during sleep hours? We'll return when we next visit Melbourne.
