Great location and view.
Disappointing as it was my first time at this hotel. When we tried to check in (3 rooms) at 2.45pm, two rooms were unavailable because they had not been cleaned. When went to the one room which was ready and unfortunately it had a stale body odour smell. I went and asked for air freshener,which the maid gave me. Then we went down stairs to check the bar and found that cocktails were a bit expensive at $17 so we asked for some glasses to be sent to our room. We sat in one room while the other two rooms were cleaned. Later, the reception desk sent up 2 bottles of wine to apologise, which was kind of them. The view from our room of the Yarra and Southbank was very good. We later went to the Casino complex and found that the location was within 5 mins easy walk which was great and saved on transport costs. The valet parking onsite is very expensive at $47, off site parking is available. When we came back about 10.30pm we went to the bar for cocktails and was disappointed to see it was closed. The next day breakfast was also disappointing as there were no gluten free breads or similar available and although they took our money, they began clearing our table within 20 mins of arriving, taking away my friends plate while she was still having breakfast. Overall it was ok, but I was a little disappointed for the amount I spent compared to other alternatives.
