It is a nice hotel and my stay was a pleasant one. In most rooms you can find both a Queen-size bed and a Super Single. They even have a rain shower in the bathroom! Complimentary bottles of water are provided during your stay.
The rooms are generally clean, the bed is comfortable and the staff are friendly. However, just note that if the hotel is running at 98% capacity and there is a conference taking place in the hotel, the wait for the lifts can be a painful experience especially during meal times as the lifts are slow to arrive and cannot take too many people else they will fail. Each tower has only 4 lifts serving the guest rooms. I stayed on the 14th floor and I remember having waited 25 minutes for the lift on one night and they were always full by the time the lift doors opened on my floor, thus I gave up and headed for the fire exit.
Unless you are on a shopping trip, there is nothing much to do in this area but I must say that it is convenient to have a shopping mall and cineplex connected to the hotel.
