Great location for a brief stay in Brisbane city, close to great restaurants and shopping.
We chose this hotel based on recent Trip Advisor reviews and generally, we were pretty pleased with the room and its amenities (despite the fact that our views from the bedroom and living room were at office blocks a stone's throw away). The room was tastefully appointed, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed.
Our only gripe quite frankly was the front desk staff who seemed quite non-plussed that we had just arrived (mid-morning) in the midddle of a huge rain storm and were soaked. We were both dripping on the floor of the hotel lobby, our clothes were plastered to us and we were disappointed that we had to ask for towels and somewhere to change and dry off. The Staff seemed more concerned about our early arrival even though we had advised by email several weeks earlier that we would be coming in mid-morning and just needed somewhere to leave our bags. We also noted, dissapointingly, that each time we came in or left the hotel, via the lobby, that nobody at the front desk looked up to say "Hi", or perhpas enquired how our day had been. We tried saying hello on our way in or out but Staff at the front desk kept their heads down. As accommodation providers ourselves we know that it costs nothing to be friendly but goes along way towards making guests feel welcome.
