This hotel is simply in the best location and the rooms are reasonably priced. If you are in Melbourne on vacation and a tourist, I don’t think you can ask for much more.

Our room was clean and we received an upgrade which was nice- it is not luxury nor does it pretend to be but the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Check in and out is always efficient and the breakfast is very nice with plenty...More
The hotel staff were excellent, but the rooms we stayed in had been "upgraded" cheaply with the old parts that weren't touched still in damaged and poor state. Location is brilliant but the building works being undertaken nearby create at atmosphere of everything being in...More

The Swanston Hotel, Grand Mercure Hotel Melbourne ,
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

The self-parking is about 5-10min walk away and it’s 15aud a day / entry. Meaning you either leave your car at the car park for 24 hours or pay every time you want to drive out the car. If you park with the hotel’s valet, its 45aud a day but you can retrieve the car from the valet as many times as you want. Just that they require a 30min advance notice. I believe that the place that the valet parks the car is the same as the place you have to self park. However, you can drive to the hotel and drop off your belongings first then go to the car park. The valet allowed me to do that with no additional charge. Hope this helps!
