I've stayed twice over the last 2 months. The Atlantis Hotel is only a few minutes walk from Southern Cross station, making it a perfect location when flying into Melbourne - catch the Skybus in from the airport & simply walk a couple of blocks up the same street.
Restaurants, cafes and shopping are nearby. Business centres and corporate training centres are equally, 2 - 5 minutes walk away.
The rooms themselves are generally clean. The tiles in the bathrooms (in both room I stayed in) could do with a far more intensive clean & throw cushions have a few marks on them suggesting they haven't been washed for quite some time.
Plenty of room for a couple of nights and views over Etihad Stadium and surrounds. Rooms are reasonably quiet.
Business traveller? Make sure you pay on account for business rather than book online. Colleagues were given a very unnecessary runaround because they'd booked online, despite a business account picking up the tab and one us of being on the same account (separate booking and successfully checked in). They weren't permitted to check-in until the account paid and they wouldn't accept a business credit card over the phone. A challenge after 5pm on a Friday!
Breakfast is available in the lobby - buffet style continental and cooked options. Convenient & a reasonable range to choose from.
The location is the definite attraction & being close to public transport - presents lots of options for travellers from out-of-town, interstate or overseas. less
