Good hotel
Very good room with water view; very clean, really comfortable bed, fast reliable wifi, good breakfast, staff were very helpful and efficient. Right next to Darling Harbour with easy access to the city and light rail station. Lifts are a bit slow and the gym is tiny and sub-par. You have to walk outside to get to the gym.

Very convienient locations and comfortable room.
The Breakfast bar was not enough varieties compare to other Hotels. Limited coffee per person. Very nice and friendly house keeping. Was having difficulties hearing a staff speaking at reception while we check in. But overall happy with the hotel.

Disappointed but left happy
Room and hallways were not clean..previous guests shoe and computer cable were found under bed and there was a lot of dirt etc outside lifts on our floor...BUT once we pointed this out, the management team was extremely apologetic and put it all right well done to that team...shame on your room cleaners

Good Position, but we didn't get a good night
Booked a STD Queen and they gave us a disabled room. Not too much of a problem except that there is no bath and my wife likes a bath. Incidentally the shower would be almost impossible for a person in a chair to use. They also stuck us out in the Atrium section, the front door are so thin I could hear kids yelling and carrying on and all sorts of other noises. I probably should have said something but I really couldn't go through that hassle at the time. The elevators were incredibly slow at one point on the Saturday Morn there over 30 people waiting for elevators. You couldn't use the stairs to go up as they are all locked from the stairwell. All in all not a pleasant experience.

No king beds. No welcome pack for ACCOR membership Unfriendly checkin person. Requested an express checkout but didn't receive it. My stay was more than 7 days ago and I have not seen my Virgin Velocity points in my Velocity profile. How long does this take?
