Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes!

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Cheapest room received ! BR Suite with Harbour View! (Note, used BOGO and points)

How are the rooms?
Pretty nice. Separate living room, large windows with a beautiful view. A little dated and a very runny toilet, but the view more than made up for it!

How is the exec. lounge?
Beautiful panoramic views. Fantastic terrace. Good selection at breakfast, tea time, and canapes. However, I often felt like I was being interrogated like a criminal when entering the lounge. I did not notice this treatment of others.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Crappy fruit plate, bottled waters, and a reusable branded coffee cup.

How was the minibar?
Fairly standard, but included a nice half bottle of Australian Chandon and Shiraz.

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
Good price (BOGO and points)
Gorgeous view and proximity to transport
Beautiful lounge views and ample food and drinks selections
A room was ready to freshen up immediately upon arrival (key for the long haul red eye)

-Bad
Room was a little tired and plumbing issues (toilet ran constantly!)
Service in lounge was a bit rough at times (though improved during my stay)

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
For sure (especially, as it was over the Easter holiday)!

Would you return?
The location for a tourist trip is ideal and would definitely return. Also seems well positioned for business in the CBD.
