We stayed on 23rd floor, it was fantastic. Was there with family as I was attending conference. Views were great, apartment was very clean. Reception service was great as we were allowed to check in early as we arrived earlier than expected. I will definitely stay here again and the views were stunning. Highly recommended. Also, car parking is free..

WE stayed here in 2012,(the site wouldn't let me put in that date) and it was fantastic, with a big pool and great, family friendly location. We really liked the sushi train downstairs (especially on wednesdays, $2 a plate!) Big pool and large rooms.
