The best night’s sleep in Melbourne

My pet peeve when staying in a city centre hotel is being kept awake by buses, trams, rubbish collection trucks and late night revellers. So, when I come across a hotel which is quiet, it’s pretty much a winner for me.

Recently refurbished, the Mercure Treasury Gardens enjoys park views from all rooms, something not many city hotels can claim. And while this makes for an extremely pleasant stay, it’s the quality of the double-glazing which makes me happy. Now, it may seem ridiculous that the thickness of a window is what makes a hotel attractive. There are many hotels around which claim to have the comfiest beds or the most extensive pillow menu, but if the environment is noisy, then these items are pointless.

It’s not only the peace and tranquillity which makes the Mercure Treasury Gardens top of my list of Melbourne hotels, the setting is just as special. Garden rooms offer views of the lush green Treasury Gardens but what is perhaps more amazing for a city centre hotel is that even the rooms at the back of the hotel enjoy garden views, with the gardens of 1 Spring Street in the vicinity.

Now for those who don’t enjoy staying in a chain hotel because they lack character, the Mercure Treasury Gardens has ensured that you don’t forget which city you’re in. As you lie on your bed, enjoying a decent night’s sleep, the headboard behind you depicts a Melbourne icon. So you can sleep under the arches of Flinders Street Station, without the comings and goings of commuters.

And the best bit… you can enjoy a night in the Mercure Treasury Gardens from just $135, all this and the city on your doorstep.
