Spent over a week here on business.
The room allocated (1619) was a very good size, and very comfortable.
Room itself: Large with plenty of space, king size very comfortable :-), and after recovering from the jet lag had no problems with 8 hours a night!!!!
Airconditioning - I know there is supposed to be some, but it didn't seem to make a difference where I put the thermostat, it stayed the same comfortable level.
There is a large window that lets in an acceptable amount of light, but there is no real view, unless you like the view of a car park! Look around the "corner" and there is a bit of skyline.
Bathroom: Large with a wetroom area, I think also caters for disabled guests. There isn't a huge amount of space or shelving near the sink to take toiletries, as it is only really big enough for one. But still acceptable.
Restaurant: I had breakfast here each day and the initial service to get you to the seat was good, however, they are not very proactive when it comes to serving more coffee. More suited to a relaxed event rather than a quick turnaround.
Café: Had a meeting in the café section and it took a long time to get any service for coffee, and even after finding someone to serve us, they did need some reminding to actually provide the drinks.
The reset of the staff from concierge and reception staff were very good, helpful and cheerful.
Overall a good hotel, though somewhat let down a bit my the level of service in the restaurant/café.
Location: Very close to the Skytower (<5 minutes walk) and the harbour area for either the ferries to the islands, or the cafes/restaurants (about 10-15 minutes walk).
Would I stay here again? Yes I would.
