Like other reviewers I can say that the location is great - in the Melbourne CBD close to shopping, restaurants, Chinatown, trams... the lot. I stayed in the week preceding the Grand Prix and it was busy but the service was still fast and friendly. I purchased breakfast in the package and enjoyed a lovely continental breakfast in Cocoon (there were plenty of muffins and pastries). You could order a hot breakfast if you wished. I also enjoyed a hot breakfast with a colleague in the main breakfast lounge and this was much busier and the food was dispayed in the standard baine marie set up. Dinner one night was a special "Parma and Chips" in Cocoon and it was very nice and great value at $16.00 for a hotel like this. I was on the second floor and was surprised how quiet it was. Some other hotels in the CBD often have the early morning rubbish truck but I did not hear this one. Overall - a very enjoyable stay and I will stay again.
