A beautiful stylish hotel that is done with subtlety and grandeur, not the garishness of some overseas hotels I have stayed in the past couple of weeks. It's old fashioned style and service which for me is far better than the crass superficiality so often found now.
Location depends on your needs, if you are seeking middle of town for business needs, it can be a hassle.
I enjoy the slight isolation particularly as it is close enough to the MCG for finals and some of my favourite restaurants around Flinders Lane and the Paris end of Collins Street for quality shopping.
Also close to a station for train travel.
One of the best club lounges you will find in Australia.
One of my negatives has always been the placement and number of power points needed for computer, iPad and phone etc. but full marks to the team as they already had double adaptors ready for me.More
