This is another one of those dark hotels where you cant find things if you drop them and need to look carefully on check out. Dark doesn't do it for me. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I was pleased to be able to open a window for fresh air. The sink areas have no space to set out your toiletries owing to a poor design. Also I could not find a way to turn on a light in the bathroom area without turning on the main room lights. It was handy to have a direct USB charging outlet in the wall. The lobby features eclectic music some of which surprised me such as "Kelly Watch The Stars". But the scented lobby air made me sneeze and smelled a bit like pot. Direct access to the casino shopping areas was nice and there are many restaurants. Just across the street in one direction is a supermarket (Coles) and in the other direction are several nice little restaurants. The harbor is about a 5 minute walk and the convention center is about 8 minutes, so overall this is a well-situated hotel. Internet is too expensive. Note that everything for sale in the room is wired to sensors so for example, if you pick up the lovemaking kit to read the label (it's funny!) you will be promptly billed. Watch your account!
