Stayed at the Rendezvous Hotel on a Friday and Saturday evening. One night used a Scoopon Voucher which had been given to us us a gift and we opted to pay for another night.
First I would like to say that the Scoopon voucher represented great value. A Deluxe Room with breakfast plus 2 x vouchers for drinks in the restaurant or bar plus a $20 voucher to be used at a local spa. The breakfast in the Grill was lovely with a great selection to choose from.
On arrival we were upgraded to a 'Commerce' room which was a pleasant surprise and we were allowed to have a late 1pm check-out on the Sunday. The front desk were pleasant and informative if not a little 'going through the motions'.
On entrance to our room we were stunned at how tiny the room was. I only wonder what size the standard 'Deluxe' room was. Well appointed with an LCD wall mounted television and desk the room was also smart and functional, just tiny!
Lovely modern bathroom with French Connection toiletries my only complaint here would be the lack of towels, impractical glass shower screen which did not extend far enough to stop water splashing everywhere and the worlds smallest vanity. Which for two ladies proved a problem, I had to leave my toiletries bag and it's contents on the floor of the bathroom.
The location is handy to Southbank with quick access via the underpass at Flinders Street Station, the view from our room? A wedge of the Crown Casino could be seen but there also was a car park outside our window (which I think would be noisy on a week day).The Immigration Museum is also just one block to the right as you leave the hotel.
We had trouble with the airconditioning (we cooked the first night) which fortunately was resolved enough by the second night that we did not feel we were sleeping in a sauna. We also had trouble with the key cards which gave access to the room on a couple of occasions which resulted in reception staff coming to the room and open it.
The Concierge staff were very helpful with directions and our online check-in for our flight home.
Overall our stay at The Rendezvous was ok but I do not think that an offer like the one we purchased from Scoopon would be enough enticement for us to return. If room size is not an issue you could do worse.
