Where did I stay?
At the Holiday Inn on Flinders you might expect …
A small boutique hotel in a great position on the corner of Flinders Lane and Spencer Street, just a short stroll down to Southbank and close to the Etihad Stadium.
Expect an easy walk to the Southern Cross Station. The city circle tram is right on the doorstep.
Expect different bed options from twin, king and suite. We stayed in a king sized suite which had extra living space and a fold out sofa.
Expect a gym, sauna and outdoor heated pool.
Expect a small bar and restaurant.
Expect style and comfort – Enjoy firm or soft pillows with a nice touch of stylish buttons.
Expect to feel at one with the city – our room had floor length windows and a vibrant city view.
Expect a large bathroom, big flat screen T.V. and interesting art on the walls.
Expect helpful staff.
