Hauling my luggage to the hotel's Sky Lobby @ the 24th Flr, I was easily drawn into its modern contemporary atmosphere. I absolutely loved the new generation chairs/tables/couches, not to mention the beautiful art pieces displayed in the lobby. They looked smashing!
The quite expansive lobby was never intimidating, but rather very welcoming. But what made the experience more worthwhile would have to be the staff. I felt the sincerity and the warmth when they greeted me. The smiles were genuine. One of the staff even offered me a lovely welcome drink and then went on to assist me peronally in my room. FYI, I didn't even book a Club room, but the service shown felt like I did.
The room I've stayed in was just impressive! The room definitely provides a breathing space from the city's hustle and bustle. I felt in love with the room amenities and its thoughtful details. A welcome fruit basket (3 apples), gorgeous Pixie nespresso machine (with complimentary 3 capsules), plush robes, lovely toiletries & bathroom essentials, and of course the immaculate BED! For me, the piece de resistance would have to be the marble tub and the rainshower.
I honestly think it is the best hotel around the area for business and leisure. I've stayed at both hotels that have direct access to malls but IMO, what sets Marco Polo apart is their top notch service and premium amenities offered at competitive rates.
I can't wait to be back! Hopefully by then, the bar and the other food outlets are ready.
