I stayed one night in Feb 2014 for a conference. I had to upgrade to a privilege room because the hotel was so full. There were good bits and not-so-good bits.
The room itself was a good size, nice to have the Nespresso coffee machine (just like home!). The bed was massive and comfy. However, the whole floor (14) smelled of fried food - like the output of an extractor fan - and consequently, the room smelled too. Not particularly pleasant.
The hotel is in a good central location. It was nice to be able to stroll round the corner to Chinatown for dinner.
The public areas of the hotel were good - nice bar. Breakfast was excellent, with lots of choice and everything was decent quality.
I was, however, really annoyed to be charged up front for my room on checking in and to be "not allowed" to open a tab. As a business traveller, this was inconvenient. No explanation was given.
To be honest, I wouldn't stay again. There's plenty of choice in the area and so next time I'll shop around!
