Melbourne: The Hotel Edition

Not only did we do a crazy amount of eating, we also did a bit of hotel jumping on our recent trip to Melbourne. In total we stayed at three different hotels.

1: The Westin, Melbourne
The Pros – Clean minimalistic design, excellent service, incredibly comfy bed, perfect location right at the heart of the CBD, close to Flinders Train Station and the tram stops, bathtub available, large bathroom, grand lobby
The Cons – Poor wifi connection (we ended up asking for a router for the room), difficult toilet flushing (the toilet cover was half covering the buttons which were also very hard to press)
