Parkroyal - Ocean Palm Suite

Hi everyone

I have been reading voraciously as I think we will head to Penang after 6 days in Hong Kong (1st time). Was initially thinking Bali (been lots) or Phuket (never been) but now have my sights on Penang, for various reasons which I won't go into but political unrest is deterring me from both and I want to relax not stress. Bit worried about the weather at that time of year in Penang too. So, my question is, has anyone actually seen an Ocean Palm Suite at the Parkroyal recently and can describe it, as the website is not very clear, and where they are actually located in the complex? Floorplan? (Yes, I don't particularly wanted to be woken at 5am). They're offering some great rates! I'm travelling with my 16 yo son and I guess I'd like some extra space between us too :) I'm brain dead from deciding on a destination let alone a hotel now - Rasa, GS or PR......I need help! :) I don't drink so I can't see the need or desire to pay the over-the-top prices in Rasa Wing but I do like a little comfort and space at night after a long hard day of relaxing around the pool, eating, massages and shopping and of course, some sightseeing too :) I do like to unwind watching some tele or a DVD (not something I get to do often in real life!) Oh yeah, travelling 13 November 08 to Hong Kong then 19 November to Penang for 6.5 days. This trip is to celebrate my 50th :) :P (must have an excuse to travel hahaha). Also is there any construction/renovation going on either at that hotel or next door that may be a pain in the proverbial? Read somewhere there was something going on. Any help, thoughts, suggestions...help me make a choice!

Thanks heaps

Very long question/post and I cannot offer advice on Parkroyal.

Suggest you post again with bullet point questions.

alternative to Parkroyal & Rasa is Golden Sands.
