Editorial review:

The Urban (formerly the Marque) uses a lot of blond wood and white to maximize space, and rooms are simple and calming. Some rooms have circular spas. The staff are helpful, but though they might try to be a boutique hotel, the public areas are a bit bland.

                          The 11am check out, great location, great quality bed, relaxed but professional staff.

                          They arranged an early check-in for me.

                          I paid cash when I checked in, but I wasn't issued a receipt and they didn't keep a record, so they asked for payment when I checked out. It all worked out in the end but it was a little bit messy for a moment.

                          Cleanliness, proximity, and the bed was very comfortable. Also, internet access and complimentary computer availability was good.

                          Great location and fantastically comfortable bed.

                          The spa in my 'Spa Deluxe Room' didn't work which was a big disappointment! In future, I would only book at standard room as I didn't find any of the special extras one would expect in a Deluxe room.

                          Relaxed but imformative, professional staff. Well appointed rooms, great location. Quiet rooms

                          Pillows - too high , too hard. We both threw them on the floor and used no pillow.

                          The staff were very friendly and helpful and this is one of my BIGGEST requirements in a hotel.The bed was excellent...sooooo comfortable!!

                          The water could have been a little hotter and the shower head was not the best.

                          Not much other than the rooms were constantly kept clean on a daily basis. Did provide a spare microwave for use due to young family. Majority of Staff were quite pleasant

                          Didn't like having to pay $15 a day to park at the hotel. Due to very little parking in vicinity of the Hotel, Hotel Urban takes full advantage and charges its customers for secure parking. An additional $15 per night. The hotel location is not in a very safe area and you are constantly heckled as soon as you leave the premises. Does not cater for the family with young kids although will try to accommodate if possible. Would definitely look else where in future bookings

                          Comfortable; relaxed; WiFi connection

                          Staff not quite on the ball. Room not always cleaned to satisfaction. Meanness of provision of tea.

                          Facility not match with booking. E.G. lcd tv - no. Room size 20sq m, not even 12 sq m not even a reason sofa you can sit never go to such crap.

                          Very comfortable beds and quite rooms despite loud street below.

                          There was rubbish in the lift which also broke during our stay.

                          The staff were really outstanding in their friendliness and helpfulness. The food was top quality with perfect breakfasts to start the day.

                          Great location near to restaurants, beach. Three tram routes stop a few paces away. No 96 tram only takes about 15 minutes to reach the centre of Melbourne, southern cross - old Parliament Building ($7 aus day ticket). Would consider this hotel for a business trip as an alternative to City locations.

                          St Kilda is very bohemian, but if you like that a great place to stay.

                          Your restaurant was closed. Also there should be attention to detail such as the bedlamp had a spent globe.

                          Was close to the beach and fitzroy st

                          I have travelled all over the world, and for the price I was very disappointed with the quality of the service and the room, especially the spa bath. Online it said they supply luxury bath products. These were not there ( the bath was full of hair! I had to rinse it before using) and when I asked the guy from the front desk very hurriedly gave me 2 face washers and some shampoo and conditioner!
