I stayed at the Howard Plaza Hotel during a business trip and mini-conference. I found the hotel quite comfortable, the staff very friendly (and proficient in speaking English) and overall decor charming. The entire hotel is non-smoking.
The hotel has an open atrium with a pond in the middle, several floors of shops and many different restaurants. For breakfast, you can choose from a Western or Chinese buffet. There is also wi-fi in the rooms.
Room service is quick. It took about 20 minutes for my dinner to arrive (on two separate occasions). I also arranged for the hotel to send a car to pick me up and drop me back off at the airport. Both cars were right on time and, again, the service was impeccable.
If you're looking to shop, Taipei 101 is a short taxi ride away.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. The hotel is not quite as elegant as the Intercontinental or a typical Westin, but it was really charming and the staff made me feel at home.More
