The Sebel is an OK hotel ... not opulent or indulgent, but well positioned next to the conference centre.
Room service is as one might expect in a hotel of this kind. The hotel foyer feels dominated by the restaurant bar area, with the accommodation almost apologetically hidden down the back.
I think some of the negative reviews are overly negative ... whilst I wouldn't rate this as the best hotel I've stayed in, it is comfortable, well run and with nice rooms.
Two minor gripes ... putting prices on the large bottles of shampoo in my room feels a little like your integrity is being demeaned .. just ruins the feel a little.
Internet charges are excessive (in fact it is cheaper to walk to the convenience store nearby and buy a USB modem which you can take with you) ... when will Australian hotels get up to speed with their overseas counterparts who almost all offer free internet?
