Having a 24 hour stopover in Melbourne on my way home from overseas and wanting something convenient, the Parkroyal was the obvious choice. I was a little hesitant about what the noise of airplanes taking off all day and night might create but I splurged and got a room 'airside' with a view of the runway.
I couldn't believe just how much of the outside world noise is shut out! Until late at night, I really didn't hear one plane take off and even later, when I could hear them, it was just dull back background noise.
The room was fine, clean with everything I needed for an overnight stay available. The staff at reception were friendly and polite - offering me an early check in when I arrived even though I was only asking to leave my bag until it was check in time.
The food from the restaurant in the hotel was good, simple but tasty.
No complaints! And I ended up quite enjoying whiling away the hours watching the hustle and bustle of airport life below.More
