Stayed for 2 nights on their opening special. This was extremely good value for money and was not disturbed but the current construction.
The rooms are well presented and clean but they are a little cramped, (FYI - Meriton Adelaide St has a better layout). I.e. you don't even have room to do a pushup in the lounge/kitchen area. Only the entrance hallway allows this.
The only real disappointment was the bed and pillows. Hotel rule 101 says you should have one big pillow and one little pillow but instead you have 4 massive (thick) pillows. I asked at reception for smaller pillows but was told you only stock the one size. In addition, your king sized bed (2 singles joined together) was rather uncomfortable at the join. This led to poor quality sleep.
The pool is one of the better hotel pools I have seen but the gym area needs some free weights. The current selection of weights only goes from 2-10kg which is nothing and could be improved.
I will stay here again but please to improve people's sleep stock 2 different sized pillows and invest in a better mattress cover so the join in the beds (on your "king sized beds" is less obvious and intrusive during sleep.
Your big plus is the free wifi and foxtel (sports channels).
