Good hotel, good location. The Emporium complex has some good (and not so good/overpriced) restaurant choices and round the corner, 5 mins walk to James Street there are some nice cafes and bars. Regular buses into town, not far from the airport - about 20 mins. This hotel is not in the middle of an intersection as one of the other reviews notes - it is a new complex though. The staff were all friendly and helpful, one of the concierges went out of his way to find us a good restaurant on a public holiday. Very early morning cabs etc booked for us on time.
The room was good - excellent facilities, I'd stay there again for sure.
Couldn't really fault the room or the service we had - the pool is small-ish but lovely.
The bar though - the cocktails were awful. Better to walk into James St and try Cru - excellent cocktails there and great wine list. In James St theres' a good deli called spoon and a produce market for breakfast. Within the Emporium complex: depot is also a good breakfast option (it was closed for dinner when we were there) Mecca Bah, was a bit overpriced and not great. Three on the other hand was excellent when we tried it.
