Our stay at The Holiday Inn was lovely. From the minute we walked through the door, Teresa was extremely friendly and helpful. All hotels should have a "Teresa" greeting their guests!! She is a
credit to their Hotel.
The Holiday Inn is in a fantastic location. Spencer Street Station and Crown Casino are only minutes away to walk. This is a huge bonus. Everything else is within walking distance or just a short tram ride away.
We normally stay at Crown or Crown Metropol when visiting Melbourne but we wanted to try somewhere different.
I normally find lighting and mirrors in other hotel rooms really difficult to do makeup or see anything however the rooms at The Holiday Inn have great lighting and mirrors which was nice for a change!
There are ample outlets next to the bed and all throughout the room which makes charging devices and using hairdryers/ straighteners a breeze to use.
The rooms are SOOOOOOOO CLEAN!!!! Especially the bathrooms. I am a clean freak so this was a great surprise!
The beds are extremely comfortable and there is a great choice of pillows to chose from.
The electric blinds are a great touch and I love that you have the choice of a complete blackout or let some light in....still with privacy!
We did have an issue with the heater not working on our first nights stay. We stayed two nights and after calling the front desk to advise it was not working, they sent someone straight up with an electric fan and extra blanket. Although this warmed the room up pretty quickly, it would have been nice to have been offered another room as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted to get away to spoil ourselves.
Overall, I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be staying again in the future. [Less]
