The hotel lobby was large expansive - it felt like I was staying in a high end shopping mall. The room was average - nothing to write home about.
The hostess at Yi cafe acted as if she were doing me a favor by answering question on breakfast. Not a good start. But it turned out that she was the only one. Other hostesses at the other restaurants were more hospitable.
In catching a cab, there is a taxi queue, however, it is not well controlled. There was confusion on who was supposed to be next in line for cab.
The hotel is located next to the SuperBrands Mall - We are talking HUGE mall -- local restaurants are found on each of the floors.
You are in walking distance to the Orient Pearl TV tower and the aquarium.
Overall - nice, but don’t understand why this is a top hotel in many categories, particularly the room.
