Convenient Hotel in CBD

Fast and easy booking experience, despite we mentioned being 3 guests in the room, it wasn’t set up with the proper amount of towels, they could have pay a bit more atention to details when reservation is done and guests are checking in. Personnel staff at valet parking very attentive and helpful, Tommy great asset to the team. We stayed on room 1740 , only dissapointed issue was the horrible smell at the hall outside our room .

Comfortable and Convenient

We stayed overnight during the ASSCA Conference. My husband has severe arthritis, so we requested and were given an accessible room with a seat in the shower, flat floor and bars beside the toilet. Unfortunately there was no bed railing, but we were able to bring our own. Our meal in the Cidery bar in the evening was tasty and the wine to our taste. We breakfasted outside the hotel in a nearby cafe. All staff were helpful and considerate. We enjoyed our stay.

Perfect location

Would have been good to know how the parking system worked beforehand- incredibly stressful for country drivers to access parking - about 6 laps of the block trying to park with front valet before we ventured into underground parking that was also tricky to work out.

Has recently declined in service offerings

Pros: Location
Cons: Readjust your service levels and standards. They are falling somewhat short.
TV would not work when I got back to Hotel, only suggestion was a room move at almost 1am - not likely. Room service meal was two very distinct temperatures with a large portion of it being cold. It was also served on a cracked and broken room service tray with no cutlery. Lights would continually turn off, had to walk around room waving arms to activate room movement sensor, very annoying when you are working at the desk. Trying to check out and reception desk was inundated with a function breaking, It seems the Lobby was also the break out space, making very hard for guests to check out or store luggage. I understand this is not a 5 star property, but it is a Hotel. I would expect at a minimum that TV's would be working, room service meals at an adequate temperature and served to a standard better than what was provided.
