The hotel is well located and I enjoyed the courtesy shuttle to the Waterfront mall. With the exception of some few things to be attended to, I will definitely go back to this hotel in the near future.

Sort your staff and service out . Staff were grumpy and rude. The food also was not of the best quality. I requested special catering at breakfast and it was done on one day only out of the 4 days, I stayed
