Cleanliness and location - if you're into museums and galleries, or if you're there for a function at the Convention Centre.
Amenities aren't very customer-oriented - No "Do Not Disturb" or "Don't Clean Room" sign. Also no sign to indicate where the lift is situated.
Good location on the Southbank area: 10 mins walk to Queen St / city centre via footbridge, 5 min walk to the Convention Centre and train/bus station. Friendly enough staff but feels that some things aren't as customer-focused as should be e.g. placement of signage or directions. The lift is in the middle of the hallway, sandwiched between rooms but there aren't any signs indicating such. The only direction you get is from the reception and if you didn't pay attention, you'll have to walk back to the office (to ask again). Also no "Do Not Disturb" sign and doors slam quite loudly - can hear the housekeepers knocking on neighbouring doors. Overall, an OK hotel - nothing spectacular; feels more of a 3* at best rather than 4*.
Highly recommend the night cruise/city tour especially on your first day or so - excellent overview of Brisbane.
