This hotel gets an excellent rating because of Graham at the Concierge. He goes above and beyond every step of the way. I want to go so far as to say he is the best concierge I have ever worked with and I ask a lot of my concierges. I start emailing them as soon as I book my hotel (sometimes sooner!)
The hotel is very modern, very new. In a complex with restaurants and shopping. The restaurants were always hopping and there was a great coffee shop not too far away that I liked called Campos (recommended by Graham.) It is very close to all the nightlife which is good because when you are tired at the end of the day, you can still easily go out. The location is however, far from all the sightseeing.
The rooms are very small but very clean and new. There is a dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer! Oh my! We did not use any of these but it was still cool to have.
The rooftop is lovely, though it was winter, I dipped my feet in the pool and lounged upstairs one morning.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to go out late every night but probably not a great location for people that are just in Brisbane for sightseeing.
