Plano, Texas
Reviewed 23 February 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great location to have as a base for sightseeing in Melbourne. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very good, and the staff were all very helpful. Get a riverview room. It is worth it.

It has awesome views across the Yarra if you pay a little extra for a riverview room. This time we were kindly upgraded to a corner...

It had been about 3 years since I stayed here and the good news is that they have obviously done some work on the bathrooms, as no more showers in the tub - which is a pet peeve of mine in 4 star accommodation.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
