The Cullen is a gorgeous hotel with art everywhere you turn.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The restaurant is quite nice and results in some excellent room service choices (though it was spotty...sometimes very good, sometimes not so much)
There is a very nice kitchenette that is well stocked if you choose to make your own meals.
The beds in this hotel are the singular most amazing beds I've ever slept in. So amazing that when my friends got into their room, the first thing they did was call my room and rave about the "white puffy clouds" we'd be sleeping on for four nights! Downside was only that we didn't want to get out of bed!
The location is good and public transit stop just one block away for a quick easy trip into Melbourne city proper.
On the downside?
The internet access was slow and an incredible pain to use. You needed a code for each day (that you had to pay a fee for) but that code would only work on ONE piece of equipment. This means you paid for connectivity but could only have it on one computer or phone or ipad etc. This is made even worse if you are traveling with a spouse and you each have a laptop etc.
I've stayed all over the world and NEVER experienced this sort of set-up for internet access. None of us liked it and the long convoluted codes were a real pain to enter in each day.
I'd certainly stay here again.
