We stayed at the apartment for Grand Prix weekend. Usually, we stay at one of the Crowne Casino properties, however we invited more people to the trip, which meant an apartment was more economical. Having stayed mostly at 4-5 star hotels, I was worried about the standard.
It was surprising how good this place was. Clean and simple decor with plenty of space in both the 2 bedrooms. We had a baby cot in the master bedroom and still had room to move. Enormous lounge area. I really liked the kitchen!
The building was secure with a concierge until 8pm (I think from memory). Short stroll to the Crowne with all the restaurants / entertainment you need.
The only bad thing I can say about this place was the individual apartment door access. I've never stayed in a hotel / apartment where there was no dead lock. Everytime you get into your apartment, you have to put your key in the door knob and basically lock yourself in.
Overall, a great experience. During the Grand Prix weekend, expect to hear all the noise from Albert Park (we didn't mind).
PS/ Avoid the convenience store downstairs, as it is overpriced, more so compared to other convenience stores in Sydney.
