I stayed at this hotel as I had to be in the area. One thing about the hotel is it is BIG and it has the feel of a very large hotel. But the service remains very good. Staff are very helpful and try very hard to please and show hospitality - person standing by the elevators to show you which way to walk. Greet and smile as you enter. Lots of door openings etc.
Quite nice, modern and reasonably spacious rooms.
The executive rooms are modern and seem recently renovated
Free wifi internet
Courteous, friendly and always helpful staff
Room very quiet
Being big, there can be a delay checking in and out as lines can gather, but they have plenty of front staff to address this
Bit difficult to get a simple breakfast. If you just want a coffee and croissant you still have to order the full buffet at approx USD40
Bit pricier than the nearby hotels which don't seem much different (by looking at the reviews)
Still has some very old fittings like the electronic door lock - which broke and kept me locked out for a couple of hours (to their credit they were very helpful and offered drinks vouchers)
Pity the outdoor pool is not heated.
They could supply another bottle or two of water, or invite you to call for more free water.
TIPS: order the hotel car service for travel to and from airport. Not expensive and the car HAS SEATBELTS unlike the taxis!
Go for a walk into the neighbouring community suburbs - if you are an overseas visitor this is truly a fascinating experience.
Will I come back?
Yes - I am back next weekend.
