I've stayed three separate times in the past months on the executive floors at the newly renovated Kerry Hotel. The renovation is spectacular....clean, stylish, comfortable. If readers are anything like me, they appreciate bathROOMS with real doors and privacy rather than having to brush one's teeth in a cubicle in the main room or hassling with closing curtains or blinds to take a shower in privacy. It's wonderful to have light switches that are clearly labeled and simple to operate! Lots of fresh fruit every day and a refrigerator full of free soft drinks and beer. Yes, there are hi-tech touches such as the full-on Japanese toilet that raises its lid in salute when you open the door and flushes itself and closes when you leave. Yes, it's nifty to have a digital clock in the bathroom mirror. But, contrary to many more trendy hotels, these modern touches add to one's comfort rather than make one feel that one is locked in a strange spaceship without an instruction manual.
The food in the executive lounge is the most extensive I have ever seen....anywhere. And it's creative and interesting as well. The whole hotel is modern, high-tech, clean.....and most importantly for a frequent traveler....understandably comfortable!
Oh, yes. Fabulous service from the staff!
Nice going, Kerry!
