I generally love all the Accor hotels so when I was in Melbourne I just had to stay there. Just as expected, the Accor I stayed at was everything I needed and more. First of all, if you never visited Melbourne you should know it’s a huge city. It’s very easy to get lost so you need a reputable hotel.

I stayed at Mercure Melbourne Treasury Gardens, mostly because of the great view. There is nothing better than waking up and see the Treasury Gardens with your own eyes. I also like sports so it was nice being so close to the Rod Laver arena.

I needed a double suite and the rooms are simply amazing. The bathroom was spacious and modern but also felt cozy. It has a large shower and the water pressure is good. Other hotels don’t offer so many extras, but I was completely satisfied here. The following day I went to the spa for a honey massage, and that was a real treat. If you come here remember to check it out. The massages last for one hour and you will feel like a brand new person afterwards.

Now for the restaurants. I was pleased to see the diverse menu and styles. You can try out Japanese cuisine, go to an American restaurant or try seafood. I loved the shrimp and the tuna salad. The hotel has a lounge so I went there in the evening to have a drink and relax. You don’t even need to get out of the hotel if you’re tired. I spent an entire day in and the room service was very good. The staff were not only polite but you could see they enjoy their work. Overall I had a great time here, so I am planning to return soon enough. There are plenty of things to do.
