Guests seeking spacious accommodations in buzzy South Yarra would be wise to choose this MGallery by Sofitel property on shop-lined Chapel Street. The smallest of its 111 guest rooms start at a roomy 410 square feet and feature plush king beds, black marble bathrooms, and smart TVs, while its largest split-level suites run nearly quadruple in size. One has its own private spa bath and sauna, while another has a dining table large enough for seating 10 and a baby grand piano in the living room. The contemporary-chic decor includes a bold color palette of hot pink, turquoise, and lime green, with decorative elements that include gray-and-black leaf decals. After a day spent shopping in the nearby boutiques, guests can unwind on one of the many plush lounge chairs surrounding the pool, covered in a retractable roof that opens during warm weather. The lobby-level SOBar serves a wide selection of international beers and small bites that include crisp pork scratchings.
