Excellent view. Terrible showers and beds
The view is amazing. We got the 37th floor. Views on Kangaroo point, south bank and the city. However the showers were dated and the shower head is fixed to the wall and my partner who is small struggled to fit under it, let alone me at 6'5. It came up to my lower chest. The beds were two beds joined together and all you could feel was the hard seam in the middle. The staff were friendly however were not able to fix the foxtel for the 3 nights we were there.

Staff lovely but that's all.
Comfortable but dirty. Beds good but glass rings and food on tables were disgusting. Also the buttons on the TV remote were so worn we could hardly read them. The exhaust fan in the bathroom didn't work either.

Weekend Stay
The rooms were very spacious for an inner city apartment and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Great location but that is it
Location. Bed comfort
The hotel is very sibstandard. Showers were so low, everyone in my family needed to bend down to use them. They gave 1 towel per person, no hand towels in bathroom or face cloths. They had no amenities. I asked for more towels and they did not bring. I have paid less in the city and gotten a lot more from hotels/apartments that were cheaper or a lower star rating. Would not stay again for basic comfort reasons.
