    So I have the points for any of the three, and I was wondering what people would recommend.

    Its going to be for a 3 night weekend in the early australian fall, and I am debating. I will be traveling with my wife and 6month old son. Would like to be able to have easy visit to friends of my wife in the South East burbs.

    Will be Hilton Diamond and IHG Platinum (NOT an Ambassador), and SPG Dirt.


    Thanks all!

    when I stayed in Melbourne last year it was at the Crowne Plaza because of its close proximity to the Exhibition Centre and I regretted it as the IC Rialto is far nicer

    this might be my favorite IC anywhere though some people do not like it

    if you are staying on points, you would not likely get Ambassador benefits anyhow

    If your situation changes where you get some Hyatt points, please note that both Hyatts in Melbourne are increasing their point-prices for bookings made on/ after January 7.
