We had the pleasure of staying in this newly renovated hotel at the tail-end of an all-Taiwan tour. Although we had been lodged in Taiwan's best hotels in every city we visited, nothing could compare with the Shangri-La Far Eastern Plaza Hotel. Everything was 5-star luxury. From the helpful and polite doormen to the efficient attendants in the coffee shop, we were well-pampered through and through.
My father (aka The Old Curmudgeon) was very impressed with the training of the Housekeeping staff. He broke a glass in the washroom and called Housekeeping to ask for clean-up. He also wanted to warn them about the glass shards that the maid might encounter during regular room maintenance. The first response of the Housekeeping rep? She asked if my father was hurt or needed any medical assistance. What excellent and personal service!
We looked forward every day to the breakfast buffet. It offered a great selection of Western and Chinese dishes, including some upscale versions of typical Taiwanese breakfast food. We didn't have a chance to try any of the other hotel restaurants since we were too busy enjoying places like the famous original Ding Tai Fung not far away (T $18 by taxi). There's a shopping centre attached to the hotel and a 711 convenience store down the block.
