It was a wow factor as soon as I stepped into my room at The Darling. I have stayed here twice for business trip so far and I look forward to staying here again. It is a very new hotel with modern design and high tech. Almost everything in the room is automated, e.g. curtains, lights, climate control all controlled via the large TV. I fell in love with the shower and toilet. Very modern and clever design. You definitely feel pampered while you stay here. Be careful with the mini bar as it is automated and very sensitive, so if you lift something up or place something in the mini bar, you may be charged by accident, however receptionist can rectify this situation.
Second time I stayed here, there was an issue with the hot water. It wasn't running although I had it run for 10-15 minutes with no luck. It was ok the following morning.
This hotel is also very popular with celebrities. Came across with Joel Madden and Nicole Richie in the lobby who was staying at this hotel at the time.
