Stayed 4 nites staff very friendly helpful, close to everything shopping tourist things. Used the pool sauna a lot very clean well maintained. Great gym as well nice equipment. Rooms are roomy no view where I was but no matter. Restaurants nearby very good Vietnamese just round the corner. Expensive hotel but very comfortable
Totally nice, but the bathroom was like fishbowl.
The coffee machine was Nespresso which I love. Cool.
The amenity goods were not my liking because the shampoo and the conditioner were for men.
Location is good: there are BC place, good restaurants and bars. Gas town is also close.
Just booked this hotel for a single night as we were on a tight schedule
I had arranged in advance that, if we had arrived on time they would have stored our luggage if the room wasn’t but, in the event the train was about 5 hours late, so it was only for an hour or so. They were very prompt in their replies to questions
As the room wasn’t ready when we arrived- a little early for check in, we went for a walk, there being no bar in the hotel. Coming back there was a little confusion with the next receptionist still saying the room wasn’t ready, so we waited a while and when I asked again about 15 minutes later, it transpired that it was. The luggage was delivered to the room promptly after I requested it
The room was far better that I had been expecting. It was what I think is described as a loft style room, with a sitting area and the bathroom on the ground floor and the bedroom upstairs. It was extremely spacious, with large flat screen televisions both downstairs and in the bedroom. The bathroom was well appointed with plenty of towels, robes and slippers. One small thing was that the bath toiletries were in a dispenser that was at an ideal height for shower use, but inconvenient for the bath. There was also a fixed glass panel by the bath which must have made cleaning very difficult
There was a nespresso machine with plenty of cartridges. There was also supposed to be a tablet to integrate all electronic devices, but was away for a software update, so I didn’t see that, but wouldn’t have had time to have used it anyhow
The bed was very comfortable and made for a good sleep
We were on the second floor and just down the hall was a business suite which allowed for complimentary document printing, which was ideal for the boarding passes I needed
Also down the corridor was a swimming pool, with steam room and sauna, which I didn’t have time to use, nor the gym, which looked adequately equipped and in use regularly.
Somewhat oddly situated between the gym and the swimming pool was a laundry room with the ice and vending machines. The washers and dryers were complimentary, which was a boon and I did manage to try them out
We didn’t try the hotel for breakfast as we had a fairly early flight, but checkout was quick and smooth
I have to say that I was very surprised and impressed by my stay at this hotel and only wish I could have spent longer
