I stayed in a studio room for a few nights. It's comfortable and clean, no frills, innofensive hotel deisgned for the business traveller. Tourists are left very much to their own devices, as there is no tourist information in the room, in fact very little information even about the hotel facilities! Studio has a kitchenette but no laundry facilities (there is a space for a machine in the bathroom but it's bare!). The studio is a decent size - get a room on a high floor, facing the street.
They still live in the past. There is no digital television (only analogue channels). There is Foxtel but clearly hotels still think "business travel" is a male occupation as there are 3 sports channels, a news channel and Discovery. There is nowhere to plug in your ipod/mp3 player and no wifi (very expensive broadband). The location is convenient for the convention centre end of town and the street is quiet.
For the price I would probably try somewhere else with more services/facilities who make more of an effort
