We stayed here for two nights on a tour because it was the most luxurious on offer. The décor is elaborate and augmented with flowers but the overall effect is so overdone and rather garish that it is neither beautiful or restful. But it is certainly expensive. The service was good and helpful and there was lots of choice in restaurants. We ate each time in the Azur restaurant and had the buffet dinner and the breakfast. Both were excellent, with a mix of Chinese and Western items.
The weather was cold and wet, so we did not go for walks in the vicinity except a very brief one between showers. The immediate surrounding area was not very interesting. It is in the centre of the city but not within walking distance of the main attractions. So you have to go by taxi if you don't have a tour guide and the traffic in the city is horrendous - by far the worst I've seen anywhere, including Bangkok.
