I attended a conference in Taipei and the hotel was chosen from the conference host. The location is very good. The airport bus drops you off at the opposite side of the hotel and the bus stop to the airport is next to the MRT station which is very near. The place is quiet (I got the room at the rear section). The room is clean. You can just walk to the MRT and it will take you anywhere in Taipei with 20-25 TWD.
I arrived on my birthday around 23.30. After checking in, a hotel staff was knocking on my door to say happy birthday and give me a present. And the next two days after I came back from the conference. An operator called to say happy birthday (again!) and brought a cake to my room !!
I was very impressed on how they pay so well attention.
Overall, I really like this hotel. The only downside is their breakfast. I agree with previous comments that the breakfast is quite tasteless. I had it at the first morning and skipped them for the rest of my stay (I stayed there 5 nights). The hotel should attempt to improve the quality of breakfast as the issue keeps recurring. Anyway, my colleagues were fine with the breakfast, though they didn't find it impressive.
