Melbourne apartment choices

My family of 4 are visiting Melbourne for the first time and spending 4 nights over the New Year in the city. We want to use the apartment as the base to see the city and outskirts along the coast.
I am facing the following three choices of 2-bedroom serviced apartments in Melbourne. The costs are identical and I was wondering if the experts on this forum have any advice regarding which location of the apartment is the best choice or that I should be indifferent.
1. Southbank - 173 and 183 City Road, close to Melbourne Exhibition Center
2. Southbank - 22, 88 & 100 Kavanagh St, just a short walk to St Kilda Rd & Victorian Arts Centre
3. City CBD - 668 Bourke Street, close to Crown Casino, Spencer St Station and Telstra Dome

The Southbank apartments at 22 Kavanagh st are in the best location, but really all of these choices are okay. None of them are right in the heart, but all are within an easy 10 minute walk of main attractions.

Hi byr
I agree with MaryK, these apartments are all OK. The Bourke St apartment has the advantage of having a tram stop right outside the door and also of being within 50 to 100 metres (actually you only need to cross the road) of the Airport Bus arrival and departure point. (I think that several tour busses also leave from this depot).
