We had arrived in Brisbane by train and loved the easy access to the hotel from the station. It was particularly good for us the following morning, had an early flight out of Brisbane International and very happy to go from the Hotel to the Airport by train in just over 20 minutes.
Check-in was fast and efficient and we appreciated both the room upgrade and that we could get into our room earlier than expected. Our bags were quickly delivered by the friendliest staff member (name escapes me), he had a great chat to us about things to do in Brisbane and was so helpful with the queries we had. We were on a higher floor, view not so exciting but our room was very comfortable with quality fittings and a restful colour scheme. Liked our coffee machine and utilised this well. No free Wi-Fi in the room was disappointing.
Didn't get the opportunity to try the restaurants but did try Harlequin Jack Bar but disappointed as no real atmosphere when we were there but had a couple of drinks all the same. Had to leave too early the next day to try breakfast.
I still find it difficult to comprehend the very expensive prices of our five star hotels in Australia compared to 5 star in Asia where we stay regularly but this stay was very comfortable and for us using our Advantage Plus bonus stay made it much easier on the pocket. If travelling on to the Airport, the hotel does have train tickets available to guests at a discounted rate which we really appreciated.
