The Marriot Melbourne was a very nice hotel perfectly located to visit theatre.
We arrived very late as all aircraft had been delayed across the nation due to a power disruption in Sydney. We must have been the last guests to arrive as we seem to have gotten the last room at the inn.
When I got my booking confirmation out & checked - it did say lovely city views - I thort maybe I had imagined it.... when I opened the curtains to see a massive brick wall @ $450 per night for 2 nights.....Not happening
So I too my paper with me - and approached reception saying I wasn't happy with the room as I was promised a "city - view". The lady was not happy, and said that was the only room left.
I told her I don't want it - i want what I booked - a room with city views.
A man interjected and offered to take me to another room with views.
When we arrived and opened the door - Bang - INSTANT - FRESH PAINT - HEADACHE.
I walked one step in & then straight out.
Back to reception - an amount of wells & wont's, & eventually got upgraded to a suite.
Now we had a lounge room and a bedroom. No Smell & a lovely city view!!
The rest of our stay was wonderful & the staff in the corporate lounge were very attentive.
I would stay here again if I was attending the theatre; but always make sure you get what you pay for.......
