hotel with car parking

We arrive in Melbourne on Sat. coming and unfortunately have a car. Does anyone know of a hotel/motel with a car park as we drive in from the GOR whereas we do not have to enter the city by car. We like to use public transport but do not want to be too far from the "action" and CBD. Price range around 155-200 dollars (aus). Thank you.

Try the following ( I have not checked on price - got to let you do some research yourself -lol);

Rydges North Melbourne 0- near the zoo (just off Flemington rd, about 2 klms from the city by tram);

www.rydges.com

Vibe Carlton (on Royal parade about 2-3klms north of the city on a tree lined blvd and near the zoo) - trams run right down Royal parade into the city;

Rydges Carlton - on Swanston st about 1-2 klms out of the city and near the restaurant strip of Lygon st. ;

Princess Park motor inn - also on Royal Parade and not far from the Vibe (above) - same access to city;

If you decide to go to any of the above hotels, as you come off the Westgate Bridge, you'd be best to take the Bolte Bridge and take Racecourse Road exit. You'll avoid driving anywhere near the CBD then.

Thanks for that. We have booked a room at Rydges North for Sat. and cannot wait to arrive in Melbourne. We have been washed out driving the GOR and need somewhere to dry out. Does anyone out there know of a good restaurant in Melbourne.......................(only joking). Thanks, Anne.

Remember if you do take the Bolte bridge after the Westgate bridge - the Bolte bridge is part of the Citylink toll road so you need to make sure you have paid your toll electronically (there are no toll booths).

As already mentioned, there's an electronic toll on the Westgate Bridge, but by way of clarification, you've got 3 days after you travel to sort out the payment. The phone number is posted alongside the road, and is 13 26 29. Here's the website:

Ooops, sorry, that's right! NO toll on Westgate. I meant to say Bolte, should have been more careful. (I owe you a drink if you're at the meet up).
