We just returned from a three night stay at the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens. We arrived early in the day we were checking in and were quickly greater by the concierge - Darryl who took our bags and showed us to the front desk. The manager on duty was equally as friendly and surprised us by telling us our room was ready.
Overall, the room itself was quite like any hotel room. The fee for extra bedding for a child is a little excessive (we made do with what was available in the room). Putting a rollaway bed in a standard room would have been quite tight.
The location, practically next door to the Queen Victoria Markets is great if you are looking for a quick and tasty meal. it's a bit of a walk into ChinaTown or toward the SouthGate area of the city. That said, it's only a couple blocks from either the train or the city circle free tram. The inclusion of wifi in the room rate is a definitely bonus, and somewhat unusual to find in Australia.
What makes this hotel stand out is the outstanding service. Darryl, in particular, went out of his way to ensure we were always well taken care of. He always made us feel as though he had all the time in the world to talk and make recommendations. Our son always looked forward to chatting with him about our day, AFL, etc. His recommendations for where to eat and what to do were spot on. He appeared to readily identify with our interests and make recommendations that were sure to meet our needs. His genuine interest and personality makes him a huge asset to this hotel.
We enjoyed our stay at the Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens and would definitely recommend this location to friends or family travelling to Melbourne.
