This is the second time I use this hotel.
The first time, I travelled with my wife and kids and hence I splurged for the upgrade. The room was spectacular. The staff is great.
The second time, I was alone so I figured I would go back to this hotel. I was hoping to rewarded for my loyalty, instead I was given a tiny tiny tiny room. It was so small that I had to leave the room to change my mind. It was quiet claustrophobic.
I believe that this hotel is great if you upgrade to a superior room however the standard rooms are not worth the money you pay. There are better deals in the city.
