The Grand Dame of Melbourne Hotels, full of history more so than any other hotel in town - it was here that Alfred Deakin spent time writing parts of the Australian
Federal Constitution. Hampered by a lack of a pool and the somewhat tired decor of the rooms, the building as such as well as the lobby with the bar in particular have a beautiful
historical atmosphere. For those who prize history and authentic design over hours in gym and pools. 4.25/5.
