Perfect in every way
This property is our new go to in Melbourne! Perfectly located and subliminally comfortable. We stayed in The Alice Suite on the 17th floor and it was heaven. Great view too. Topped of with a stroll up the street, across St Kilda Road and through the park to a superb French Restaurant for dinner, Bistro Gitan. A fabulous 3 days.

Great new hotel
We got there and there was a mix up with my booking. The staff member was lovely and helpful and managed to get us a room which was lovely and everything we wanted and more. We will be sure to come back next time.
