The 206-room Melbourne Parkview Hotel is a solid upper-middle-range option south of Melbourne's city center. The hotel overlooks Albert Park, but reaching most sights will require a drive. Room decor is contemporary if chain-like: It's a step above what one might find at a Holiday Inn, and includes with red striped bedding accents, IKEA-esque furniture, and work desks. Modern bathrooms have big walk-in showers with rainfall showerheads. All rooms have swivel flat-screen TVs with laptop hookups that are inset in the entertainment units, as well as free Wi-Fi. Hotel features include a small fitness center with floor-to-ceiling windows and city views; a jetted rooftop plunge pool and Jacuzzi under a domed glass ceiling, a sauna, and laundry facilities -- all adding to its value.
The Melbourne Parkview Hotel is located south of Melbourne's City Centre, overlooking Albert Park. Most major sights will require a drive, though South Yarra is a 30-minute walk, for guests who don't mind a trek.
Melbourne may be Australia's second largest city (with four million residents), but it's the country's cultural capital. It's situated on Port Phillip Bay, and packed with Victorian buildings, museums, galleries, large parks, and gardens. The tree-lined streets and green spaces create a clean, eco-friendly vibe, which might be a reason why Melbourne has consistently been dubbed as one of the world's most livable cities.
