Hotel is near train and bus station so easy accesses to and from airport. Also shopping and restaurants. Room was huge for Asian standards, in fact even for American standards. One way I judge cleanliness is in the bathroom and mine was spotless. Room was very comfortable in all aspects. Large flat screen TV with good channel selection, comfortable bed and linens, large work desk and nice appointments.
The gym here is really one of the best I have seen in any hotel in the world. Set up like a professional gym not some half attempt hotel gym. Included an Olympic size lane lap pool and I mean Olympic! You could have competitions here. Really amazing work out facilities for the fit traveler.
I dined at the Italian restaurant downstairs and the food was very good. Again most hotel dinning leaves something to be desired particularly one serving European fare. Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their particular selections.
The only reason I did not rate this a 5 is because the service while very good was not excellent. And this being the higher end JW property I would expect that level of service. I really had no issues and everyone was professional. But for example I have had better service at the Marriott Resort and Spa in Pattaya, Swiss Hotel in Osaka and the Mandarin Oriental in Manila. I have also had poor service at comparable hotels in NYC, Los Angeles and Hawaii. I am being picky here, its the smile, the subtle graciousness the small nuances that were missing that make a 5 star hotel service.
So the property rates a 5+ and the service 4+.
