If location is what you're after, then this is the place for you. It's in the heart of South Bank and next to the convention centre if you're in town for conferences. It's also a nice walk to Queen Street Mall too, about 15 minutes give and take.
Otherwise, the hotel was a letdown. Ordered room service one night for dinner. Had the Caesar salad and fish and chips. Caesar salad for A$20 was the most pathetic I ever had. Measly portion and very amateurish in the way it was done. Fish and chips, A$28, was expensive. Was expecting the portion to be bigger and chips to be served but had fries instead. Not sure if it was a stand-in chef doing the food on that night. I asked for a bread basket but they say bread basket isn't available. If you're okay with walking, there's better cafe and restaurant options in West End which is behind the hotel. Was about 10-15 minutes walk.
Not sure if the air-con was supposed to work this way, churning out warm air at night even though I had set it to the coolest level.
The bathroom didn't provide glasses for brushing and rinsing which I found to be odd since there is a little notice on the sink to say the hotel supports water conservation.
