OK... if you insist. There's some smokers next to the entrance. The bar on the ground floor works at slow speed. There's no place to relax and enjoy a drink.
Arrive and a uniformed doorman is likely to open your taxi door. Check in is quick, polite and to the point. Unfortunately they were out of clean rooms just them (1 in the afternoon) so I handed my luggage to a concierge (took seconds to do) and went to the bar for a sandwich and a beer.
Took a full 10 minutes for a beer to appear even though the place was very empty and another 5 for a very mediocre club sandwich. Probably the starbucks across the road would have been a better option. It would have been fitting their status of a 5 star if they came to find me in the bar once they had a room ready.
Anyway, 50 minutes later I was in 3507. Decor is rather 1990s American chic but well maintained. Room was very clean even in the easy to miss parts. A button on the phone promises a one call fix to all your problems. I had to use it twice to get a second blanket.
Beds are miles ahead of the synthetic back-unfriendly rubbish they have at the accor group. There's a water cooker and a mini-bar which features among other things condoms and tampons. Plenty of cosmetics in the bathroom including mouthwash.
Internet access in the room isn't free but it is wireless and pretty fast most of the time.
Airco is good, noise insulation for outside is excellent, for inside pretty good.
Breakfast has pretty much everything ever devised for that meal including miso soup and rice for the Asian guests. A cook doing omelets to order and a huge buffet of almost everything including wafers and a whipped cream dispenser. Only bad thing was the bacon, tasted and looked like it was precooked in a factory and reheated. Everything was exactly the same shade and I found 6 pieces still linked to eachother. Weird!
There's a bar on the 40th floor which should offer a nice view of the city. However that's spoiled by poorly placed interior lights which cause reflections so you can't see out all that much. A DJ is apparently necessary to prevent people from relaxing and enjoying a drink. That is something missing. The lobby bar is all marble and chrome and high ceiling and located on the side of the rest of the lobby which features more of that it also closes fairly early. The bar on the top of the building has all the atmosphere of a second rate nightclub.
I'd gladly have their beds and half of their breakfast buffet in any hotel, not sure if I'd return, I probably would if I could get a decent company rate negotiated by our travel desk.
