My wife and I have stayed here a few times previously, from the UK, when visiting our Melbourne-based daughter.
We were here for 10 nights and had an excellent corner room on the 47th floor overlooking the bay. Our stay went very smoothly and we again found the CBD base an excellent location for exploring Melbourne and its environs during the day and sampling what the City has to offer by way of restaurants in the evening - as well as the theatre and opera.
As an LeClub Accor Platinum member we also had access to the excellent Club Sofitel on the 35th floor. Here you could have breakfast, a light lunch, tea and evening cocktails and canapes. It was certainly a peaceful haven to return to after a day out!
A special mention should be made of Sharon and her team; she ran a excellent service (in Club Sofitel) and she herself was most welcoming and charming. We thought that all the staff that we came across were a credit to the hotel.
My one and only small gripe was that we found that the Wifi kept dropping in and out (in our room and in Club Sofitel) on our mobiles and laptop.
I'm sure we will be back.More
