    The Herbert is centrally situated, very convenient to Powell Street cable car line, a supermarket next door and lots of breakfast places around. It gets a little noisy during the night but we still managed to get a good night's sleep.

    Great location and helpful front desk staff. A cleaner walked into room without knocking at 7.45am when myself and my partner were both asleep which was disappointing. Apart from this an enjoyable stay.

    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

    I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra
