If you love hyper modern hotels then stop reading this right now or you will get annoyed.
The Address is indeed hyper modern. Styled in the colors of black and camel (the only way to describe the color - beige is not good enough) it is marbled and stainless steeled to the hilt. It has obviously been designed - not in the sense of subtle - more "integrated" with the same color and material. Never relieved by reds or blues - it is relentless.
You are greeted with the latest sit-a-desk-in-a-lounge-chair type registrations. It feels like a pleasant job interview, when all I want is my room.
The room I was in was small but relieved by a balcony. Which is great. The view is over the Marina - actually as a Marina it is not what you think - it's a tiny waterway winding between 70 story buildings some of which are still being constructed. Fascinating if you like to study construction methods and the use of cranes.
The Beige and Black room (relieved by the odd beige brown) is good if small. The bathroom is large - as that is when the camel/black marble comes into its own. Looks like square water taps are all the go now. Big shower and a bath with a big window to get a closer view of those cranes.
Supermarket - yep there is a good one in the accompanying "Mall of Endless Brands"
Staff - good but they are way too obsequious for this Australian
Walking - forget it - you can walk around the "Marina" but the view is as I described.
Food in hotel - so so - loads of promise, lots of bowls and 'stations' - but dull. they need some good advice on this. They go for the overcooked and the 'stews'. If you like potatoes in a stew and pasta this is the place for you.
Internet - as expected - excellent and easy
Other: you get more pillows and light switches than you need in a lifetime.
Basically the whole Marina area should have an "Under Construction" sign and wait till it's finished before letting in people.
As a suggestion they could plant a tree or create cascading gardens.
