I have never written a hotel review before but after the wonderful experience at the Refinery I felt compelled to do so. I am picky and my wife's says I have OCD so bear that in mind.
First the hotel is brand new prohibition era style coupled with modern chic. I really liked the interior design. The room was great and appreciated the in room art work and modern features like decent iPod docks and plasma tv, comfy bed and just all round great style.
Second thing I loved was that its actually a very cool place to be, great rooftop and lobby bars. The attached restaurant offers a wonderful selection and when my wife and I visited it was buzzing.
Third and best thing was the staff....each and every person was so friendly in a genuine and helpful way, particularly the lobby bar tender who's knowledge of James Bond is only surpassed by his cocktail making ability. I really cannot say enough.
Overall this was a great experience and I left feeling like I wanted to give everyone a big hug and say "Thanks!" for making my stay over the past 7 days such a great experience.
