A wonderful production crew put me up here Friday and Saturday night. My room was 321 which over looked the water feature in the middle of the hotel. The balcony was large but not private and there were no table or chairs to sit outside (perhaps because of winter but the weather was very mild).The marina view rooms would be stunning.
The room itself was fantastic with ceiling to floor window, coffee machine (good quality coffee and tea), and the most luxuriously soft bed I have ever slept in with towel swans and gorgeous green orchids! It smelt nice too. This hotel has thoughtful additional touches such as travel adaptor, cotton buds and pads, nail files (!) and hand held makeup mirror.
From what I gather you can have limited free internet (3GB?) in the lobby area, but additional and in room broadband is extra.
Valet parking is available at $35 a night/day. Parking across the road was $2 an hour I think or $1 an hour 8am-6pm Mon-Sat just down Gaunt st heading west (free Sun). There are also plenty of parking areas and buildings nearby.
You need your room key/card to operate the lifts.
Great location and professional, helpful staff. Thankyou!
