I stayed here for a work meeting. From the moment I walked in, I was disappointed. The hotel purports to be high end, but is in dire need of a serious face lift. The walls are chipped and cracked. The rooms are shabby, with black mold in between the tiles, smudges on the curtains, and peeling paint in the entry. There were three hangers in the closet - maybe enough for one night, but not for a several day business trip. The swimming pool is filled with green water. The pillows are hard as rocks. The AC was not working in my room, so I tried to sleep with the window open. But with a room on the street, there was loud talking, music, and activity until past 4am making it hard to sleep.
On the plus side, there is free wifi, though you have to ask for a new login and password each time you want to access it. The buffet breakfast was good, though pricey. And there's a small gym in the basement with a very nice staff person to assist you - though the opening hours (8am-9pm) are a bust if you want an early workout, though good if you want to go in the evening
If your expectations are low, you'll be fine. But it does not live up to the name "Palace" nor the 4-star rating, by far.
