Review: PARKROYAL Hotel - Melbourne Airport

Formerly the 'Hilton Airport Hotel', the PARKROYAL boasts of an improved ambiance and service.  You wouldn't expect an orange theme to work throughout a hotel, but somehow it was pulled off very well.  The warmth of the colours ensure a cosy feel and the more neutral room colours are soothing.  

I was very pleased with the staff members, friendly smiles and attitude throughout.  Would highly recommend it to business travellers.  Convenient if you are catching a flight the next morning, but certainly quite a distance from the city.  Rooms are pleasant and airport views are impressive.

Bookings can be made via their website: 






A pleasant lobby area, easy access to the restaurant





The suite is spacious and inviting - big enough to relax or hold a small meeting




Spacious and clean bathroom


Large bed and 'open space' feel (suite)


Stunning views of aircraft departures


Nice and close with airlines that frequent Australian skies


The perfect hotel for plane spotters



Cleanliness - 9/10
Service - 9/10
Location (accessibility) - 10/10 (easy to access airport and city - taxis, buses)
Location (ambiance) - 7/10 
Amenities - 9/10
Technology (TV, internet connectivity, radios) - 9/10

How likely I will be revisiting: Highly Likely

Overall rating: 9/10

In a sentence:  The PARKROYAL hotel at Melbourne Airport is perfect for the business traveller.  If you don't mind waking up to the sight of planes, then this hotel is ideal for a quick stopover - only a few minutes walk to the check-in counters.
