I last visited the Olsen 3 years ago (I reviewed it then too) and loved it.
I needed to come to Melbourne recently for just one night to attend a conference and wondered if lightening could strike twice ... and it did!!
Check-in was super easy and low fuss, and I very quickly got to my room ready to crash after a long day of brain strain ... to find a beautiful hand written note with a little chocolatey gift on my bed to welcome me back. What a fantastic way to make someone feel great after a hard day : ) and after a visit once, three years ago.
Of course they had also opened an art book open at a fabulous piece of Mr Olsen art and the whole room was ready and waiting for me to relax.
These guys get that the little things are what differentiate you and strive to excel at them. This stood out against a major chain I spent the previous weekend at in Melbourne that over all is a beautiful building but my experience was I was just one of many guests and had multiple little things go wrong.
Chapel St is even better than I remember ... I would encourage you to have a chilled out weekend at the Olsen and then wander down Chapel St and eat and discover to your heart's content!
