Lovely hotel which I'd been told had recently had undergone an $8m Refurbishment.
You could really tell, as appeared very clean and modern.
We stayed here for 4 nights in a City View Guest Room. Lovely room with a massive king size bed! Bathroom clean and modern with a very large walk in shower.
All the things you could ever need in your room for a comfortable stay. Even His 'n' hers bathrobes.
Had buffet breakfast daily. Food very vice and plenty of variety.
Staff were really friendly and went out of their way to help. Hotel manager invited us join him for complimentary drinks and nibbles on our first night!
Hotel is situated on on the edge of a Tree-Lined Boulevard which leads you down into Federation square. Not 'out of the way' like some people say. Nice walk into the city, or a 5-10 minute tram ride (tram stop is a 1 minute walk from hotel)
You can buy a tourist pack at the tourist info centre in Federation square, which incldes a 'Myki' card which enables you to travel around the city on the trams and buses. We found this very helpful. and quite cheap. If you need a taxi, they are right outside the hotel.
Because it's not right in the city it's more peaceful, with next to no traffic noise.
Would highly recommend this hotel.
We are already planning to go back again next year for our 10th wedding anniversary on valentines day!
