Stayed here for 2 nights at the start of a tour, and then again for 1 night 2 weeks later. The hotel appeared to be in good shape, the staff courteous and friendly, and the breakfast buffet was well laid out.
However, during the first 2 night stay I could hear the guy next door talk on his cell phone for hours, talk with someone in his room for a couple of more hours, and finally sing himself to sleep. The walls are so thin you could hear a mosquito pass gas in the next room. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep.
Two weeks later we were back for a night, and put in a room on the 10th floor - Club Level. We noticed two things when we entered the room - the smell of sewer gas and excessive heat from the bathroom. We opened the window and cranked the air conditioning which almost got the room to tolerable temperature. The smell from the bathroom must have been from a dry sewer trap or something - we ran the sink & shower for a bit and it helped, but the smell returned.. We just kept the bathroom door closed for the remainder of the night.
Apart from solo travelers and business people, the hotel seems to cater to large tour groups They do a good job of processing everyone pretty quickly upon checkin. I think that the large number of groups is starting to wear the place down a little and they should try to keep up the maintenance.
