There's major construction taking place at this famed property in Kalaw. Unfortunately I got assigned a room in the new 600-series. They're not done with stickers still on bathroom fixtures and some details needing to be addressed - like the lack of a lip on the shower floor which caused flooding all over the bathroom any time it was used. It seems that this flaw was already known as there were towels under the sink on the floor (that made no sense when I first arrived) that were ready to be deployed. Rooms are large and the renovation - though contemporary, seems completely out of line with the feel and integrity of historic nature of the hotel.
We were told that construction would take place between 8am and 6pm but that wasn't honored - and worse, it takes place 20 feet from the rooms in this area. Be forewarned, you might want to avoid the 100-series rooms as well, as they also look out on the construction site.
I'm sure that this is a lovely hotel, but during this moment in time, be careful which room you get. Disappointed that the management team would allow this kind of thing to happen.More
