Channel view hotel is not near a channel.
1. Staff. Very friendly and welcoming each day as we left and returned from meetings. Room did not have carpet and were cleaned daily. Other reviews stated issues with items being stolen, we have several armed military guards patrolling the grounds so that helped the staff to re-think removing items that did not belong to them.
2. Rooms. Dated rooms that provided a firm night's sleep. Flat screen TVs in each room with satellite service. Safe that could fit a 15 inch MacBook and other items were available for use. CAUTION about the hot water heater and bath tub!!! The hot water heater is grounded to pipes and to the tub. If you start the water and check the temperature while barefoot than you will get a 220volt shock. Either turn the water heater off via a wall switch outside the bathroom or start the water once in the tub. The shower is not really a shower since the sprayer hose has about a 1 meter length, so you will need to take a knee or sit down.
3. Grounds. Breakfast was included in our rate and either a buffet or menu service was provided each morning. Just make sure you have time because the orders can take from 15-45 minutes. WIFI was available in all rooms but can be slow while a lot of users on online. Calabar will loose power and the hotel has a backup generator so I would recommend a small flashlight.
Pool with bar. A small pool with bar is available nightly and bar staff is friendly and plays music.
Night club. A medium size nightclub is connected to the hotel and is busy on Wednesday and Friday nights.
Shawarma stand in the parking lot with beef, chicken, and pork wraps.
Pastry shop with meat and chicken pies and break for everybody. Easy to get a bottle of water or soda and open all hours of the day.
