Location wise, this hotel is well located, in the centre of the city, so is close to shops and places to eat. That said, the city of Canberra is dull after hours, as the shopping hours are short compared to say Melbourne and Sydney. However, the hotel is located in the middle of most attractions of Canberra, so most are only a short drive away.
The room we were given was very good, upgraded to a suite due to the assigned room not being ready at check in. The room was clean and modern. The room not being ready at 5pm was perhaps the only bad experience, and the way it was handled was professional, no lengthy waiting, just upgrade to available room.
The breakfast offering was perhaps a little "light-on" for range, but some other things like omelettes or fried eggs could be requested.
Was not a fan of the indoor heated pool, as it was too noisy and smelled to much of chlorine as would be expected in an indoor pool.
The car park charges of $18 per day I thought were excessive, as there is little option for guests to park elsewhere, and a car is almost essential to see Canberra.
