This is a rather garish hotel with an elegant but faux early twentieth century décor in the lobby and public areas.
My actual hotel room seemed too narrow for the large, heavy furniture
A clean room with good fluffy towels and quick room service. Had light meal, but salad was not freshly made and poor for the price.
The problem when you do a boutique hotel, try to be fashionable they look pretty average when the fashion moves on.
Location is near station where my work's situated, so for work it was handy. I would recommend going to stay at a hotel closer up town though as near station's never a very quiet, elegant locale.
There are very close nearby, good restaurants though, We had wonderful Japanese at Hanabishi and Korean at Hwaro is best I've had in Australia.
They also take $100 on the credit card which is kept for a few days after you leave, hmm. Not a good feeling.
On the environment front, they, like all places, like you to reuse yr towels but also have a master switch which turns off the tv and lights which is a win win for hotel's bottom line and environment. I think soap dispensers in rooms etc would be another thing would improve their green image if they are serious. No window openings at all.
Friendly and really helpful but unobtrusive staff,thanx! All 'newish' Australians so not slack on the service front like many of us and a real asset to the hotel.
An interesting place to stay as was a unique place.
