The building forms the centrepoint of Townsville’s central business district so business guests will find that many clients will literally be outside the front door. Tourists, likewise, will be delighted to find that shops, attractions, the Magnetic Island ferry terminal, art galleries and museums, and restaurants and nightclubs are all within a few hundred metres.
Our room was large and the circular building means that it was somewhat unusual in shape with more windows than usual. Our upper floor room had spectacular views of the city, marina, and Coral Sea. It was fully equipped, provided cable TV and internet access, and very comfortable. Some of the 197 rooms are executive suites and junior suites with kitchenettes.
We ate one evening at the Stokes St. Bar and Grill. This offered a good choice of chargrilled cuisine and was a perfect place for a quiet drink. We went past one lunch hour and found it really buzzing with locals.
The hotel had good guest facilities. There was a roof-top pool, separate men’s and women’s mini gymnasiums and massage facilities. There was a business centre with secretarial support for executive guests. Undercover parking was provided in the adjacent multi-storey car park and a valet service operated.
