We have stayed at the El Paso on numerous occasions and the most recent was in a recently refurbished room. I asked for a room away from the road and was in 505 which is up stairs (top floor) and away from traffic noise - which is great as i'm a light sleeper. The new rooms are great - nicely... More

Room was very clean and up on the fifth floor. Enjoyed a light complimentary breakfast in the restaurant next morning with a great view. Starting at 6:20am Sunday morning there was work being done onsite (renovations). Although there were notices posted on-site about this, I was shocked to be woken up by this early morning work, especially so early on... More

Hi Gavvo, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. I hope you enjoyed the new Elevator we installed late last year. It makes staying on the top floor much more enjoyable.

El Paso has recently been renovated to create very stylish rooms with conveniences like USB charging ports and free internet. The rooms are quiet and literally a stones throw from a range of entertainment, fine restaurants and classy cafe's but more importantly the wonderful Hastings River waterfront parks and headwater. My room like most do not have a nice view... More
