The Splendor is a modern and lavish hotel in THE landmark building conveniently located in the heart of Kaohsiung City. Everything about this hotel is first class. Much has been noted about the incredible views, as all rooms are above the 42nd floor (ours was on the 66th), and all views are spectacular.
Rooms are spacious and nicely appointed. The double beds are king-sized and while the matresses are the hard style common in Asia, the hotel will happily and promptly supply you with a soft pad to increase your sleeping comfort.
The breakfast buffet, served in The Brasserie on the 39th floor (floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbor) is sumptuous, and includes both Asian and Western-style offerings. Lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner also are served there, but the property boasts six other restaurants as well.
Service is friendly and efficient. All staff go out of their way to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. The doormen are especially helpful in direcing taxi drivers to your destinations as you leave the property. The 40th floor gym, sauna, and pool are in a health club available to local members. They are state-of-the-art, again with helpful staff always in attendance.
Our stay at this hotel was for nine days, and as "long-term guests" we were comped for a number of things, including use of the Executive Lounge and discounts on some of the hotel's services. That wasn't necessary, but much appreciated and typical of the hotel's hospitality.
In all, I can't say enough good things about The Splendor, and I recommend it enthusiastically. It was one of the finest travel destinations in memory, and certainly enhanced our appreciation of this charming city.
