Just what I needed
Business traveller over for 2016 August Gift Fair at Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. Very close proximity, comfortable bed and room, and tidy facilities. A little on the more expensive side with inclusions, however happy with room and service.

a great stay- great everything. service. food. view. location.
i really enjoyed my stay. i will return. there was an issue - twice - with the prepaid breakfast. ( at check-in and at breakfast ) i also think $47 for valet is a little too high, considering i parked my car, the staff moved it. i was not aware of this procedure. bur location and facilities really suited me.

After a very distressing week we arrived for our stay a day late. Totally our own fault but the manager ,Andrew, when above and beyond in sorting our confusion out and making sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. We would like to offer him much thanks for this.

Great location
Great Location, Large rooms, Great Service
Though a little expensive, this is a great hotel for a weekend stay, as close to Casino, South Bank & South Wharf. Lovely, large rooms with excellent facilities. And very efficient reception, especially as the hotel was booked out and they were very busy.

Average stay
location to conference centre
Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean but the shower curtain smells bad. We had asked for housekeeping to change it, not sure if they did, but it still did not smell OK. Location was excellent for me as i was attending a conference in at the Exhibition Centre. The hotel is also close to the South Wharf DFO which was really good for shopping. Service was average. Asked for 2 hour extension until 4pm and i was told it is chargeable by a gentlement at the reception. That is fine and i said i will confirm later. I called back later, another lady picked up the phone and said they can't extend because they are fully booked. i checked both Agoda and hotel website and they still had rooms. So i told her i called and was told i could extend by paying. she said NO, cant do. I hung up, called back in half hour for another request, another lady said SURE, we can do that. concierge service was very good though.

Just a barely satisfactory stay
Location, Staff, Sleep
We stayed in the hotel 5 nights. The location is excellent and the atmosphere of the hotel and the staff are very good. However, the room offered has a poor view facing all the boring roofs. We are not sure if all the river view rooms are full but this arrangement gives us some disappointment. The room has a lot of strange small noises occassionally from the windows and the air conditioner. The wifi in the room is pretty slow. One more disappointment is that the carpet in the room near the TV cabinet is not very well cleaned.
