We arrived early in the morning on the overnight train from Sydney and asked if it would be possible to check in early. This was no problem and were even given a room upgrade. The room was good with views over the river and convention centre. Breakfast was excellent. We took advantage of the 30 minutes free wifi per day in the lobby area which was enough time to catch up on our emails. The hotel is in an excellent location for the free tram which we used to travel around the city. There are restaurants along the river although some are expensive.
