Booked online at the accorhotels website and checked in late evening Sunday. Although my first stay in that hotel, it was probably the most perfect check-in I ever experienced. Handled by the Assistant Manager himself, straight to room, sign on registration card, take down CC particulars, and there I was to enjoy that gorgeous Exexutive Club room with plenty of "compimentary goodies" like gooseliver set, mango creations, nice bottle of French wine, Mango Rum Liquor, fruits and flowers. The Sofitel signature "MyBed" was such a joy to crash out... I miss it so much from earlier visits to other Sofitels.
The nest surprise was the breakfast in Club Millesime an 10th floor... the lovely "Mabuhay" service with genuine smiles and perfect breakfast service... what a way to start a business day at 7am.
Back at the hotel later in afternoon... a refreshing swim at the freestyle swimming pool in the large landscaped garden was nice, followed by 20 minutes jogging in the So-Fit gym, which has the latest LifeFitness equipment...
Again back at Club Millesime for evening snacks and wine... the culinary details (not to mention the same lovely service) were out of this world, nice morsels served individually... but I loved the variety of cheese and salami etc. There is no way to have dinner after such an Aperitif...
Did not have time to explore the other facilities yet... but Housekeeping deserves another mention... perfect and spotless service all day, inclusive a perfect turndown service.
My adimiration to that hotel, its wonderful hospitable associates and to the management... REALLY NICE!!!
