Hotel was impressive when we stepped it. Staffs were courteous all the time. Rooms were smaller than expected (for the price that I paid), but overrall was great and spacious with the awesome oceanview, could see sunset, and sundown every night. Room service was great, except for the last couple of days, clothes were not folded but just pushed aside. I assume bathtub was scrubbed daily (stepped into room twice as room was cleaned and tub was been scrubbed). Unlike the first reviewer, I didn't get fruits daily, it was brought one time only, but who cares. Pool had a distinct smell, worse than our gym pool (it was chlorine + something else). It was a nice rooftop pool, but not deep enough to feel like you were swimming like a pro. Towels were replaced everyday but with just enough to use for the day (no extras). Only twice in withing the hotel, food was alright. Breakfast buffet was not good at all, omelette looked like a scrambled egg, food just wasn't great. Hotel may seem far away from everywhere, but if you walk straight from the hotel entrance, you will find lots of shops and eateries. There is also a laundry shop about 2 minutes walk and they charge cheaper than the hotel (about $10 for a pair of pants). Free shuttle bus from the shopping center to tsim sha tsui was available every 30 min from 7am-11:30pm. Despite all those complaints, I had a pleasant stay, the service was great, enjoyed their amenities and I felt like home. I would recommend this hotel, everyone's experience is different. It's great, trust me. I would go back.
