We were in Kaohsiung as part of an American-Taiwan wedding party. Overall this was a very pleasant place to stay for people who know only a few words of Chinese.
The customer service was excellent. Concierge and check-in/check-out services were very good. When I had trouble with the free Wi-Fi, Max helped me obtain an in-room access point, which met my needs. The location and view of the city was excellent from our room on the 60th floor. There were retail stores on the first floor and many on the street nearby, including the ubiquitous Seven Eleven. Free fruit in the room, and always extreme courtesy.
My dislikes were minor:
• It does not appear to be that old, but our bathroom could have used some updates.
• There was no way to eat breakfast or lunch a la carte (had to use room service), and the buffet, though it looked to be of excellent quality, exceeded our breakfast preferences and was too expensive for coffee and toast only.
• The lobby is on the 39th floor, which means two elevators to your room, though this was not really that bad unless you are in a hurry or really tired.
