Had a room on the 40th floor fantastic views and great facilities. Excellent nights of sleep. We took Qld weather with us and brought it back home when we left so didn't need all those warm clothes after all but you just never know. Walking distance to everything, close to the Melbourne markets and Casino. Cooked breakfast every morning to... More

The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated! Felt like home away from home! The staff were friendly and helpful! I even got a room upgrade! I loved that I could do my laundry every day since I had my own washer and dryer. The location is a bit outside the Free tram zone but I didnt mind. Convenience store... More

Two bedroom apartment on the 30th floor. Spacious and clean with a stunning view of the city. Walking distance to Yarra River and most attractions. 24 hours reception but we had issues to reach out to someone at night (12am) to ask for help/info

Awesome 1 bdrm apartment, has everything you could need for a weeks stay. Short walk to casino, tram, good cafes, outlet shopping centre & there is a supermarket about to open on the next block. Only small issue was the road noise could get quite loud, other than that great. Will be where I stay in Melbourne from now on

at a busy intersection but location brilliant and close to the conference centre. Good transport options to city. Apartment clean and well appointed. great view on the 20th floor but had to have door to balcony shut due to traffic noise. reception staff friendly and helpful. good restaurants either at Casino or on Clarendon street.

I absolutely loved my stay here. The hotel lobby is just gorgeous. And the apartment is very, very spacey. I'm not sure why this carries an average of a 4 star review? Because I don't understand why it isn't 6 stars. It's a relatively quick walk / super quick drive to the nearest supermarkets which are just a few streets... More

The apartment was very clean and had everything that you needed for a short stay. Close to The Crown and Melbourne Exhibition centre, so good for conference attendance. I was on the 20th floor and the traffic noise was still bad with the front bedroom window open. The main bedroom had no windows so was very stuffy. My main complaint... More

Its easy to find and good security for your room and car, the only thing was that people on the streets where making noise with their cars in the middle of about 2am in the morning, even do we where on the 7th floor it was still loud. Beside that its clean and comfortable and clean.
