We picked this hotel for our honeymoon mainly on price, but also due to the fact it has a comedy club and a spa. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations.
The lobby is fairly recently refurbished but as soon as you get into the lifts you realise that the renovations stopped on the ground floor. We had an executive king suite on the 25th floor, which was outdated and a bit grubby. There were small rips and chips in the furniture, the coffee machine leaked, the paint was scuffed and and marked, the tiles were chipped and cracked, the tap in the bathroom was loose from the wall and the room wasn't very clean. The single glazed windows let in all the city noise and the outdated 'tube' style tv wasn't set to view widescreen images (very annoying). These are all things that wouldn't bother me in my own home, but considering the price that I payed for the room I expected it to be nicer. The decor could do with being updated, and all the furnishings replaced.
However the room was huge, view from our balcony was great, the bed was comfortable and the location was good. This could be a fantastic hotel if you redecorated the rooms.
I visited the spa whilst staying here. It was good if a little overpriced. The mix comedy club was also good. The pool was nice, however it also could do with a little tlc. Seeing that these were the things I booked the hotel for I didn't actually use them very much. I probably wouldn't prioritise these the next time I'm booking a hotel.
Overall we tried not to spend a lot of time in our room during our stay. I feel for the condition of the room we could have got a cheaper hotel, or a nicer hotel for the same price. This hotel would be good for a bunch of friends staying together, or maybe a family. Unfortunately it was not a nice hotel for a romantic getaway. I would not book this hotel again.
