All of staff I met were very friendly, especially the check-in & out service staff. Also the wine I've received as a gift for using NSW Stay voucher was very nice too! Thanks! The room I stayed with harbour bridge view was excellent (15th floor), just perfect to enjoy the Vivid light show. As it was recently refurbished, the interior was nice and modern. However, the housekeeping routine for the second day was too late, actually didn't happen as we were back to room around 3pm before the cleaner came. So I just requested for new towels. Also noticed some dust on room amenities, like coffee pot/machine and the cupboard shelves. I think it looks more obvious with dark furniture colour. Other than that we enjoyed staying 2 nights with nice view.
