They say that first impressions are important, well this hotels first impression was one of oppulance & luxury. The entrance lobby is huge with a large enough desk to deal with a large influx of guests. It is so clean the simile about eating off the floor comes to mind & the air has a scent of citrus about it all making the ambiance very relaxing.
We arrived at 10.00 in the morning& were able to check into our room straight away, a great advantage after a 12 hour night flight. After a relaxing & refreshing swim in the lovely pool we were ready to explore. But first a quick word about he pool, it is outdoor with lovely views of Clark quay & quite importantly at a temperature that is very pleasant. It has a pool bar where you can get delicious snacks , coffee & fantastic cocktails. Next to the pool there is a small but well equiped fitness suite & like everything in this hotel it is immaculate. The roms are spacious with all the conveniances you axpect from a four star hotel (fridge, Tea/Coffee making, internet connection etc)
The hotel is situated in a perfect position for The Bum boat tours, plus all the fabulous restaurants on Clark Quay & Boat Quay. The hotel does have two top end dining restaurants but I can't comment on them as we ate out on the Quays the 3 nights we were there, but the menu's did look good.
If you are doing a flight stopover as we did this hotel is ideal for quality & position.
