We decided to combine a business trip with a few nights relaxation and take in The Lion King. Unfortunately the hotel where the business end of our trip was hosted was fully booked out, so we needed alternatives. Enter the Meriton on Campbell Street. Quite reasonably priced compared to our convention hotel, beautifully appointed spacious rooms, and great facilities like the indoor pool.
We had a studio apartment on the 12th floor, just down the corridor from the pool. While "studio" conjures up images of small, pokey places, our room was quite the opposite. And it had everything you would need for an extended stay. Small kitchen, full size refrigerator, washer and drier, and a shower that didn't make you feel you were standing in a fine mist.
The Meriton was ideally placed for us too. Just across the road was the Capitol Theatre and tht Lion King. George street was on the corner with Chinatown just across the road. In the opposite direction was the small area that's come to be known as Thai Town, with great and cheap restaurants. One small block away was the light rail to the Fishermens Markets, and another block had you at Central Station. Free 555 bus from Circular Quay to Central stopped right outside the building. So location was fantastic.
Staff were very helpful, and they remembered you. You'd go out somewhere after asking for advice, and they would ask how you went on your return.
The Meriton was a great find, and we've come to expect great things from their properties after staying in a couple of others. They didn't disappoint. And the best part was that our room was twice as good as the one we had at our convention hotel, and considerably cheaper. Only thing we missed was a view.
