Booked their high priced but very nice Benz service pick up from the airport. Driver was waiting for me an we got on the road and to the hotel quickly. Car had nice rec.lining electric seats in the rear. Cost was 2600TWD vs.1200 for a run of the mill Taxi that I took returning to airport. Much more comfortable and probably safer.
Check in was very quick, efficient and friendly. Got a room on the 11th floor (SPG floor). I asked for a late check out an they said I could check out at 4:00PM since I was a SPG member. Hotels rarely allow this late of a checkout so I give them big points for this.
Upon entering, the room had quite a musty mold/mildew smell. I should have requested another room since last time I had a room that smelled this way at another property (not Sheraton) I ended up with a respiratory infection. I think the HVAC system needed maintenance as it struggled to keep the room cool as well. Overall a decent sized room, everything well maintained and clean. There were 4 complimentary bottles of water, which was a nice touch. Also free internet (also because I think I was registered as a SPG) which worked well w/o any password hassle. The hotel has an interior atrium going all the way up to the top floor, similar to many of the Hyatt hotels. Thus some noise from the restaurants on the main floor carries, but not too bad. Overall a reasonably quiet room. The bed comfort was not the best but not horrible either.The bathroom was up to date with separate shower (that leaked due to a bad door seal) and tub. My main issue with the bathroom is that the lighting was very dim - not what you want for bathroom lighting. Note that the restaurants all close at 9:30 (last order), so only the bar serves food after that. Overall a very nice property.
