i just spent a weekend night here. as many reviewers already mentioned, this is a very convenient location for shopping, restaurants, and connection to almost anywhere in the city. because of this ideal location, the public area of the hotel is full of people every time i walked through. i checked out the kitchen place at the lobby floor one morning and it was super super crowded. the breakfast buffet look delicious but i am not sure about lining up at every food station. my room had a great view of mountains and half of taipei 101, a spectacular view still. i love the functional bathroom lay-out with the water controller on its own wall. though i thought the space could have been more well utilized as the lobby area was very spacious while bedroom area a little cramp. during my stay there was a promotional happy hours designated for gold/platinum members where ones can enjoy unlimited drinks at the 31st floor lounge. they also brought me a dish of baguettes, cold cuts, and cheese. so that was a nice touch. i had a problem during my stay with the room across the hallway having a huge party late into the night. i had a peek into their room when both doors were open at the same time. they must had packed at least 20 people in there. every time their door open and even with my door closed i could hear a cacophonic burst of loud music and people talking. normally i don't complain about the noise as long as they stop before bed time ~ 10pm but the party was still on-going past midnight. at 1am i could not sleep and had to make a complain to the front desk staff. the party did slow down a little after that. i did get a good night sleep - thanks to a very comfortable mattress and great great bedding. in the morning i received a letter apologizing for the noise along with an offer of coffee or energy juice. so i thought that was a nice come back. but still this kind of crowd should not be allowed in one room, especially at a high end hotel. in spite of this problem, i think this hotel deserves high praises for its location, design, and efficient staff. will i come back? only if i get a high floor room with a full taipei 101 view and my neighbors are quiet!
