Staycation at the Big Skyroom - Room No. 5.
The official check-in time is 3pm. We arrived at the lobby at 3.30pm and the reception said that the room was not done and required an additional 20 min. The room was only ready at 4pm. The receptionist who checked in for us kept greeting me, Mr April. The salutation was wrong in the booking form but I'm fine with that. However, when he called out "Mr April", I went up to the desk and he still addressed me as MR. April. It is disappointing to know that the staff didn't know how to adjust according to situation. But I noticed that it was only that male staff. When we checked out, Ms Shakira attended to us and quickly addressed me as "Miss April".
Room - Very clean. Huge windows with a loft desk. The baht tub was large enough for 2 persons. Initially, the water wasn't hot enough. Called the recept and was once again greeted as MR. April, the service was prompt.
Sound proofing is not so good. When we were soaking in the bath tub (located outside the room), we could hear chattering and even the sound of running water from the tap. We could also hear the banging of the other doors. TV was less than idea. It's 32 inch but the screen is poor for a $228++ a night stay. We visited other same price category hotel range, many have HD TVs as the basic.
Comfort level - Bed is awesome. The bed was Serta Royal Pillow Top. One of the best beds that I've ever slept on (have not tried Heavenly Bed yet). The room was very serene at night. Surrounding neighbourhood is very quiet but heavily guarded. Behind Lloyd's Inn stayed a politician with 4 guards in and outside of the residence. Safety definitely not an issue.
Location - Superb! 7 minutes walk to either Somerset or Douby Ghaut.
All in all, I think it is an above average stay.
