For my first trip to Taipei, I had my choice of staying at any one of the Starwood properties in the city. I choose the Sheraton based on its central location, not expecting anything too special as far as décor, amenities or my overall experience there. Boy was I wrong. Here’s why this will be my go-to hotel the next time I come to town. Location-the express bus from the airport stops right outside the hotel doors and was the best option coming into town. You are a short walk to the main/central train station and within one block is a metro stop. Also within 2 blocks away is a fully stocked supermarket and plenty of restaurants are located around the corner. Service-staff was helpful, accommodating and eager to please. From the front desk to the executive business lounge, every interaction was top-notch and I was made to feel like a welcomed guest. Amenities-restaurant had enormous buffet set up for all meals, including afternoon tea. And by the size of the crowds there each day, it appeared that non-hotel guests came to enjoy the offerings. Executive lounge amenities were more than sufficient whether it was for breakfast or evening snacks. Multi-lingual staff makes for easy communication. Rooms are modern and spacious even if you are not upgraded or stay on the executive level. And to relax, the spa area provided a variety of wet saunas and pools in a Japanese-style bathhouse setting, complete with rest area, tea and lockers.
Overall, I was more than impressed with everything that the hotel had to offer. Though it’s located in the middle of many government buildings which make for somewhat quiet surroundings, the proximity to mass transit, sights and restaurants ensures that you will have all your needs met inside and outside of the property.
