This hotel is definitely a good/great hotel if you can book the competitive rates or cash in SPG points. The hotel is pretty central to local shopping and places to eat. Great view from the rooms. One of the best values of the hotel (if you have SPG Platinum) is the breakfast. The breakfast buffet options were by superb. Lots of choices, all excellent quality, fresh juices and fruits, really well prepared, and very clean. Absolutely worth it, and if you have to pay, I still think it is worth it. We also dined at the Chinese restaurant and that wasn't too bad either.
Two things I didn't so much care for: the check in lobby is not on the ground floor. You need to take an elevator up to get to the hotel lobby (I think it was on 12 or 17). This really made it confusing sometimes on which elevator to take to get to your room or just get out of the hotel... The other thing that bothered us (stayed at the hotel 4 different times now) is the A/C. The A/C while cooling seemed to do nothing for the humidity. So the room, your clothing, etc. always felt really damp and sometimes just smelled damp. I think this is a huge problem because every time I have stayed here during the summer months it has been this way.
Other that that, hotel was good.
