Entering the hotel via the imposing double doors off Flinders Street and finding yourself in the original lobby, you might imagine you are in a gracious old continental hotel, with extravagant mouldings, extensive wood panelling, tall handsome columns, decorative ironwork and restrained leadlight. It is extremely impressive.
Unfortunately adapting the old hotel to modern standards has not been achieved with much flair or elegance, as demonstrated by the rather unremarkable new reception area (complete with cheap smelling vanilla scent infusing the air).
But if you look beyond that, choose a lovely heritage room with quirky character (and excellent double glazing!), and elect to get there via the gorgeous old staircase instead of the lift, you just might have a magical experience reminiscent of the Marvellous Melbourne of old.
