I stayed four nights here with a friend in a twin share room 404. The room was comfortable for two people and we appreciated the ability to get fresh air into the room via the balcony doors. The daily servicing was very basic, they left the room as is (no tidying, removing papers etc) but changed the linen and towels. Twice in four days the kitchen and mini bar amenities were not refreshed. A quick call to reception rectified the matter but in a 5 star hotel, should you have to call?? Those basic things make the difference - no one wants to feel like just because they aren't in the penthouse or a larger suite they just get basic service.
The ladies on front desk were friendly and very helpful with trams and getting around, the men were more business like and didn't go out of there way as much as the ladies did. The hotel is handily right across from a tram stop and we were able to get everywhere we wanted on the trams quick and easy.
The beds and pillows - amazing. The mini bar prices are not sky high but reasonable. Room service was super quick but uninspiring food (better off visiting the cafe or restaurant downstairs) plus had a $5 order charge on top. The artwork and atmosphere create a fantastic vibe that will keep many visitors coming back for more.
