My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing three nights here two weeks ago, and can recommend this hotel as ideally positioned in the CBD, close to Chinatown and shopping precinct.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, including allocating a wonderful quiet room on the 6th floor (603).
If you choose to bring a car, and self park it, then be warned the hotel parking garage is located in Russell Street (Beside Mantra Hotel), so there is a bit of a walk between the garage and hotel. Also parking spaces on our arrival were very limited, and we had to park at the top level with only two spaces left. Also the lifts did not work the entire time we were there, and we had to negotiate stairs from the top floor.
