    • Liked: Cleanliness

    Overall the staff are friendly and helpful but the hotel needs to pay more attention to details. They messed up my luggage with others which surprise me. Though I understand that there are many departures and arrivals in one day, this is something that a hotel should not be messed up. The DM and Concierge was quick in response when I complained.

    This property is beautiful. It took a over an hour to get a spa me it sent to the room which was a little frustrating and the shower stall is very small...standing in the middle I looked up to the water to rinse my face and banged my head on a corner of the wall behind me. Very weird placement and extremely painful so keep mind of the space. They give slippers which was a great bonus and the ambiance of the room was delightful. The breakfast had so many choices! As Chinese New Year is approaching the hotel is decorated beautifully!!!! I would highly recommend making sure you can view sunset if possible, it’s gorgeous. So other than the very hurt head it was a great experience. I stayed at the le meridian other day and I like this property a lot better. It’s a bit further out from the main city, but not bad.
