This is a 5 star hotel with price tag to match. But the size of the rooms and bathroom, plus lovely staff made it worthwhile.
Check in staff were friendly and quick. The concierges I encountered were all friendly and courteous. Cleaning staff and room service staff were all equally friendly too.
The room was big and the King bed was so comfy. Had a fantastic night's sleep.
The bathroom/walk in wardrobe was huge and I love big bathrooms! Great toiletries and a tv if you wanted to watch from the bath.
The shower room plus spa bath room set up was interesting though. Leaving the remote control for the bathroom tv on the bath ledge was a bit odd considering you would splash water all over the shower room when you used the shower.
Only other downside I could think of was that the brown colour scheme used throughout the room and hotel was a bit dated in my eyes.
But that's being picky.
I used the gym facilities and although it was a smallish room it was totally adequate. The pool area looked great.
Location was good too being close to the CBD but even better is that it's close to Fitzroy which is a great alternate place to eat and shop. Try Huxtable on Smith street for a cool restaurant in that area.
I paid a non refundable sale rate which was similar in price to lesser hotels so it wasn't as pricey as I thought it would be. With this in mind I recommend it.
