Got a great deal on this hotel through a daily deal website so although I felt the hotel needs improvement for the $95 rate, I can't complain. The location of the hotel is quite confusing with one way streets etc but eventually we managed to find reception and got directed to the car park. Check in was a little vague and I felt perhaps the staff were all new and still getting used to having guests in the hotel. The hotel felt like it is in a pre-opening stage (there is a crane still on the roof). We were allocated Level 4 which had very limited views. There are floor to ceiling glass windows so we were constantly pulling blinds down if you didn't want the neighbours looking in. Even the toilet sits beside a clear glass window so every time someone used the bathroom the blinds were lowered. We liked that we could open windows for fresh air. The layout of our room was quite odd. It was a very long hallway which made me quite uncomfortable throughout the night as I could not see if anyone was entering the room. The door had a double lock but no latch. The appliances are mostly cheap but most seemed to work ok, Take your own hairdryer as one supplied is a little travel dryer and the iron has no steam function and very poor quality. The bed was comfortable and air conditioner worked ok once we got the setting right. The Foxtel was annoying as you surf through all the channels but only a few work. Another strange feature was there are blinds and curtains in the lounge, but the end of the curtain hangs only a very small distance from the stove top which I would have though would not be allowed. We were there for 2 nights only but over that time we must have heard the fire engines go past at least 7 times. We worked out that the fire station was up around the corner and it all made sense. We did try and sleep with the windows in the bedroom open for fresh air but had to close them and turn the AC on due to the traffic noise. The car parking at the hotel is $35 per night. The location of the hotel allows you to walk to the city or Fortitude Valley in around 10 mins and we barely used the car. There is no mini bar or food on site as yet but there are a couple of bars/restaurants close by. There a few other things like the wardrobe design could be an issue if you are short and trying to hang shirts on those hangers that aren't removable. The room was very clean and all furnishings were like new. As mentioned already, I got a good rate so felt like I got what I paid for but I probably wouldn't stay again at the standard rates.
