The neat part about the MGallery idea (and it's not the name that's neat) is that each hotel is somehow a bit special--for example, it's a historical building or has particularly sophisticated design. The Grand Hotel in Melbourne definitely fits under the historical category, sitting in a heritage-listed building that's been at the center of Melbourne's development over the past 120 years.
As for the hotel itself: well, it comes in at number 9 on the TripAdvisor popularity index, and many people have nice things to say. But there are regularly a few complaints about the décor, probably because the kind of interior that fits into a historical building like this just won't suit everyone. But we'll wait to see if the MGallery labeling gets any significant changes happening.
