We booked for a 4-night stay at this hotel and declined to pay extra for a top-floor apartment. We were pleasantly surprised to have a 40th floor apartment at no charge, just one floor short of the very top! Firstly, I did not know that such a luxurious hotel, offering apartments existed at the city centre. I am glad that I found and booked it. The rooms were spacious and clean and we had a wonderful view of the river and most of the suburbs. It is affordable and parking was good (didn't have the crampy feeling of parking in the city). Unlike most apartments too, we did not have to vacuum before checking out! That was one pressure of checking out taken off.
Only little issue I had was the hotel did not have enough pots for anyone who wishes to cook like one meal a day. They do have all the cutlery though. They should keep some pots to give out on request, if they do not intend to supply every room.
I recommend this hotel, and will return again in future.
