I was actually booked at the sister hotel, Pearl City Hotel, but as I arrived late, "there was no room at the inn." They moved me to the Pearl Grand Hotel next door. Much to my delight, it was an upgrade. Though when I got there, I hit the bed, and woke up extra early to get the train to Kandy.
Though I stayed only a short time, the room was nice and comfortable. It was quite modern and a nice location. After my flight, I did walk around the neighborhood to Majestic Center (which was closed), but the neighborhood seemed quite nice.
The bellman was quite nice. He offered to arrange my wake-up call (but had my own clock) and my transportation in the morning to Fort Railway Station. In the morning, he hailed me a tuk tuk. FYI, it cost me 300 rupees (US$2.25) to Fort Railway Station.More
