This is a nice little hotel, and suited my needs on a week-long business trip.
I had a "demi suite", which means a small round table, a cooker and a sink on a little elevated area with an ornate balustrade separating it from the bed area. Everything is ornate in this place: a paint-effect freak has been let loose, and no surface has been allowed to exist in its natural state -other than the TV, which was mercifully free of marbling, contrasts or distressed patinas.
The air con is very noisy. So were the people in the room above me- I don't usually notice these things, but their footsteps were quite loud and strange- couldn't tell if it was children running round the bed, or a dog. Or possibly children riding a dog around the bed.
I liked two things about this hotel: firstly, the artwork has been chosen by a genuine human, and is beguilingly weird and eclectic: an Erte print by the lift, a red daub of someone (something?) dangling from a tree in the corridor, and a gilt-framed oil of a winter tree in my room. I like it.
The second good thing is the coffee maker, which processes (free) pods of filter coffee through various hatches, elements and LEDs to make great coffee in a few seconds.
Two things I didn't like: firstly, $36 for guest parking each day is too much. Henry in the lot round the corner charges $16. Secondly, they burn joss-sticks throughout the public areas, which creates a sickly stink.
It's not corporate, the staff are friendly, and there are great views from the roof.
