This is a classy little hotel, perfectly positioned, beautifully appointed and with impeccable service. Four of us stayed there for my daughters graduation at Telstra Dome, which was just a 5 minute walk , and the next day hopped on a tram just outside the door and headed into the CBD to shop.
The hotel rang the week prior to confirm and made the kind and thoughtful offer of a free upgrade to a 3 bedroom apartment rather than the two bedroom we had booked to give us a little extra space. Parking at $15 was excellent with as many exits and entries as we wanted plus the option to leave the car in the carpark even after checkout until we had finished our shopping in the city.
We didn't eat breakfast there but can recommend Langhams just a couple of doors down for excellent, cheap breakfasts and lunches. The real plus of the Alto is that it is slapbang in the middle of some of the best , clubs, bars and cafes as well as being perfectly positioned to tram, train and bus travel, the Docklands trendy precinct and that hideous DFO outlet.
Their own website rates seemed as reasonable as any of the discount sites but I guess shopping around will find the very best deal.
I've stayed at many Melbourne hotels and this for me is the pick for the money, quality, posiion and service.
