Booked a great deal for the weekend in this hotel from lastminute.com and got a room on the 7th floor for around $80AU per night.
Visited in May 2012.
The room had a king size bed and I read they are "dream beds". The bed definitely was comfortable and above average for a hotel. The pillows were a bit too soft and bulky for my liking though.
No windows or balcony but a bit of natural light does come through from high above where a window would be.
Ensuite and shower was good. Everything was modern.
I didn't use the mini bar or the 24 hour room service but having that available 24/7 is great. Being 20 seconds from the Casino and Denny's also means you have options 24/7.
The location was brilliant. 20 second walk to the Casino and 5-10 minutes to the harbour ferry terminal, Airport bus stop and the Viaduct region.
Looked to be a very good hotel for a business stay as well.
Free wi-fi in lobby was still decent on the 7th floor and across the road outside the casino!
TV had pay per view movies available. Normal stations and both sports channels free of charge as well.
For the price (which is probably half of the standard rate) I loved it. A traveller on a budget might find it a bit pricey but if you can get a decent deal, i strongly recommend this hotel.
Also said to have a gym available but i think its off site somewhere and possibly a pool. I never used these but its another handy extra.
Staff were helpful, friendly and seemingly there 24/7.
