Mercure Melbourne Treasury Gardens Hotel boasts great conference facilities. I have been to a weekend seminar for a previous business here once, and the conferencing facilities on the ground floor were fantastic. The event I attended provided a fully catered lunch and the the baguettes were filling and rather flavoursome.

I know someone who has stayed at this hotel and they enjoyed the colourful decor with stunning views of Treasury Gardens. The history of Melbourne is reflected upon with art works of key Melbourne landmarks, such as Flinders Street Train Station. There are 164 rooms in total and rates usually begin from $143 per person per night. Excellent Wi-Fi facilities can be enjoyed by all guests. I also found the Wi-Fi facilities on the conferencing side of things to be top notch. There are many other hotels on this end of town that charge more for a one night stay. This side of town does have style and substance, yet this hotel has made this style accessible to more people.
The City View Queen Room is their best value room and includes an extensive pillow menu. The City View King Room also provides great value with a work desk and a generous king size bed. The City View Twin Room provides two king single beds with similar city views.
The rooms with garden views generally attract higher rates. From the garden view rooms, the next level up is the privilege status, where guests enjoy all the facilities of the garden view room with king size beds plus other perks. The additional perks for this room type includes complimentary chocolates, mineral water, magazines, bathrobes, slippers, espresso coffee and a selection of T2 teas. The ultimate in guest comfort at this hotel would have to be the Executive One Bedroom Suite, similar to a spacious one-bedroom apartment with lounge and dining room space.
With the events space, there was ample space for networking in comfortable and decorative surroundings. Some of the details are a bit vivid now, yet the experience was pleasant and spacious.
The hotel is in a great location - on Spring Street, as you're heading towards Richmond and East Melbourne. You have the Treasury House nearby and you're in luxury within a stone's throw from the Paris End of Collins Street. Right at the top of Paris End Collins Street, you will find excellent coffee and luxury shopping options. Walk down further along Collins Street and you're not far from many of Melbourne's best theatres. Convenient tram services are also nearby this hotel, including the free City Circle Tram.
Treasury Gardens is right across the road. Many locals have enjoyed their wedding celebrations near this park. This is a great park to enjoy picnics and lunches. The latter is an attraction to Treasury Gardens, for both locals and visitors to the city of culture that is Melbourne. Watch for oncoming traffic as you cross the road and find yourself in Fitzroy Gardens. You will find a few people practising their zen. It's another park with beautiful greenery and cottages.
