We stayed for 2 nights, new years eve and new years day...excellent choice.
Being that sky city tower is right next door you barely have to go anywhere, there are plenty of restaurants, clubs/bars, activities(sky jump), spa and even a casino.
On new years eve there was special events/entertainment at sky city which created a fun atmosphere. And despite everything going on around the hotel, once up in our room we couldnt really hear any noise form the street which was great!
Our room was on level 19, no.4 (Luxury King room) and we had an awesome view of the fireworks which came from the sky tower, as well as a great view over the city of firworks from the harbour and other random places.
The room was beautiful, very clean and classy...lovely bathroom - except the toilet seat was a strange shape which was a little uncomfortable.
Buffet breakfast was great, staff were lovely, room service quick.
Definitely recommend! And ask for a high level room...
DO NOT dine at the Peter Gordon restaurant, unless you enjoy paying $50+ for a main the size of your palm. Very snobby waiters.More
