    Having stayed there before and giving excellent review, I decided to stay again due to location, the hotel now has new premium rooms on the club floor, I upgraded to one of these rooms and was not dissapointed, the room offered everything for the business traveller. Beautiful hotel would recomend to anyone.

    Clean.

    From car park to reception is a horror of a maze passing through closed shops etc. Hotel got my NAME and GENDER wrong. You guys should work on how you transmit the data to the hotel staffs.

    Exclusive

    As we could not check in immediately as we had arrived too early and the previous occupants were still in the room, the hotel gave us complimentary drinks at the Garden Cafe to chill at while we waited for the occupants to vacant the room. The receptionist was also very kind in asking us to leave our bags with the porter so that we did not have to lug it around with us. Upon arriving at our rooms, our bags were sent up.The rooms are very up-to-date with all the electronics fully linked to a system beside the bed. That way, we could control everything without even getting out of bed. ;) We could even listen to the TV from the toilet as there is a radio in the toilet linked to the TV. =)

    There was only one hiccup in the whole stay, and that was when we checked out. The Garden Cafe had mistakenly billed breakfast to our room for 1 day even though we did not have breakfast the 3 days we were there. But it was alright because the receptionist told us that they would settle it internally, and did not make us stick around to help sort matters out .And I really have to commend the receptionist there, a nice Indian man who still had a smile for us even though he had been working from morning. Very good service. Beautiful stay. Will definitely be going back there. =) By the way, we had a free upgrade to Deluxe Room. ;)
