Stayed at the Desmond for 5 days during a business conference.
The service from the staff was excellent. I was very pleased by the way they attended to our needs.
Once you get accustomed to the layout of the hotel it's not too confusing, but got lost a couple of times on the first day. Every hall and corridor looks exactly the same. May be time to update the wallpaper.
Rooms and hallways have a musty smell that never receded no matter how much air freshened I sprayed or scented candles I burned.
Unfortunately, the food offered to the conference guests was inedible. The worst I ever tasted. But people who ate at the hotel restaurant seems to enjoy the food there.
Great location. Lots of stores, restaurants and malls nearby.
