A 6 night stay. I was attending a conference at Crown and found staying here a much better fit for my needs (and ethics) than staying 5km from town. i took taxis (around $20-24 per trip) and there was only a maximum of a 5 minute wait to catch a taxi - in either direction.
I was a little concerned when the taxi pulled up on my arrival on a Friday night because there was a jazz band in full swing, with a full bar and restaurant. Would I be able to sleep with all the noise The room was absolutely quiet-with no noise leak. I stayed in one of 2 rooms on the second floor.
The bed is excellent -comfortable, very good linen and is really "KING sized". The bathroom not only looked great it was large and very functional. The towels are large. The entertainment system included HDMI inputs for portable devices as well as having access to Apple TV. More than adequate storage for clothing.
Though the decor was far from minimalist it was not offensive. There were no funny cleaning smells. A Nescafe pod machine and fresh milk is provided. The bar-fridge was compete with all the usual suspects and the reception staff didn't bat an eye-lid when I asked for the alcohol to be removed from the room.
I ate bar food twice in the hotel and it was very good. The barman was knowledgeable and mixed a very interesting martini. The crowd was a upmarket and the prices average. The bar scene seemed to be full-on when I returned from the conference in the late evening. Though I only ate breakfast once in the hotel. It was alacarte and hence a reasonable price and one wasn't tempted to over eat. If you're in a rush in the morning there's a very popular coffee cart - operated by the hotel.
There's very good reason the hotel provides a set of scales in the room!
There are number of interesting bars and restaurants close by if one didn't want to eat dinner every night in the hotel.
Staff attentive, helpful and friendly.
I unreservedly recommend this hotel. The only reason I don't give excellent is purely one of personal taste in relation to the decor - and I admit I'm probably being a little unfair.
