The best thing about my room was the great view of the Love River and the Harbor, especially at night. Also, the staff gets an A+ for helpfulness and responsiveness. The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the subway, which incidentally is near empty at 9:00 am. Cabs are cheap and the drivers are friendly and good at understanding bad Mandarin! The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The complimentary pineapple cakes are quite special and a good option for gifts. Otherwise, the room is a little dated, like a mid-priced business chain hotel. The food at the breakfast and in the Chinese restaurant upstairs was average and better can be had outside the hotel.
