ข้อดี: The lobby had a great feel to it and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and had a great view.
ข้อเสีย: There was a bit of construction in the area but didn't affect our experience to much.
ข้อเสีย: Internet was advertised as with price inclusion, however extra fees applied. Staff at "37" lacked hospitality training. Couldn't order a meal for an hour, was ignored so I went up to my room instead.
ข้อดี: Doubletree at Flinders has all the makings of a being lovely hotel -- warm service, well-maintained rooms and in a very accessible location right next to the tram stops and Flinders Station.
ข้อเสีย: 3 major drawbacks -- a city centre hotel without free in-room wifi access [there is access at a prohibitive price] is really unacceptable in this digital age, and shows a shortsightedness one does not expect from a Hilton brand. Whether you're travelling on business or leisure in Melbourne, wifi access is a must as this is a city firmly in the digital age, and Doubletree shows it lack of vision by not being up to speed.
The pillows were terribly poor quality -- flat, with all the fluffiness gone out of them. Made for a very uncomfortable sleep. Surprising as one would think Hilton would get this fundamental right.
The area immediately around the hotel is dodgy -- with vagrants, drunks, homeless and the general underbelly of a city you hope not to see. Not much Doubletree can do about this, though, as it's a sacrifice you make for train access.
But if you're a single traveller, and have to move about early morning or late at night, be careful. It may not be the best spot to be in.
