From the moment we arrived the Hotel and its staff exuded quality. From check in to check out the staff were superb, helpful, professional and friendly, with a personal touch. We particularly liked the fact that they recognised and remembered you each day and welcomed you back to the restaurants.
We liked the location on the south bank of the river Yarra, loads of bars and restaurants all around, and about an easy, flat 20 minute walk to the City Centre. We also found it easy to stroll to the various lovely open grassy parks that ring the outskirts of the CBD and also to the Cricket ground and Rod Laver Arena.
As for the Hotel décor, as other reviewers have stated, the foyer and we felt the corridors and doors could be a little brighter, but our Queen family room was beautifully appointed and very clean. The floor to ceiling windows from our 16th floor room afforded magnificent bay views of the sea, and weren't spoiled by the views of the freeway or the retail outlets below, most spectacular when picking up the night time lights of the City. We slept very well in the comfortable bed and experienced no noise.
We loved the very extensive breakfast, and ate at the Nuevo 37 restaurant in the evening, which we found to have a varied menu and very good service.
We had a lovely stay in Melbourne and were very pleased with our choice of Hotel.
