We booked this hotel for our last night living in Brisbane on our way home to The States because of it's location being near the airport and because they advertised as sound proof and we needed a good nights rest. This place was one of the noisiest hotels I've ever stayed in. We had a neighbor that was so loud we could hear every single word he said on the phone and he had company until 2 a.m. just jibber jabbering, but there were no spare rooms with a wedding group that was staying there. Also, there was a good deal of traffic noise and noise from the back stairwell where we were located. Also, the bed was like a rock!
On the bright side of this hotel though, the staff was very, very nice and helpful. They made great recommendations for food etc. There is a wonderful new, happening area called Wharfside (I think...) two blocks from the hotel with great shops, restaurants and a movie theater. Also there is a beautiful park just across the way that is a great recluse. The in-room breakfast was pricey and pretty standard, but if you've stayed in Australia you know room service is hard to come by, so it was a nice treat before a log trip.
