This hotel is amazing. It is simple as this.
I stayed there for one week on business early December 2013 and enjoyed a river view room on the 41st floor. The room is gorgeous with a really nice view to the river and skyscrapers, a huge bathroom, free-standing bath tube and a lot of space. TV and AC are working fine, lights are controlled with a master automation system.
As I enjoyed airport pickup I was announced five minutes before arriving into the hotel and enjoyed a very friendly greeting. My host directly brought me to my room (no check in procedure in the lobby) and my luggage was delivered shortly after.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff continued throughout my stay. Whenever I looked lost or around in the lobby I was approached by someone asking me if I need help or directions. The breakfast staff greeted my with my name after the second day and were looking after me. I felt like a superstar or king every single day.
Restaurants were nice and offered a vast range of interesting food. From Chinese to European, including jelly fish dishes and other more exotic things. Service was very good.
Room was surprisingly quite - not any noise from neighbours at one side, below or on top. Nothing. You sleep so much better if there is TV sound through the walls and no voices on the corridor. Perfect.
The only issue I faced during my stay was the light control stay - which controlled everything except the toilet room and the bathroom lights. Often I was asleep in my bed and had to stay up again to turn of the lights...
Apart of this, it was the most pleasant stay I have experienced in the last 10 years of business travel around the globe. For sure I will come back.
