4/10 Fair

A 2-star hotel anywhere else (and not a nice one)
This would be a 2-star hotel anywhere else in the world. Overpriced rooms with views of air-conditioning units and concrete balconies. The bathtub was stained with god-knows-what. The doors were so thin we could hear slippers against carpet in the hallway. Neither the coffee nor the tea had been restocked, nor were then restocked, after we asked about them. And we were told the nearby parking was free, then were fleeced for its cost upon checkout. If you absolutely have to visit the sterile ghost-town that is Melbourne, do try to stay elsewhere.

10/10 Exceptional

Was happy with my stay overall. Room was clean, service was great. One criticism was, upon arriving I felt a bit deceived I was under the assumption parking would be valet. I had travelled 4 hours to be in Melbourne for a business trip. Valet parking was next door, only if there was availability (small parking lot) was then told by the attendants it was at capacity and I would need to drive to another lot and leave there, it would be at a discounted rate. This was an issue having to drive in peak hour traffic to move my car elsewhere and manage to carry my bags by hand back to the hotel. Made for a stressful arrival. Other than that was happy with my stay.
