I stayed for 3 nights and overall it was a lovely hotel, with fantastic staff. I arrived early in the morning, and didn't expect a room to be ready, but the hotel was more than happy to look after my bag until check in time (and again when I checked out until my late afternoon flight). When I checked in, I was given a disabled access room with a view of the carpark behind the hotel. I was unhappy with this, and the reception staff promptly arranged for a porter to move me to a much nicer room overlooking the park.
The room was fantastic. Comfortable bed, big pillows, 37 inch LCD TV (which I was able to plug my laptop and DVD player into), minibar fridge with tea and coffee and a huge bathroom. The toiletries were of a nice standard too. There was a safe in the wardrobe which was big enough for my laptop. My only issue was with the pillows and doona (duvet). They were all feather, which had me sneezing by the 3rd night. I'm sure if I asked they would have been able to replace them with something else. The doona was also FAR too warm for climate in Adelaide in Autumn.
The other facilities also looked great, although I didn't use them. There was a lap pool, spa, sauna, steam room and large gym. The restaurant also looked inviting, and I did have a coffee from the bar that was very nice. There is a free use business centre with internet computers. Wi Fi though is $27a day, which is extraordinary beyond words! There is free Wi Fi if you sit on the park benches outside the hotel, and in most places around the CBD.
The best part of my stay was the staff. They were all very friendly, and happy to help with any request. I would stay again based entirely on my experience with the staff. My only recommendation is to ask for a room overlooking the park (all of the rooms at the back of the building look into a carpark up to the 8th or 9th floor).
