Stayed 2 nights over a weekend with my partner & another couple. Was on level 14, room 1410. Room is quite quirky and designed nicely with neat & trendy decor. You'll either like the paintings in the rooms or not (every room has paintings from Blackman). I found some of them a bit eerie.
The beds and pillows are truly amazing! Very soft & fluffy.
Rooms are not big though. However, I think it depends which room the hotel assigns you. The other couple that stayed at the hotel got a room that was bigger & also had a king bed (room 1302). That was probably the most disappointing part of the stay as the room I stayed in had a double bed and not a king. Bathroom is also on the small side.
Location is good, about a 10 min taxi or tram ride to city. Also close by to chapel st.
My tip is try stay at hotel when they have specials. We booked about 2 months in advanced & got a 40% discount on wotif which included late check out at 12pm!
