Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during a conference. I found it very comfortable, the rooms had been upgraded and looked good, the bed was very comfortable and the rooms quiet. All the controls (lighting etc) were straightforward and worked as they should.
The shower was all style over substance - regardless of how you showered, the floor was soaked - at least I wasn't the one cleaning up each day.
I was in room 316 overlooking the park. Ask for a room with a park view otherwise you are left staring at an officeblock and not a very interesting one at that.
Everyone I dealt with was very friendly and the service was really good.
The bar and restaurant were pleasant, the buffet breakfast had the usual choices and was fresh. Room service meals are very expensive for the quality. I had 3 room service meals and they weren't worth what I paid for them.
There is a tram stop outside the hotel and the city is a 20-30 min walk away. Either way you are close to everything. There's a 7/11 convenience store across the road. I would happily stay here again and recommend it to anyone.
