We stayed 3 nights at the Angkor Pearl Hotel - booked the Apsara suite. The room was nice and the service was excellent. My girlfriend had a birthday during the trip, and after discussing the details with Peter (the directing manager), the staff was able to throw us a nice surprise!
Other pluses included the nice breakfast and the cheap drinks at the bar during happy hour.
The hotel had a couple of power outages early in the morning when we were there, which definitely pushed us out of bed to explore Siem Reap.
We visited Angkor Wat for two days, which was an amazing experience. Mr. Kun was our tuktuk driver was friendly and patient with our wanderings, and the temples were a treat. He kept us well supplied with wet wipes and cold water and knew some great lunch places. His driving made the trip felt safe and comfortable.
The highlights were definitely Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom. The third day, we took boat ride to Chong Khneas, a floating village in Tonle Sap Lake - which we don't recommend as it's a bit pricey for what you get and we encountered a school donation scam.
Overall the hotel was wonderful and a great value. Would definitely recommend a stay for your Siem Reap visit.
