I’m not sure where to begin except to say that I’m surprised anyone would waste millions of dollars building a building of such low quality in Melbourne’s CBD. The heat rises and is not properly ventilated, so at the top, even on a cool night,...More

We stayed there for 4 nights with 2 children. Great room and service. Location was great but required a tram ride to most venues, with the exception of the markets. We would definitely stay there again. View from 68th floor was beautiful.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
