Our Hotel in Melbourne

We stayed in the suburb of South Yarra. (In the U.S. we would probably call this a neighborhood rather than a suburb given its proximity, density, and physical connections to the rest of the city.) Our hotel was a on a quiet street with lovely old buildings and a tram line. It was about a block away from the Royal Botanic Gardens and around the corner from Botanical, one of the city’s better restaurants. The hotel itself, The Hatton, was a boutique hotel with a cozy reception/coffee lounge where a fire kept the winter chill at bay. The rooms were somewhat Spartan, but comfortable and in keeping with the casual, hip, sophistication of the public spaces in the hotel.
