This is my second stay here in this hotel and I loved it. The viewing of the city on level 7 was awe-inspiring and was so great too look at, especially at night when the city lights are on. Superb!
The rooms were nice and clean and the sleep quality was dreamy!
Car parking underground is a safe and hidden way to keep your cars from any burglars and thieves (especially when you go to the fourth floor its amazing how much underground you are).
Two concerns with this hotel is that the room I booked had the dishwasher leaking water and it wet the carpet and the place. Please fix those awful dishwashers as they are not suitable for a hotel like this one. Also soft close toilet seats are needed to reduce the sound made when closing the lids and making that loud bang.
The buffet breakfast we had was not the type I expected it to be. We got free buffet coupons after the dishwasher incident. The buffet needs to be expanded more and some of the staff were a bit rude at the hotel we stayed. But the food isn't that much of my concern but the dishwashers were.
Overall I would definitely come back to stay as long as those dishwashers are gone!
