This was my second stay at this property, a few years after the first. Most things hadn't changed about the place. Staff friendly, lobby looked good, location still has it's good and bad points (though the northern end of the CBD is beginning to liven up a little bit on weekends).
However, some of the things that hadn't changed were also a problem. My room was a near carbon copy of the first time I stayed. Only this time, it showed that it'd been 3 maybe 4 years since my last stay. Plenty of scuff marks on walls and fixtures, a few broken bits here and there, and some odd stains in the carpet.
The bed was big, and a genuine King (not 2 singles shoved together). But it was far too soft for my liking, and the pillows were a bit of a mish-mash.
The bathroom was very good, it seemed to have a renovation at some stage, and was quite roomy. The bath was a nice touch. Noise was nearly non-existent (though I was on an upper floor) and the knockout blinds were very effective. I might add though, I could hear the rain, as it was very heavy. I quite enjoyed opening the blind to see sheets of rain coming down, knowing I didn't have to venture in to it for some time.
I didn't use many of the hotel facilities, only really there to sleep. I thought about breakfast, but at nearly $40 for the buffet I passed.
I guess, what Im trying to say is that's a 5 star property, with some 4 star rooms. That said, if you shop around you can get a very good price on those rooms, so it's not really 5 star pricing. In fact, this hotel was cheaper than many 4 star hotels on that same weekend. Win for me!
Perhaps I'm being too harsh. It deserves about 3.5 stars/5 for my stay.
