I chose this hotel specifically for the swimming pool. I had my other staff stay for a little bit less at the Novotel down the road right next to the ExCel where we were working. I travel 3 weeks out of four somewhere in the world. I swim every day of the year and thus a decent pool is high on my list. If they had managed to heat this pool it would have been great. I had four days of 50 minute swims in cool water in what should have been, as advertised, a heated pool. The signs about the problem were getting tattered and every day the staff seemed to have another lame story. No sense or urgency was shown in dealing with the issue. They seemed to not care about the problem enough to get it fixed. My bet is the problem still exists today!
