Stayed 2 nights for a meeting/conference; my first room was on the 3rd floor (305), and was very disappointing (it looked out onto a car park across the road, it was dark with poor lighting, basic with a low shower head over the bath & low ceiling height; totally lacking any "warmth"). I later learnt the rooms on the first 3 floors are budget rooms.
The next morning I asked to move to a quieter room as the road noise made it very hard to sleep (I had to sleep with the single window closed and the air con on). I was upgraded at no extra cost to a one-bedroom apartment on the 14th floor (1401); I could have been staying at a totally different hotel - the room could not have been nicer!! The bedroom was large with a separate shower, laundry facilities, iron/ironing board, full kitchen facilities, spacious lounge and large balcony with views back over the city and out to the west. While there was still a hum of traffic from 6am onwards I strongly recommend you pay the $30 or so difference and stay in one of the apartments. Others in our party stayed in the 2 and 3 bedroom apartments 1306 & 1307; these have a lot of space with magnificent views over the harbour. I had one cooked breakfast at the hotel which I could'nt eat - the food was terrible and expensive ($25 for a cooked breakfast); better to walk the 5 minutes down to the viaduct basin and eat there where the food is cheaper, much better quality and with views of the water/harbour.
We held our meetings in a long uninspiring rectangular meeting room on the ground floor. The shape and size of the room are not great and the windows face onto a busy noisey road.
The best feature of this hotel is it's central location (5 min walk to the viaduct, 10 min to Sky City and 5 min to Queens Street), and the self-contained apartments.
