I booked two standard rooms for 3 nights at the end of February 2012. I have concierge status within the Club Carlson program, so I asked for an upgrade upon check-in. Both rooms were upgraded to a partial harbor view. Both rooms were recently renovated; however, one room was more modern than the other (flat screen vs old TV; wood furnishing vs white painted wood, etc.). Both rooms were clean, had comfy king-sized beds and updated bathrooms.
I was able to view a two room suite...gorgeous! Highly recommended if it fits your budget and vacation needs.
The common areas and hotel location are great; however, a renovated room with a view is a must.
The hotel offered reliable shuttle service to and from the V&A Waterfront once an hour. In addition, the hotel could easily organize a cab into downtown and transport to and from the airport. The concierge desk was very helpful in booking excursions and providing suggestions on local markets. However, I had an issue with two dinner reservations booked by the concierge desk. I was not informed that the first reservation was not confirmed. I only found out when I tried to confirm transportation to the restaurant. Upon arrival at the 2nd restaurant (emergency reservation restaurant), my party was seated, but we were not on the reservation list. I informed the concierge desk and they were apologetic for the mishap. Housekeeping was slow in response to requests for ice and additional towels, but not a deal breaker.
We ate breakfast at the hotel each day. The service was great and the food variety met our expectations.
I would stay here again in the future.
