I stayed here for two nights in February 2012 for work. I thought that they hotel was fantastic, with my only real complaint being that I thought the room rates were a little high (compared to comparable hotels in Nairobi - where granted, there is more competition).
Otherwise, this is an excellent choice. The staff were friendly and helpful (although service sometimes a little slow in the lobby coffee bar)
The rooms are terrific. A lot of "chic" factors and finishings for a chain hotel throughout the room and bathroom (e.g., pull-out drawers which open from behind the mirror). Very comfortable beds and a nice seating bench next to the window.
The restaurants and bars at the hotel were very good. I dined in the main restaurant for lunch and breakfast, which had a diverse offering (Indian, Contintental, etc. cuisine). The Asian restaurant and coffee bar were also nice. The highlight for me is the bar on the top floor which has indoor and outdoor space and offers panoramic views of the harbor.
Lastly, the location is nice and right in downtown - I was able to safely walk around the surrounding neighborhood during the daytime.
Good choice and if back in Dar I will try to stay here first.
