Stayed here for just the one night as I had an event in Melbourne, Location was fairly good as we used the Public Transport system which was easy enough to navigate to the hotel.
Room was clean and quite spacious, very modern and quite a nice view. They don't however use quilt covers and the bed was quite a mess by the next day.
Had a few issues, housekeeping barged straight in on the afternoon without knocking (2 of them) trying to restock the mini bar. Luckily we where just watching TV however they kept trying to restock the fridge, it was like halfway through they realised they shouldn't of been there and then just left all the stock for the fridge on the bench and walked out. I was expecting a bill for some of the mini bar however that didn't come.
Other problem I had was I couldn't find a pair of shoes anywhere when packing, rushing to make it to the airport to catch a flight I called the hotel to let them know, I was told housekeeping would check and call me back, about 6hrs later I called them back after not hearing from them and flown back to my state. I was told that my shoes where in the room next door.
Not sure how that happened and whilst i'd drank a little the night before it wasn't that much!
Anyway the hotel put my shoes in a post bag and charged my credit card for the postage!
