Sebel Albert Park, Melbourne

Booked a room with two Queen beds for the Digital Parents Conference for just under $200 per night. No breakfast included, but that’s what the fruit I snaffled from the plane and lunch buffets was for! (Fifth floor view) After an initial stuff up, where we were put into a room with just one king…
