After trolling through numerous packages and hotels on the 'wotif' website, my boyfriend and I decided to book the 'Baby Grand' package which included a chilled bottle of wine and 'decadence platter' of devine chocolates and brownie (not as impressive) on arrival, valet parking (can't comment on this, as we didn't drive! But the doorman in his tophat looked very fancy!), 2 complementary cocktails in the lobby bar (fantastic bartender - knowledgeable and friendly + delicious cocktail!), buffet breakfasts in the Terrace Restaurant (selection of cooked options, cereals, juice, youghurt, pastries and fruit - not above expectations but certainly nice), and a 1pm checkout which was wonderful rather than rushing out in the morning! The city view luxury king room was gorgeous, with 2 large plasma screens, large windows, modern bathroom, and extremely comfortable bed!
The lap pool was quite cold but the spa and sauna were lovely, the gym was small with a few treadmills and weights, but didn't trial it! Worth asking for a room on a high floor as well - the view from the 18th floor was stunning!
Staff were friendly, facilities clean, modern and impressively designed. The only complaints I could make would be cold tea at breakfast and staff walking into our room at 12pm on checkout day when the 'do not disturb' sign was on the door. Otherwise very impressed and wish we could have stayed a week!
