Initially going to Melbourne was a family trip for the first time- just the three of us. Melbourne is definitely a business city with a touch of cultural and arts compared to visiting the Gold Coast (resort type) before this stay. Staying at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins was unique because we expected your standard city chain hotel experience which it wasn't. The main lobby is on the first floor which we had to go up thru the shopping mall - which was OK for us, but they compensated this with a nice lobby entrance with a "Bon Jour" greeting. We felt very comfortable immediately. The service at the reception was friendly, polite and helpful. We then immediately went to our rooms and it was magnificent ! We had the corner room (highly recommended) and you could see the Northern East side of this City from a top view. Just splendid !. We also enjoyed our bed - very comfortable and the pillows - aahhh. We needed this after a long trip. Now, this is still more of a business hotel. It's not really ideal for children, although our child enjoyed the flat screen TV and audio music system complete with automatic push buttons bedside- she was happy. I would stay in this hotel definitely again - well worth the experience !
