Thank you for our guest review, it is appreciated.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and the room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom was also very clean and had a large shower. Given the essence is located in the suburbs I thought parking for $20 a night was over priced as we were staying five nights. Some things that would improve our overall stay are: - there are no laundry facilities in the room or in the hotel - there is a lovely coffee/shop cafe below however you can’t get a coffee after 1pm and the essence had a level 5 lounge (lovely idea) but no nespresso coffee machine in it which would have been handy given everything in Brisbane shuts so early! - the room was never tidied even though we hung the please tidy my room sign on the door to our suite so the bed never got made, rubbish was not taken out and to get clean or extra towels or toilet paper you can only in contact with house keeping between 9am-12pm. Overall we had a lovely stay and would definitely stay there again.

Extremely nice and helpful front desk staff. After discussing how we travel from the country and always require parking, which this property doesn't include in the room price, the lady offered to amend the parking rate and offered a better parking spot for a large four wheel drive. Property is always very clean and well presented.
