I stayed here in March 2013 for a quick business trip.
The hotel is conveniently located about a 5 minute drive from Brisbane International Airport. On your way leaving the airport towards the city, you cant miss it.
The hotel is as you come to expect from a Novotel. The lobby is large and well presented, check in was trouble free. In the lobby there is access to the Catalina Bar & Restaurant as well as a small nook with two Apple Macs to access the internet for free (20 minutes).
I had a king room. The room was very large and more space than you need. There was a large cupboard with a safe, and a mini bar at the entrance. The well fitted bathroom to the right and then the room opens up to the bedroom.
The bathroom was large with a floor level shower, vanity and toilet.
The bedroom had a wall mounted 32inch TV, large king bed, bedside tables, chair, desk and couch. The room lights can be controlled from the bedside table and there are small reading lights fitted to each side of the bed.
The room was very clean and tidy and well presented.
The is a door about midway down the room for access to the room beside. From what I could tell, there are two doors. However this doesn't do much to reduce the noise from the room next door. I could hear their TV and chatter, and was concerned my alarm would wake them as well.
There is a large free carpark across from the Novotel, and next door is a large shopping center with DFO.
The Catalina Bar and Restaurant was great. The food was fantastic. However.. as it is a Novotel, expect expensive beer and food. Average $35-$40 for a main meal and $9 for a beer.
I would stay here again.
