After hearing favorable reviews, I decided to book a Signature room. The room size was okay, but several things were not adequate. The items one would expect in a desk were scattered throughout the room. The chair in the room was uncomfortable. The balcony chairs were too deep to sit naturally. When I checked into the room I saw someone elses name on the tv welcoming screen. Thought it was no big thing, but mentioned it to the people at the reception area. Later in the day I was looking for messages on the tv screen and saw that it was listing messages for another room number. The name on the welcoming screen and room number listed for messages went together. Not mine. Told that to reception and they said they would fix it. Nothing was done. Later that night I spoke to another person who saw that it was fixed.
The sink in the bathroom did not drain. Mentioned it to the reception and they said they would send someone to fix it. No one came.
In the lounge the same food that was served for tea was served during happy hour. The only alcoholic beverages served were beer and wine. If you wanted a mixed drink you had to pay for it. For the amount one pays for a room it should be included. The drinks were served without a napkin and placed on a bare glass table.
Overall I was very disappointed.
