We stayed here for 8 nights in November 2013. The room was very comfortable, we had a view of The river, Flinders station and the CBD and we managed to take some fabulous photos from the room.
We were taking some trips out to the Mornington peninsula so being so close to Flinders was very handy. Our only complaints are the price of the breakfast, if you only fancy tea, orange and a pastry then it's very pricey, you are encouraged (by the pricing for the individual items) to go for the continental or the full buffet and end up spending 30 or 40 dollars which mounts up. I think this pricing is par for the course for the big name hotels and the current exchange rate with the pound didn't help either. We ended up popping next door to the small mall which had an excellent food court and buying coffee and a muffin, or a fruit cup. Much cheaper option. We also had dinner there a couple of times and the thai food was excellent.
Our other complaint was the internet availability. We were each allowed one hour free wifi but had to sit in the lobby to use it. We paid for one device to have access in the room a couple of days and found that we used up the data limit before our 24 hours was up. I feel that when you are paying a lot of money to stay in a hotel there should be free wifi available, in the room, sitting in the lobby and sending messages about what a lovely time you are having, is not fun. I understand having a data limit, but not a low limit especially when you have paid a daily rate.
These are two niggles but aside from that I loved the location of the hotel, the beds were very comfortable, there were good sized mugs in the room and we got free bottled water beside our beds each night which was handy. The service in the hotel was good and the reception people and the concierge were always very helpful. The mall next door provides the cheaper breakfast and free internet also so the combination worked well.
