My husband and I travelled to Melbourne (Fri 31/1 - Sun 2/2) for a performance at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Initially, I was worried the hotel might be a bit far away being in The Docklands, however, I had managed to get a good deal on the room of $312.80 for the 2 nights and after looking at a map we decided to book anyway. When we did venture the walk to Southbank I was happy that, in fact, it took only ten minutes or so. You do need to cross a busy road, but there are traffic lights with a pedestrian crossing.
We arrived at the hotel at 8:30am with view to dropping our bags off and having a look around the area until check-in. I was extremely tired having had little sleep and was very pleasantly surprised when the young guy at the front desk was able to check us in immediately as there was an available room (THANKYOU!)
The room we were checked into was on the 8th floor and had an excellent view of the side of the channel nine (?) building and some building works, lol. We didn't really care about the view, that's not what we were there for. The room was quiet and, although quite small, had everything we needed. It was also clean and well presented.
The bed was *very* firm, but none the less reasonably comfortable and we both slept well each night. The bathroom was clean and neat, with modern finishes.
The hotel had a limited room service menu which we ordered from one night. Our meals came promptly and were pretty nice.
Although the only staff we ever saw were the front desk staff (and I think it was one of the front desk guys who brought up the room service) they were friendly and helpful every time we spoke to them.
I have to add though that the hotel doesn't really have that 4-star 'feel' to it even though it is rated as such. However, while we would usually stay at a 'proper' 4 (or 5) star hotel, if we were able to get a great rate again we'd probably stay there next time.
