For the price I paid satisfied but this is definitely not a 5 star hotel or 4 1/2 star hotel. We were given a "deluxe" room in an annex building,. We had to leave the main hotel , go outside and cross an unsecure and rather dingy alley to get to our room. Other than a swipe card, there is no security or personnel manning this building, and on a Saturday night all sorts of characters, drunks etc. were hanging out in the alley. It didn't really bother me, but for many people (woman? elderly?) or someone payimg rack-rate for what they thought was a 5-star hotel experience this would be unacceptable. I cannot imagine any "5 star" hotel that makes you cross an unsecured ally to get to your room in an that has no personnal manning that building. If I had been paying "rack" rate would have felt taken but my rate was quite good.
Our room was fine but not luxurious, perhaps 3 1/2 stars. Updated but with dings chips and wear The general appearance of the lobby, a bit worn out.
ALSO: The free internet is not quite free. You get an allocation of 100mb data per 24 hours (which is almost NOTHING), then you have to pay additional data charges at a very high cost. In my case, just pushing my emails up to my PDA exhausted my data in about 3 minutes! The website I booked through touted FREE INTERNET is a major selling point and in this case is facilitating a BAIT AND SWITCH.scheme.
