We spend NYE and the lead up to it at the hotel. Our first impressions it is really tricky to find. When you do find it you may also be disappointed that there are not enough car spots. However on the second night there were got one. The staff were kind enough to advise we can park on the street overnight and we should be able to get one the next day.
We didn't eat at the hotel just slept. Have to say the layout of the hotel is awkward. It is obvious that the checkin is not purpose built. The choice of furniture in the lobby is awful and clashes with everything. The building has been designed poorly and having walked through the charming Hadleys into the apartments it is obvious it lacks the same atmosphere.
The rooms are large and clean. However there are some annoying features which have not been fully thought out. The sensor lights in the bathrooms made a loud noise and the light only stays on for 10 or so seconds. Also the bathrooms are really dark unless you use the heat function in the light mix. So I couldn't see to do my hair or make up. The bed which I assume is king size is actually two beds joined together. Not comfy to feel the ridge during the night.
I would also get rid of those bid wooden doors covering the windows they are not pleasant to look at, although understand they might block out the morning sun. The interior design and fittings have not been carefully chose and appear to be a poor quality.
On the plus side its centrally located right opposite Country road on Collins street, short walk to the piers and Woolworths. Staff are friendly, although you don't really see many of them around. It will be interesting to see what the RACV/RACT do to this place in the future to improve the ambience.
