Melbourne’s a great city and a big one too, full of a multitude of bustling suburbs all vying for your attention. While this makes Melbourne an excellent destination (and good on you for choosing it) it can make it difficult to choose a base for your stay. With this in mind, allow us to present our case for booking yourself into Travelodge Hotel Melbourne Docklands.
Location, location, location
The hotel is directly across the road from Etihad Stadium, making it the perfect choice for anyone with a keen interest in AFL or those attending big name events, with performers like Adele, U2, Coldplay and Ed Sheeran racking up concerts at the venue. It’s also right near the iconic Melbourne Star Observation Wheel, bustling shopping and entertainment precinct Harbour Town, one kilometre from Melbourne’s South Bank and two kilometres from the city centre, where you’ll find all the best laneway art, restaurants and small bars. If you do want to go further afield, the tram stops at the end of the street and Southern Cross Station is just one block away. In other words, whatever you want to do in Melbourne, Docklands is the perfect gateway. If you need more convincing, check out our guide for 24 hours in the area.
Comfort and Convenience
If there’s one thing Travelodge Hotels specialise in, it’s knowing which services and amenities really add to your stay. There’s complimentary WiFi (of course), on-site parking, room service, hearty breakfasts, 11am check out, luggage service and laundry. On top of this, the rooms boast very comfy beds and enough space to comfortably unpack and stretch out (and even cook if you book the two-bedroom apartment). The knowledgeable reception staff are always ready to help, whether you need to arrange luggage storage for a few hours after checkout or are after some suggestions for where to have dinner.
