Adina is my company's preferred supplier for accommodation so I am pretty familiar with what they have on offer.
Adina apartments generally range from good down to adequate, depending upon location. Adina Treasury is an exception - it is a very high standard that would be suitable for leisure travel and special occasions. It is not a luxury hotel, but is much better than your average conference hotel. The apartments are well sized, well appointed and elegant with high ceilings and colonial windows. Bedrooms are quiet (even on the street side) with exceptionally comfortable beds. Fittings are of a superior standard and the refurbishment is still new.
The gym is small and fairly standard, but does the job. The lap pool is a good place to start the day, or perhaps the spa or sauna. (note - the maintenance staff do not understand how an electric sauna works and get upset about the idea of pouring water onto the stones, so you will need to BYO a cup or two of water).
Subterranean tunnels connect all the facilities together (although apparently only a small proportion are open, there are tunnels to surrounding buildings that are still closed off). I am surprised they have not put in a cellar bar, but maybe don't have the market for it.
Breakfast in the Courtyard was a highlight of the day and I made a point of an extra coffee each morning just to get a bit longer by the fountain. Breakfast menu was quite reasonable.
Minor gripes - I really don't understand why Australian hotels think it is acceptable to gouge an extra $10 a day or so for internet. This is Adina policy but annoying none the less. The parking is a few minutes walk from the hotel and you might not want to take that route at 2AM. Note - the night staff are completely unable to explain how to get there (it is on a one way street and a bit counterintuitive, so they need a map).
Location is fairly central, in easy walking distance to Goudger street restaurant precinct and Chinatown.
I have no hesitation recommending Adina treasury. I have paid a lot more and got nowhere near the same standard of accommodation elsewhere.
