What I liked:
First of all, the bay view room is not as interesting as the Aqua room!
Although the fish tank wall only lights up from 6am-10pm, it's all worth it...there's an option to put a blind down if you don't want to sleep next to the aquarium as the bed is literally next to it.
Room temperature is cool enough and the whole design of the lobby and reception are modern and stylish.
Staffs at reception and room service were very polite and friendly.
Lots of choices for breakfast when we come down the next day.
What I didn't like:
Staff at restaurant had no sense of urgency especially on replenishing the food.
Also, the host desk wants to discussed the extra bill for my 2 extra guests but instead of coming to our table, she gave a wave gesture to ask me to stand up and attend her at the host desk... Please!?
They still don't offer any park tickets with their room rate, they should add this as a promotion.
