Our family of four stayed over while on a city stay. We had a queen spa room that had a divider with queen bed on one side & double fold out on the other & a telly on each side. Big ensuite bathroom(with spa bath) & walk in robe.
Excellent location, walked around the block for dinner at chinatown. Breakfast buffet was amazing & cooked to order as well, so DD & I enjoyed a stack of pancakes. Staff were universally friendly & efficient, but no spare staff for concierge so I couldn't find out about attractions because there was no tourist display & counter staff were always busy with check in/outs.
Heated rooftop pool looked nice, but a bit cold for us!
Verdict: I wouldn't pay full price as it is pretty tired looking upstairs from the lobby, but a package deal with parking & brekky is good value in the CBD.
