Stayed here recently for four nights as part of a business trip to Taiwan. The main thing that sets this hotel apart from others in Taiwan is (1) its service and (2) its exercise facilities. The service here is impressive, somebody is always available to help and a concierge who is spot on with local recommendations. A car service to impress and nothing that misses a beat while you stay at this hotel. Very impressive service.
The gym is one of the best that i have ever seen. They have a huge work-out space with a side area for yoga, etc. Again, the staff at the gym is top notch and will give you everything you need during your stay.
The rooms are very nicely appointed and the bathrooms exceed those of other hotels in Taiwan. A little television is very nice for when getting ready in the mornings. The shower is worth noting also, as it is awesome and expansive.
The top floor bar/restaurant had an excellent view of the city. The drinks are very creative and the staff attentive. Marco Polo restaurant is very good but expensive for Taiwan, just like the hotel.
The hotel is expensive for Taiwan so I view this as more of a business hotel. Nevertheless, it is the best business hotel I have seen in Taiwan so it deserves the top rankings it so typically receives.
