After always being one to stay in the hearts centre of Melbourne we were initially enticed to stay at the Como for its more family friendly location of Chapel Street. Now I would not stay anywhere else. In terms of location, Chapel is still close enough to the city for city visits (short tram, train or taxi ride) but has its own charm and über cool character with shopping, restaurants, bars, cinemas, markets and parks at your door step. It is close to Melbourne Park, Hisense Arena, the MCG, Albert Park, Caufield Racecourse and the trendy St Kilda DIstrict.
Now for the Como. You are greeted by friendly staff who are 100% attentive and professional. The reception itself is modern and fresh in design. This theme continues through to the guest rooms. No details have been spared with luxurious beds, linen, bath robes, morrissey toiletries and a huge marble bathroom complete with Spa Bath. You can even contact reception and have a bubble bath complete with bath salts, candles and champagne drawn for you at a small cost. Another cute touch and tradition of the Como are the aqua coloured rubber duckies left in your bathroom with a take me home note around their necks. Our 2yo son loved this and still plays with it in his bath at home. Housekeeping was fantastic and the rooms and hotel were always presented immaculately.
Facilities at the hotel are generous - a wine bar offering drinks and canapés, a roof top pool with sunlounges and an outdoor terrace, a well appointed gym and sauna. Breakfast is on offer in the brasseries each morning with al a carte options or full buffet. The room service menu is also extensive and a decent option after a busy day out on your feet when you just want to stay in and relax.
The hotel offers various room types at what I believe is a great price point for the space and luxury you receive. Great place for families with two bedroom suite option. I will never stay anywhere else whilst in Melbourne again - the hotel and location is just perfect! I can be trendy whilst having my family in tow. See you soon Como!
