Located close to the casino and southbank and a short walk to the exhibition centre. This 32 storey property has 2 lifts so that can be a challange at times. My room needed a good clean as the carpets were pretty dirty. But overall not bad.

Great location, easy to get to and clean, comfortable rooms. Only drawback is that 2 lifts service about 25 floors, so U can have a long wait before a lift arrives.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment however aircon was only in the the living room. The bedrooms were not big at all - just had some walking space around double bed in each bedroom. If travelling by car, arrange for a parking spot because it may get tricky to get one.

The place is nice, but has few issues though. Check in was very slow. Trying to check in on Saturday at 2pm, prime time, only one staff member on and a line of people waiting to check in. The lady was nice, just a very slow process to check in compared to most hotels. It only has two lifts, so it can be hopeless trying to get a lift down at checkout. 10am rolled round and it took us forever to get one down. Waited probably over 15 minutes. We had to press the up button, take the lift up to the top before we could go down. Every lift was packed and people couldn’t go anywhere. Everyone was having the exact same issue. No curtains, only blinds that are transparent in the room. The light gets in from the city at night. The bedroom door has a frosted window too so you never get darkness in your hotel room. Come sunlight, the whole apartment is completely bright due to the transparent blinds and window in the bedroom door. Sleeping-in is almost impossible. Also because of this the room gets quite warm. The AC cools the lounge but it doesn’t make it into the bedroom at all even with the door open. Advertises premium channels, Stan, Netflix, foxtel... does not specify that you must have one of those accounts and log in on the smart tv to be able to watch it. If you don’t have them, no premium channels for you. The place is nice, just needs certain touches and changes to the rooms and procedures to make it a better place.
