We hadn't realized this was such a grand hotel when we booked it on Expedia. Having been staying in mainly boutique hotels on our current trip, we had enerally steered clear of the bigger chain style places. However - we were really delighted to have a bit of luxury around us for the las few nights of our one month abroad. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite, the hotel is very clean, and the room (we had to upgrade to a deluxe in order to get a big bed, rather than twin beds - which was the only negative surprise) was spacious and well equipped. The bathroom was great / funny - as it had the flashest electronic toilet I have ever seen, but also a crazy bath with a window in to the bedroom and out over the city.
The only downside was no wifi in the rooms - had to go to the lobby for that.
Well located near a metro stop, and rot in the shopping district. Good massage places nearby (I went to Samos), and good bars and restaurants on a kind of groovy street two streets back - Jinxian Road.
As per all other comments - the breakfasts were impressive.
Great spot. We paid about $250NZD per night.
