I've read other reviews that expressed disappointment over the size of the rooms. Yes, the standard rooms are small but I've stayed in smaller (mainly in Europe). Plus, I've stayed here before so knew pretty much what I was going to get.
That said, I like this hotel. The service is very good, the decor is modern and elegant, the rooms are well equipped; and if you're in Brisbane to work, socialise etc and wont be in the room much, do you really need a big room?
It's a short walk from central station, so it's a good choice if you're catching the AirTrain. It's a short walk into the city, to riverside etc, but pretty quiet and tucked away a little, so I think the location is good.
The restaurant/bar downstairs is great. I really like having a beer outside here, and breakfast is good too.
In terms of the room, a standard is fine for a single or maybe a couple. There is no seating, just the bed. The mini bar has a small but good selection, and the prices are reasonable. Tea and coffee is a cut above the usual, with T2 and Robert Timms sachets - no Liptons or International Roast here! There is an ironing board and space to hang up clothes. There's an iPod docking state which is great, and something more hotels should offer. Free wifi was good and it worked without problems.
The shower is great - the shower head is a very powerful rain shower one, but it's attached to the wall not the ceiling which is great if you don't want to get your hair wet. Toiletries ok, nothing special. No shower cap, which was a bit annoying.
