This hotel has some good points and some bad I will list the bad first. First and foremost is the keying system for the elevator and the rooms they have second rate system that immediately needs to be replaced. This was absolutely the most annoying thing to happen to me at any hotel, my key was replaced no less then 30 times in 5 days. The shower is odd and the water spills all over the bathroom no matter how carefully you shower. The hotel is slightly noisy and we had an issue for 15 minutes with music one night.
The room design is excellent free Internet works well. The hotels location is central to many places in Melbourne. Mini Bar a plus and breakfast was enough for my family. If they improve a few items I would give them 4 stars.
