Visited here again. This time stayed in a deluxe room with a view of the valley. Drawn away the curtain, the sunlight makes the room brighter. Recent refurbishing change the old CRT tv into an LCD type tv mounted on the wall. As usual, kiosk check-in was very fast. We got our room at 8 am. Room comes with safe... More

Hotel with a lot entertainment for the whole family member, let say, many casino, shopping centre, food court, indoor theme park for kids and outdoor theme park for teenager. I can say, this hotel provided more than 1.000 room.

It is just not a hotel but a whole city within. Shopping complex, restaurant, theme park, taxi stand and what not. You will find everything in it. It just does not end. Make sure you have only one small bag if want to travel by ropeway.

The automated check in procedure is quite cumbersome even for techno savvy persons although there are staff members to help, it is quite time consuming. Although we had booked online... More

Checking in through counters is a lengthy process (getting the request number for going to the check in counter, wait for that number to be called at the counter, time at the check in counter to get the keys to the reserved room). There are check in/out kiosks as well, but not availed them at least for check in, so... More
