Last year Accor was having a 50% off sale on hotels worldwide, and I always wanted to come back to Melbourne for a getaway, my favourite Australian city away from home, so I took advantage of it and booked the King bed for one night, although for some reason the room that I got did not have the lounge/couch that was shown on the pic, still I liked it and it was no big deal for me. Checked-in, no problems and the building had a very old-feel to it, as it used to be the state railway administration building before it was converted into a hotel. I was on the sixth floor, and had a nice view overlooking the docklands, trains and other hotel rooms. Slept good, the bathroom was good and it had kitchen facilities, although I never used them. There is a big swimming pool, sauna and a gym, although the bench and bar are not high-quality, plus it was unstable if you're bench pressing 50kg or more, it did the job. The hotel is close to a 7-Eleven, trams, Crown Casino, Southern Cross Station and a 15 minute walk to the mall, Bourke and Swanston Streets for other entertainment and dining. All in all, I loved this place, very different to the modern hotels that I am used to staying in, I would recommend this place for everyone, especially couples with Valentines Day coming up.
