We had a balcony room - very spacious - King bed, separate lounge area (with a balcony), large bathroom including large bath and separate shower, and a separate WC. Good toiletries in large bottles and those of us with reading glasses can distinguish them. There are harbour glimpses from the balcony.
The hotel is located toward the harbour and Canada Place, slightly out of the main down town area, but close enough to walk.
The hotel restaurant (Prestons) seemed more like a bar/grill than a classic restaurant. There is no separate lounge area. However, this is not an issue as there are a range of good restaurant options within an easy 500/600 metre walk (I'd suggest heading up towards Thurlow St), and for breakfast there are numerous options within a block or two (I'd suggest Moo Pennies or Cafe Artigiano on the first corner).
The hotel has a pool and gym but I didn't use them.
There is free WiFi, but we found it very slow. There are a couple of PCs in the business centre on the 3rd Floor - but be aware that I was not the only guest that difficulty finding the Business Centre and you need your hotel room key to access it.
Overall a very good hotel.
