My sister had a wedding reception in Pullman (12/7) so we booked 4 rooms for our immediate family on the night of the wedding.
I booked 1 executive suite and 3 executive deluxe suite room. To our delight, all rooms were upgraded to executive suites so that's a nice pleasant surprise.
The cost of the room is between $213 - $350 per night. Is it worth it? I guess so, hence the 4 stars.
As far as my impression of the hotel, I had a mixed feeling. Maybe I'm not so much of a modern/contemporary person. I've had enjoyed my stays in modern looking hotels before (Hongkong Langham Place Hotel or W or hotel Vitale in SF). I found that some of the elements are just not fitting. It has some industrial and modern decor all throughout but some are a bit pretentious (i.e: the bathroom door near the lobby, it doesn't have handle. While I was there, an elderly woman had difficulty of opening the door). All in all, the decor was a bit cold.
We were put on the 1st level for the 4 rooms and it ended up to be the best floor IMO. It's next to the spa so the hallway smell really nice. My sister wasn't so lucky, she spent 2 nights in executive suites as part of the wedding package and had to move twice (first on the 8th floor then 13th floor before I finally requested her to be moved back to the 1st floor on her second night). The main reason was because the AC was broken (8th floor). Second, they put her in the smoking room (13th floor) even though we requested over and over again for no smoking room. The smoking room is terrible for non smoker. Your eyes started to get wattery the minute you stepped in the hallway.
But all small annoyances aside, the location of this hotel is really good. Jakarta can get very stuffy, polutted, and congested but the Central Park area is actually pleasant. You can walk around the tribeca park and enjoy a bit of fresh air outside the hotel. The mall adjacent to the hotel is also very nice and new. My niece and nephew enjoyed their time there and the ability to run around the park. There are a slew of restaurants on the side, I tried some of them and they are quite good. I even found a nice cozy wine bar tucked in the corner of the tribeca park.
The buffett in the hotel is OK. I guess I constantly compare to Mulia Hotel buffett and given this one is a lot cheaper (in fact, we got it as part of the room) then it's fine. Not the best in Jakarta but not disappointing. Fair selection of Indonesian and International cuisines.
The staff is a bit mixed. I love on how prompt the service is when we call the front desk (i.e: to repair the AC) but I also got a bit annoyed on my sister's incident where I feel it's kind of ruined her wedding night (AC broken, smoking room instead of non smoking room, etc).
Well there is a room for improvement but overall, I still recommend this hotel esp for my non Indonesian friend. The location can't be beat and the complex that it's in still a lot pleasant compared to Senayan (where Mulia hotel is) or kuningan (Hyatt, Fours Seasons, Ritz, etc).
As far as the spa, it's a lot cheaper to other spas such as Ritz and Four Seasons. I got a massage while I was there, while the massage is nice and good, the service is not of a premier spa. They didn't take me to the locker room or showed me around of the facility. I always enjoy steam in the spa but the steam didn't even work and I was the only person in the steam room/locker. But the plus is that the spa doesn't charge a lot. It's cheaper to go to day spa in the mall but it's convenient to get massage inside the hotel if you stay there.
