Perhaps my expectations were lowered by previous reviews; perhaps only government emissaries stay here (it is across from the Union Buildings and there appear to be few other reasons to come here), or perhaps management shaped up following those reviews, but this hotel far exceeded my hopes. Check-in was efficient and polite. I would definitely try to get upgraded to the club floors. We were placed on the 7th (top) floor (Starwood Gold) in a large corner room (718) with magnificent views towards the Union Buildings/Park and Church Street east. The lounge is elegant and quiet, and those on the club floors are offered complimentary internet (230Mb limit, but you can ask for more). The outdoor pool area is pretty enough and the fitness room is small but adequate. As mentioned by others, the minibar items are free (there are no hard liquor items) but I forgot this till the last day and guzzled two beers before I left. The Union Buildings park is lovely, great for a walk, and while you can't actually tour the buildings, there is a small market consisting of stalls selling costume jewelry, wood crafts and other souvenirs for what I thought were pretty reasonable prices. Not far from the hotel is a pizza shop called "Roman's" (Tel [--]) on the corner of Church and Hamilton. They don't deliver, but you can walk there, pick up your pizza and salad, bring them to the lounge and enjoy with a bottle of red wine. Anyway, the hotel and service appear to have shaped up considerably.
