Firstly, I really do need to state the good points, as there are some very good points. The location is exceptional, the beds are so comfortable I slept-in (which I never usually do), and the pillows were the most comfortable I've ever slept on after The Palazzo in Vegas. The room was also HUGE, much bigger than most other hotels (if you get a 'twin' room, you get two huge double beds and a larger room, FYI) view over the swan river was just stunning, and the bathroom was absolutely gorgeous!
From the outside the hotel looks gorgeous, and the lobby is also impressive, however there are some things severely lacking for me to agree with it being '5 star'. The sauna was broken and was filthy dirty, the steam room was the same. The gym equipment was tired and outdated, and the pool was far too small for the size of the hotel, so was constantly packed with people. So basically all we used was the room. Just the little things like that made me disagree with its 5 star rating, I think it really just needs a complete refresh and update - everything was quite tired and dated.
