Partway through a 2 night leisure stay at Oaks on William. Felt impressed enough to post right now - friendly welcome from staff, easy check in and parking but be ready for a squeeze spot (same as most city car parks I guess). Helpful advice and map from front desk staff on where to lunch - he recommended Hardware Lane and found a great lunch there! Room had well equipped kitchen so could easily stay a week with full size fridge etc. Bed very comfy - a good night's sleep and quiet room. Upgraded to park view (partially obscured by side of building) but still a lovely thought for my husband's birthday. Decor very modern but not lacking in comfort. All in all - will highly recommend to friends and overseas family coming in the next year as ideal Melbourne base. Anything missing? - a couple of cookies and hot choc sachets would really complete the service as just tea and coffee seems a little bare on arrival.

Room Tip: Ask for room with park view that is not obscured by side of the building

Stayed 2 nights in a room on the 19th floor in late Nov 2013. The room was new, comfortable and functional. We loved the kitchenette and not forgetting the balcony, too. It's near QV Market and you should definitely pop by the market in the morning to get breakfast! Will definitely consider staying there again, if the price is right.

I've been staying for 6 nights in this hotel. Everything was good. Hotel is well located and room cleanliness is excellent. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who are planning to have a trip in Melbourne City.

Room Tip: Choose a room at higher floors with garden view.

Just on the edge of the CBD and close to Southern Cross Station, we found this hotel to be an affordable yet comfortable option for our stay.
Everything was close enough to walk to or there was the choice of two tram stops right by the hotel.
The room appeared to be well set up for wheelchair access.

Bought this package on a special, when we got here we paid extra for a park view room. All good so far, except for the doors banging during the night. Imagine our surprise when after being out all day, we came back and found our room not serviced! Rang the front desk to be told because we bought it on a special rate, room servicing was not included!! This certainly was not advertised in the sale, as I would not have taken the room. It seems a little bit cheap to me!

I have never not had a hotel room serviced before in my life, and I've never heard of this "cost saving" issue before.I can't believe this. Spoiled what should have been a good holiday.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask when booking or checking in that your room will be serviced daily.

Thank you for posting your review. It is disappointing to read that your recent experience at the hotel was not entirely enjoyable. Non-serviced room rates offer exceptional value to our guests and web sites promoting such specials should clearly explain any limitations. I will follow this up and do apologise if this was not communicated accurately. I do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the near future.
