We stayed here after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. And we are glad we did. The hotel was ideally located as my husband was attending a convention at the Convention centre. It was only about a 5 minute walk to here. The Gaslamp restaurant precinct was only 2 minutes away and the most recommended restaurants were only a short walk from the hotel. The concierge had a very handy map with all the restaurants written on it and was more than happy to help us with recommendations. Shopping was very easily accessible as well due to small boutique shops in the next street along with Westfield Horton Plaza only 10 minutes walk away. We did not eat in the restaurant here as we had been told by a fellow traveller that breakfast was very busy and not very good. However, two shops away is the Broken Yolk which has a great menu and very inexpensive breakfasts for most the day. The pool area on the 4th floor has a bar, and a great atmosphere. We even witnessed a wedding as well as a film festival function on one day! We stayed in the Masters Suite and found it to be very comfortable. One criticism was the lack of information in the room. There were no books explaining the hotels amenities or services. The laundry bag was hanging in the wardrobe but there were no instructions regarding the service. However, this was a small shortcoming for the excellent facilities and location. A very mixed group of people staying here, however, I did take heed when reading the reviews and requested a high up quiet room as the pool bar can get noisy at night. Don't forget the free wine hour every day. Its great for networking or just making friends.
