I was confused in which hotel to stay, and what had finally pulled me towards Sheraton was "the most exotic pool among city hotels in Asia". Tend to agree. Great large river-like open air pool surrounded by exotic plants so that you hardly can see the sky and for sure do not see the scy scrappers surronding Sheraton - what a fantastic solution! I stayed there at the very end of my business trip to SEA and was very exhausted, so the pool was the main thing I was so happy about.
About the rooms. Spacious, with a small room for your clothes and luggag and a great bathroom including both bathtub and tropical shower. I do not like carpets in hot countries as this does not let your bare feet fully relax and forces you to wear slippers. Though fine for the rest, if you like business style of the rooms. I saw the pictures of the rooms on the hotel's web site, so it was an intended sacrifice towards the pool :)
Service was fine, nice friendly staff, though nothing extra.
I tried thai massage in their spa - very good. Spacious rooms, very comfortable massage beds, good quality of massage itself, though 10 times more expensive compared with the salons in the city. But I simply was too tired to go anywhere out of the hotel, so believe that was a good value for money.
Breakfast - ok, standard for this level of hotels. Nice that you have a choice to have your breakfast in the pool area which other city hotels can never offer.
Location - ok, but no chance to get anywhere unless you take a taxi. And mind rush hours - the avenue is completely blocked.
Highly recommend if you plan to spend some time in the hotel, especially if you simply need to relax, and don't mind the price. Marriott Suits seemd to have similar facilities but the price offered was significantly higher. As for the value for money, Sheraton is the winner here. If you need just a place to spend a night, then better choose a cheaper option.
