Great central location within walking distance to restaurants, The Octagon, Casino and George Street. Beautiful rooms, although the fan in my bathroom didn't appear to work to eliminate steam and it would be nice if they had heated mirrors to avoid that foggy experience. Parking is $20/night at carpark directly next to the hotel which is secure. Valet is an extra $5/night and street parking is free before 9am and after 6pm Mon-Sat and all day Sunday. Seemed safe enough so did that one night and used the parking one night as I didn't need my car on the Saturday and didn't want to get a ticket on the street. My room key didn't let me in when I arrived back early Sunday morning, so a bit of a pain. Man on the desk sorted it out very quickly by re-jigging it to let me in, but not sure why it had cut me out as I was booked to stay two nights and this was my second night. Other than that nice hotel, some of the front desk staff really friendly, others pretend they can't see you right in front of you - but overall a nice stay.
