Had a 5 night stay in a plaza suite ( taipei 101 view as requested )The standout part of this property is the staff -from the limo greeting at the airport to the concierge and the excellent horizon lounge staff especially May Wu the lounge manager during our stay who was kind ,helpful and interesting to converse with.The hotel itself is due a technology overhaul which is planned we were told in the near future for eg the tv in the bedroom is about twice the size of the one in the lounge of the suite,also the suite lacks power sockets and mood lighting is really needed to bring the rooms up to date, you can only switch on the various lamps in your lounge when the main lights are on as well which kinda defeats the idea of a more relaxing light level.The best part of the suite was the bathroom which was spacious and well maintained & i agree with other reviewers that the tv in here is pretty pointless being next to the sink.We found the bed a little firm and asked for another topper but as best we could tell they changed the whole mattress which was superb.
Horizon lounge very comfortable with good food & breakfast choices and of course the ever helpful staff who wrote out many of the taxi adds on cards for excursions out.
We also used the metro about 7 -10 min walk which was easy to navigate and combined well with the cheap taxi`s.
Would suggest club level is best option for leisure travellers especially if a first time in Taipei
