Hotel: Sheraton Brisbane Hotel & Towers. Bought over the web on a March Madness sale for AUD 150. We received AUD20 in food & beverage vouchers. We didn't use the vouchers, but ended up giving them to another table at breakfast. Turned out that the recipients lived locally in Brisbane and were very happy to get the coupons! We spend an additional AUD .80 on a telephone call.
