I can’t write enough in regards to the lovely service that we have experienced at The Darling and at Sokyo restaurant. The staff were amazing and always willing to help. The porters were very polite and assisted us with directions and recommendations for dinner. We will be back next month and can’t wait to come back and stay here. The girl at the front desk offered us comp upgrade and the room was amazing.

My husband and I stayed at the darling for two night, we booked a Jewel Spa Suite. We lucky enough to get upgraded to one of their Adored Spa suites. The room was amazing! The spa was our favourite, we spent both nights relaxing in the spa, with the lights off just looking at the beautiful skyline. We also got some room service for dinner, I had the Ribeye steak, it was cooked to perfection, we also had the tofu cheesecake and let me tell you, you will not want to miss out on that! The service was amazing as well!

When we arrived at the hotel we were amazed at how quickly the staff attended to us. We arrived way before we were supposed to check-in and yet they safely stored our luggage, allowing us to go and explore the Star and surroundings. It was my partners and my anniversary and they upgraded us to the most amazing suite with beautiful city views. We were blown away by this kind gesture. The room itself was spectacular and we couldn't have asked for a better evening. Thank you to Jean Barba and all of the other lovely staff that made our stay so memorable. We will be back for all future celebrations to come.
