On arriving at the hotel very early I was, at first, a little disappointed that my reservation was not immediately found...I had to provide my paperwork (this is first time this has ever happened to me!). The staff member explained that since I had made the reservation just the night before through the central reservation system that it had not transferred across to the hotel, she apologised and proceeded to efficiently check me in and offering an upgrade to a river view. I was very pleased with how this issue was resolved in a professional manner and appreciated the upgrade to a lovely room with a beautiful view over the Brisbane River.
The room was very large and tastefully furnished as was the bathroom with a separate walkin shower. The king bed was very comfortable with great pillows. Lovely simple touch (other hotels could learn to copy this!) was a complementary bottle of water. Being a Marriott Rewards member provided free WIFI in the room (not sure if otherwise there is a charge),
The public areas of the hotel are lovely with pleasant outdoor area overlooking the river. There is a lovely library area in the lobby where a coffee or drink can be enjoyed if the bar area is too busy. The lobby area is bright and open with some beautiful art works.
Had dinner in the restaurant, Miotion Bar and Grill where the service was excellent. The menu had good variety and well priced...we explained that we (a party of 7!!) were off to the Ballet so time was of the essence and the waiter, Bailey, assured this would not be a problem. We all enjoyed our meals and were particularly impressed by Bailey`s service...and we were pleasantly surprised when we returned for coffee at the end of our evening to find him to our waiter again!
My room rate included buffet breakfast...could not do it justice...so much choice both cold and hot food in abundance with the offer to also have specially prepared dishes...I enjoyed the blueberry pancakes.
Definitely would return to this hotel, especially if a similar great rate with breakfast included was available. The hotel has a great location with easy access to the riverside walk and only a short walk to the main shopping strip, yet away from the noise!
