Those who like all the comforts of a big hotel but enjoy boutique flourishes will get a kick out of DoubleTree. Warm cookie when you check in? Tick. Business and fitness centres open 24 hours? Tick. Spacious rooms with city views? Got that covered. The designers who gave this hotel a multi-million dollar refit have taken its location across from Flinders Street Station as their inspiration, from subway-style tiles used in the bathroom to laser-cut bedheads evoking the open curtains of a train carriage. Even the bar is called Platform 270. There’s also a good selection of accessible rooms for guests who need extra space and amenities.
You couldn’t be in a handier spot than this, right in the heart of the CBD with trains and trams on your doorstep and Federation Square just 50 metres away. Hip Flinders Lane is right behind you.
