This has to be one of the best locations in the Melbourne CBD. The hotel is right in the middle of the best part of Collins Street with the porte-cochere on Russell Street. It also is a very short walk to Flinders Street Station, the main train station in Melbourne, and Federation Square, which appears to be billed as the center of town, as well as Swanston Street, which is probably the most happening street in the City.
Rooms are average size, not large, but not too small either, and nice that they have a fair sized sofa in each room. The bathroom is also adequately sized, but not large. The separate showers also have a nice hand shower. Twin beds really are twins, maybe slightly oversized, but not by much. Rooms come with nescafe machines.
The fitness complex also serves as a membership gym open to the outside, so there are a good number of people using the facilities, which is fine, except that the pool is small. I also found the whirlpool not to be very hot, and the cold plunge not to be very cold. Locker room was not the cleanest.
Overall service was good, especially in the club lounge, which is open until about 10pm.More
