The room

My room (Junior Suite 1406) was an entry-level studio-style apartment that would perfectly suit a solo business person or travelling couple. It’s full of natural light and at 45 square metres is a useful and sizable space. The galley-style kitchen is a worthwhile inclusion if you are here for an extended stay, but perhaps redundant for just one or two nights. Nevertheless, it is comprehensively equipped and comes with quality tea and coffee making facilities, lots of cupboards and a full-size fridge.

The big bathroom is also flooded with natural light and comes with a double shower and an enormous bath, gorgeous amenities and vanity. Luggage storage also shares this space, which includes a rack for shoes, suitcase storage and clothes hanging space.

The whopping flatscreen TV is placed for in-bed viewing and there is also a small dining table and sitting area.

Top suite

You’ll need to book well ahead for the popular top tier suites, the largest one being the enormous 160-square-metre three-bedroom apartment that would be ideal for a travelling group, extended family or rock star with their entourage. As you’d expect, the spaces are filled with premium furnishings and the view is spectacular from its penthouse position.

If you are travelling solo or with another, the 70-square-metre Executive Suite has probably more space per person than three couples in the three-bedroom suite and with comparable appointments.

Both of these suites come with Executive Privileges such as complimentary laundry and private check-in/out.
