The difficulty we have is in comparing this to a typical Australian hotel experience, rather than one in the US with which we are more familiar. We are longtime Hilton fans and try to stay in their hotels whenever we travel. We had three nights here, and the room was comfortable and well-appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffet was really pretty good. By US standards the room was rather pricey, but probably not too bad compared to similar standard hotels in a prime location such as the Esplanade.The foyer was rather odd, not much seating and rather stark. The location, however, can't be beat.
