Just across the road from the Realm, this new hotel is a quieter alternative. Rooms are very well appointed and spacious with beds that are ridiculously comfy - I loved the real doona, a nice cosy touch. With windows you can open, you can also escape the constant air conditioning, too. I did enjoy a great night's sleep.
The decor is very modern and rich but a little dark. Bathrooms are well designed and provide all you need. Apple TV connects your TV, internet and sound so you can really make it feel like home away from home.
My only disappointment was the fact there is no room service yet. Meals are available in the fine dining Chinese restaurant downstairs or across the road at Realm. I often need to work in my room after arriving late so room service allows me to save a little time by not having to wait for dinner service etc. The whole precinct really needs some cafe style places that stay open for dinner.
I would recommend the hotel - just keep in mind that it IS new and is still developing it's soul & buzz.
