Reading some of the reviews I am either a very undemanding European, or people expect five star plus when only paying four star (and cheap at that). This hotel does just what you should expect it to do. The rooms are clean, tidy and have all the facilities you need for your stay (and mine was a week on business). Wifi is not only free for as many devices as you want, but it's also fast and reliable (too many hotels its either free or good). The staff are very attentive and rapidly get to know your likes for breakfast etc. The food is good and varied - the lunch buffet in particular.
The gym had good equipment and no crowds, the pool is adequate for exercise.
I was running a workshop for four days in the hotel, and the conferencing staff could not do enough - they were very responsive over the slightest item.
Regarding location - every conceivable shopping and food experience is within easy reach it is on the right side of town for the airport. Yes, it is a walk to the sky train, if you want to be next door to the train station then stay at the St Regis, Grand Hyatt or the Kempinski - and yes they are all five star and much more expensive.
