Stayed for 2 nights, July 13-15 recently. 2-room apartment unit 740
My review will be based on the apartment unit and not the hotel unit proper which seems more up-class in terms of finishing and furnishing, however both apartments and hotel guests share the same facilities
This hotel became the official hotel for a recent major cycling event with discounted rates for participants and convenience of the start-finish point being in front of the building sealed the deal for us as the choice.
Booking was hassle-free via phone and no problems there; i booked about 2+ months in advance
The hotel was very new and impressive as we approach the lobby and check-in was swift and smooth too
Parking spots were adequate as they also have 2 storey of basement car parks
The apartment units seemed pretty bare with uncarpeted floors. Kitchenette not well equipped with utensils (only 2 cups and 2 glasses available) , no complimentary coffee/tea sachets as usually found
The 2-room unit was rather spacious and i would say alright for a short 2 nights stay. comfy bed and pillows in both rooms... furniture seems rather cheap and not the lasting durable type
Main grouse was the elevators... only 3 elevators serving 20 floors of apartment units during a peak full-house period was simply frustrating.... many times had to take the stairs up/down from the ground floor to my 7th floor unit
