Having stayed at the Olsen in the past, I decided to stay at the Blackman this time around while in Melbourne for a business trip. I arrived quite late on the Sunday night after a brutal international flight to find that the hotel's computer system was down. Despite the issue, the staff were friendly and efficient and after seeing how tired we were, checked us into the room manually.
The rooms are modern and comfortable. Our room had two rooms, both with queen sized beds and huge TVs. The room service was quick and tasty and hit the spot after a long trip. The in-room breakfast was great too, although a little on the pricy side for what you got.
The location is great if you have business on St Kilda Rd, but is a short taxi or tram trip to the centre of town.
The Art Series hotels are a breath of fresh air in the Melbourne hotel scene. Thumbs up!
