We booked the R60 Room.
1) It was meant to have "Panoramic Views of Port Phillip Bay". The first room looked out on a carpark. We were moved to a room that if you looked thru several large apartment buildings justified "Views of Port Phillip Bay" but they were not Panoramic. Misleading? Yes.
2) The room at $520 had no bath. Call me old fashioned but I reckon at that price you get a bath. Indeed none of the rooms (other than suites) have a bath. Rubbish.
3) The hotel has a damp issue. The first floor we went to smelt very stale. The next floor we went to had a series of dehumidifiers running along the corridor. Stinks.
4) The Spa and Pool photographs well. What was missing was the weekend traffic. After finding we had no bath we went up to relax in the Spa/Pool. It was a creche.
5) This is NOT a hotel for a couple weekend. The mix is family and bucks/hens nights. On Sunday morning I got in the elevator to find people in their bikinis dripping in the lift. Very Nice.
In fairness if you are looking for a location close to the One Armed Bandits this is pretty good but the travel lodge around the corner will be a fraction of the price and you will get a bath. If you want a romantic weekend, spend your money in one of the hotels on Collins Street.
