I stayed in this hotel for a conference trip in July. I found the location very convenient, although I have read other reviewers that were not happy with the distance they needed to travel to get anywhere. It is not in the 'centre' of the CBD - you will need to walk about 15-30 minutes to get to the good eating areas - but I did not see this as any great problem. You are also about 5 minutes from Southern Cross station, where the Skybus from the airport stops, which is extremely convenient for transfers.
The hotel itself was very nice - biggish room with a nice comfortable bed. There is a small gym and pool downstairs that you can use for no additional cost, which I found great. I also found the staff were very helpful and friendly.
I did get a very good rate on my room, about $70 a night, but I consider it extremely good value for that price and would have been happy to pay a bit more. Great stay overall!
