The room was clean well laid out and spacious. It unusual for a hotel of this type not to have a pool. The hot breakfast buffet at $28 does not include barista coffee it only includes the cheap instant coffee. Better to go across the road and to Machiato and buy your breakfast and coffee their better value and better taste.

The location was perfect as we wanted to eat in and around Chinatown, access the light rail, with easy walk to the city centre. The desk staff and housekeepers were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately the valet parking let down the experience. First, the instructions on where to go on arrival were vague so we found ourselves very lost, many levels underground. During our stay we needed to get something from the car and, again, the instructions on how to get down to the car were vague, and we found ourselves lost again. Then on leaving we waited and waited to be let out past the boom gates. A useful tip from another guest's review: if using cash, ask for a receipt for the security deposit, and one for payment of parking.
