Love this property. The only drawback was the long line and wait to check in with the front desk. Front desk agents were friendly. We've only had breakfast at the hotel and it was excellent. Wide variety of items to choose from. The area was safe and we walked most of the trip. The harbour was a few minutes away and easy access to the harbour bridge. Across the harbor is the zoo, the aquarium, etc... and lots of restaurants. Chinatown and Paddy's market was a short 15 minute walk. During our stay was the VIVID event and from the hotel we had an awesome view of the water light show with music and fireworks. I high recommend this property.

Barely luke warm shower. Even after being moved to another room. Cold showers for 5 days....NO THANKS!! After complaining to reception about the temperature of the shower she was kind enough to move me to another room but she did make the comment that it may be no better. Trying to save on power?? No water in the rooms anymore?? Makeup on the towels?? Perhaps a bit of cost cutting going on?? Very disapointing that after staying here dozens of times over the past 10 years....won't be back!!
