Massive but lacks the appropriate number of escalators and food venues. Security plentiful. Bathrooms clean. Walking distances to major historical sites.

Accommodations were excellent. Beverages provided were gone early or ran out. Some rooms were cold and some very warm. Wear comfortable shoes. Otherwise, comfortable and great location for shops and restaurants!
