We arrived Saturday morning after an early flight. The hotel is a short walk uphill from Roma St station, as long as you use the correct exit (exit via Roma St Parklands). The room was understandably not available at such an early hour (approx 9:30am) but we were able to leave our bags. Reception staff also offered to give us a call as soon as a room was available, which was a nice touch.
There is a variety of perfumes & colognes on the reception counter to use, which is handy to freshen up when you are passing through. As is a large bowl of apples, and in the lobby was some water & iced tea (I think?). The lobby is dressed in a whimsical way, with a few different colour schemes for the seating. Overall a comfortable place to wait in.
The room was on the fifth floor with a balcony to the north did not have a great view, as it looked out over Brisbane suburbs rather than the parklands. The huge king size bed was very comfortable when sharing the bed with a restless sleeper. The roomy bathroom has a large-ish shower, big enough that you don't bump into any of the walls while showering. The TV was a little small for the room size, as when lying in bed the screen looks small (and has terrible sound quality).
The location of the hotel is fantastic, just a quick 10 minute walk downhill to Brisbane CBD and Queen St mall. Not much further to the river and the free ferry.
Our package included breakfast, which can either be ordered from Room Service or eaten buffet style in the cafe in the lobby. The buffet breakfast was well catered and frequently topped up so you won't go hungry! A Nespresso machine & T2 Tea are also available.
I would definitely stay again in Brisbane.
