We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment which was cold and impersonal and not very clean. There was still trash left in one of the trash bins! We had no view, overlooking a big construction site, and I believe that construction will soon start which will produce dust and noise. So beware and ask on which side you will be placed.
Marwan who checked us in though was very personable and friendly. He followed by a phone call and the next day by inquiring if we needed anything.
But beware if you need to eat in the hotel, the hotel thai, one of the few outlets, was very pricey! An ordinary meal for 3 adults and 2 children ended up costing us over USD300! Definetely not value for money especially served in a cafeteria like decor and atmosphere.
Finally the check out was somewhat annoying as they claimed that they couldn't extend until 2 pm without a lot of checking back, explaining etc and in the end, the Manager did come through but reluctantly. It is certainly not what we would expect of a 5 star property such as the Ritz Carlton.
