Hotel is located just one block from Queen St. which is a major street for shopping, is like 2 blocks from the sky tower. Rooms are just ok, little small, there is some street noise, staff is friendly. Airport bus stop is very close.

Probably ok. As already mentioned, I would check with the hotel. With Skype, I made a lot of phone calls to AUS and NZ from the States before my trip to ask questions or verify things. Happy Traveling! You'll have a great... More
