Stayed here 1 night during the GP weekend. Disappointed room couldn't be arranged before 2pm but at least was given the chance to freshen up in the fitness centre. The gym is minimalist but lap pool is nice if a little chilly.
Asked for a newspaper but was told "We don't deliver newspapers here but you can read newspapers in the lobby". All staff interactions during my stay were very cold & robotic. I don't know whether this is a simply a training issue or if the staff don't care. Also no free internet whatsoever in the lobby - $6 per hour!
Rooms are very modern and a decent size but the handy CBD location means views of surrounding buildings only. The kitchen facilities would be useful for a longer stay & the big screen TV & iPod dock are good. Refreshing to find bar fridge empty for a change. Bed is average & bathroom a bit small plus lacking in amenities. Also the room safe kept saying "Low Battery" which I reported on checkout.
Overall the rooms are 4 star standard but let down badly by 1 star service. I would only consider staying again if there was a super sale but certainly not worth these premium rates which would ensure far superior 5 star hotels.
