I stayed on the 10th floor - I've read a review suggesting rooms below the 8th floor are not so good but a colleague was on the 3rd and seemed to find it fine. Certainly my room including the bathroom was clean and well maintained. The bed was really comfortable. The windows were large and offered a great view. Unfortunately when working with a laptop in the evenings I suffered many wifi signal outages which was a real handicap, and the room lighting was not really planned with laptop users in mind. Both were surprising failings in a hotel which must aim to get a fair number of business travellers. But at least internet access from the room was free.
The gym was fairly well equipped and apparently open 24 hours, which is useful, and on a morning I couldn't sleep proved to offer a helpful diversion at 6am. The terrace restaurant food was good and plentiful although service could be variable. The staff were friendly and willing. Worth noting that room service dining options were pretty good and no more expensive.
The piano bar was pleasant with good cocktails but many people also stopping for tea. I didn't try the Equator bar. At the weekend that did get really busy and the music could get loud. Fortunately my room wasn't affected by that.
There is a facility to change money in the shopping arcade in the hotel and rates seemed reasonable. For UK travellers worth noting that Sterling seemed just as accepted as US Dollars. For the latter the rate improved when changing denominations from upwards of US$50 but older (before 2000?) US$100 notes were not accepted there.
