You get what you pay for and what you may expect in a name brand. Price is on the expensive side for Siem Reap, however, it is on par with an averagehotel (e.g. Holiday Inn, Best Western) in the U.S.
The service at the front desk is great, sometimes there is live music playing in the adjacent bar and people open doors for you everywhere and greet you by name. The breakfast buffet is expensive, but quite hearty and a good splurge item. I was able to eat a big enough breakfast to hold me over until dinner time after I got back from a whole day at Angkor Wat. Awesome juices!The hotel is not too far from the main downtown and restaurant strip or the various temples of Angkor Wat by taxi or tuk tuk. However, it is not walking distance.
The pool is great and the room is fantastic. People commented quite often on the bed/pillow "firmness," but I thought it was just fine. For me, the most important aspect is cleanliness and the place is well maintained. Mini fridge, tv, bathroom were all fine and a gift of macaroons was a nice touch.
I also got a massage while I was here. It was a great massage with nice amenities (tea, cookies), but the prices are similar to what you would see in NYC. I had no complaints about the massage, but there are a ton of other places that are much cheaper and equally good.
