On check in the two ladies at reception were incredibly polite, explained the check in process, facilities and how to get to the car park. When we entered the room for the first time we were delighted by everything we saw and kept pointing things out to each other.
The location is superb, only a $10 cab fare to the city, st kilda, casino, theatre, shops, restaurants, MCG, Docklands - everything you need (one adult tram fare to the city is $3.80 so cab is a better choice for two).
The lobby has a french bakery, Depot du Pain, which opens early and has fantastic produce. One night we bought a baguette and some pate to share in our room over a bottle of wine, that is unique I am sure!
Also in the lobby is an Italian restaurant that we only had dessert at but had such a beautiful decor it was a shame we didn't have time to dine there.
And of course the artwork is fabulous and everywhere! The lobby, lifts, the room, hallways and even in some very unexpected places.
Liked Best: The beds were divine, the linen luxurious and the pillows to die for.
Liked Least: No on-site pool :-(
