“Excellent Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

Stay in a standard room, 13th floor. Stay here for 2 nights (21/12-23/12) and check in service is fast. Staffs are friendly enough. The room is big for 4 people, providing there is a sauna room(which is also a bath area) and jacuzzi. The toilet is a separate room too. WiFi is free of charge and also the mini bar's drinks. It's worth of money of course if you use the facilities much. There are 3 TVs (1 main and 2 at the bath room). Only the cleaning service is slow. The lady came to tidy up the room at 8pm the next day we arrived. Anyway, it's an excellent stay.

Room Tip: There are 3 towels in the room and we are not allowed to ask for extra one. Drinks in the minibar ar...

Let me start by saying I did not stay at this hotel. My partner and I did a day trip to Macau from Hong Kong just to visit 25 years later and see what's happened to both HK and Macau. The forst thing we noticed was the oddly shaped tower, which I want to say they really tried making it look like a lotus flower, but missed big time.

The only way to describe this hotel is tacky, way over the top with a nouveau riche tacky cheap looking decorations were just thrown all over by King midas. There is enough gold colour, to put Las Vegas to shame.

The casino is very smoky and if you don't want to smell like an ashtray after 15 minutes, might as well stay out. we went to the casino bar and lasted 3 minutes because of the heavy cigarette smoke.

Unfortunately this is the way Macau is going. With increase tourism from mainland China, the place is crazy busy and not in a good way.

If you are on the ferry, cab drivers will not take you to the ferry terminal from around hotel area, and cabs are strictly for hotel guests if trying to pick one up at any hotel.

We did not stay here, but did go into the lobby to look around. It was incredible. We probably spent half an hour looking at stuff. The outside shape of the building draws you in, and once you are in, you will enjoy. Better than a museum....they had huge vaces, carvings, and all kinds of stuff that was just facinating to look at. Even if you don't stay here, it is worth going into!!

To be clear: we did NOT stay in this hotel, but only visited for some gambling during a day trip to Macau. We were drawn by my rather peculiar fascination with bad taste. When it's done really well, bad taste can reach the highest pinnacles of creativity that humanity has to offer.

From Macau's most famous tourist attraction, the ruins of the Sao Paulo cathedral, you have a sweeping panoramic view of the city. One high rise building stands out, the kind of structure that can only make you gasp in disbelief followed by gales of laughter. Somebody's parents scrimped and saved to send their kid to college to become an architect, and this was the fruit of their efforts.

The building has an overtly botanical design -- though not resembling any flower found on this planet. It's gold windows, streaked with runoff stains, reflect the pulsating neon of other nearby casinos. At the very summit an especially odd structure protrudes, evoking a "what the hell is that?" reaction.

Once inside, it's quite literally a jaw-dropping experience. We wanted to linger longer to marvel at some of the most garish and vulgar decor I've seen in my entire life, but the cigarette smoke ultimately forced us out.

So if you think that Elvis on black velvet is fine art, and that Liberace epitomized the ultimate in style and fashion, you will simply ADORE this hotel. Give it a visit!

The grand Lisboa is located close to the central plaza downtown. From this location we were able to walk to most areas in Macau. Service was excellent, Inside the hotel is stunning. The art and carvings displayed throughout the hotel are beautiful. The room was spacious, and clean. Bed very comfortable. Staff was very helpfull. We would definately stay here if back in Macau.

From its contribution to the Macau skyline to the many things to see inside, Grand Lisboa is one of, if not the most visually stimulating hotel there. We also stayed at Wynn Macau and the Venetian-Macao, both also very beautiful, but the character of the Grand Lisboa really stuck with us. The lobby had many interesting pieces scattered around, like large jade art pieces, ivory pieces, a huge emerald, and a huge diamond (can't remember the size, but it was the biggest one I've seen up close.)

The room had 3 TVs, one in the bedroom, one in the commode closet of the bathroom, and the one built into the bathroom mirror. The bedroom TV had surround sound with speakers above the TV and above the bed. The room was clean and comfortable with tons of storage space. Slippers provided were very comfortable. Across from the closet was a seating area with additional oversized drawer storage to the bureau, night stands, and cabinet below the TV.

The doormen are all eager to serve and seemed to always be on the lookout to help someone before they ask. We had a problem redeeming a comp, but when the doorman heard us, he walked us to where he knew someone could help us. He escorted us to the place where we needed to go and back and loaded our numerous luggage pieces into the shuttle and got us on our way- all with a big smile. We felt like royalty! We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

This was our first time to Macau. Staying here is an *experience* -- one you may or may not enjoy, depending on your personality. My husband really hated it. I was glad we stayed there just once for the experience (we live in nearby Shenzhen). But, we'll probably try somewhere else on our next visit!

What we liked:
-Very centrally located, within walking distance of some of the nicer casinos as well as a few historical sites like St. Paul's
-Interesting artwork, etc. on display throughout the hotel
-Feels like you're on the set of a James Bond film
-Fancy shower (several shower heads & steam options)
-Great sushi restaurant inside (if you can find it!)

What to know:
-You WILL get lost constantly -- the layout of the hotel is complicated and it's very hard to find signs or get help from staff to find your way
-The rooms are dim and the furniture/bedding seems a bit old
-Prostitutes roam the hallways outside of the casinos
-Casinos inside are pretty empty/lifeless
