From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel very welcome. All the staff from reception, to the leisure club and bar were very pleasant and had a genuine desire to look after us. Our room was really great, with a balcony overlooking the river and boardwalk which is such a nice place to sit and relax. We had dinner in Kudo's and my friend who has lived in Asia for quite a while was very inpressed with the food, as was I. Breakfast was also very nice. The location of the hotel is a big plus, only a few minutes walk to the main shopping area. I would definitely recommend the Clarion whether your stay is for business or leisure.
