Great location, short walk to Marvel Stadium & Southern Cross Station; great facilities & friendly, welcoming staff. I went to Melbourne with my teenage daughter to see a concert and this was a fantastic choice of hotel.

Nice Hotel, A bit noisy early on in the evening with slamming doors, having the balcony inside the main building was good & bad such as no natural light into the room, but the balcony was temperature controlled with AC so not cold sitting out at night in winter. Restaurant had good food, with great service but not a fine dining experience as suggested. Central to good shops & Bars with Rialto & Yarra on the door step.

Great hotel to escape from a busy week.

We had a a couple of really busy weeks and decided we needed to get away for a night. The staff could not have been nicer on arrival and check in and they really set the tone for the perfect relaxing break. The room was great, quite and clean. After dinner we returned to the bar for a quite nightcap, hen in the morning we were treated to a lovely breakfast. It was really the break we needed
