We stayed in the new building called The Bank. I am so torn writing this review because the apartment was really good, if a little small, very clean and very well equipped but it was on the 'highway' side of the building and the traffic noise was awful, fine when you are awake, chatting and watching telly but in the early hours of the morning - awful ! I read on here to ask for a high room if you couldn't get on the City side of the building and they put us on the 22nd floor but still noisy. Might be ok if you are from the City and used to traffic noise but seriously pay the bit extra and get a City view room if one is available. The other down side is the that the beds are small, we had a twins and they are the width of a childs bed but longer, however very comfy ! Such good value at $125 or ($135 city view) per night for the 1 bedroom apartment, situated close to Crown Casino. The staff were fantastic, so friendly and efficient when you needed anything. Security is good on the building too which was nice for 2 ladies. A lot was said about the car park in other comments I read and yes it is not great but I did see a few big 4 x 4's parked in there and I managed fine and it is so cheap compared to other places in the area ($10) per night. I would stay again.
