Good hotel for business
I stayed here fr one night while visiting a client in Penang. The actual hotel is quite nice with sparkling up-to-date rooms with a view of the city and surrounding hills. The staff was very nice, and the concierge arranged a car to take me to and from dinner in Georgetown (about a 20 min drive from the hotel) the night I checked in. My only issue came around transportation the following morning. I had arranged a taxi to bring me to my meeting the next day when I checked in. However, when I arrived in the morning no one seemed to know what I was talking about and there was no cab available. They called another taxi right then, but it took about 10 minutes, so I ended up being a few minutes late to my client. Not the best first impression I was hoping for.

Excellent hotel and getaway from the bustling city
I really enjoyed this hotel. It was close to the airport and the staff was very helpful. Although my trip was for business, once at the hotel, I enjoyed a feel of vacation. The hotel has a beautiful pool and excellent fitness center. Also, I took advantage of the hotel's late check out policy. For a reasonable fare, I was able to stay in the room until my evening departure.

Comfortable Stay
The hotel staffs were very professional. I had requested for an extra bed but the extra bed was not there when I arrived even though front desk told me that it was already placed. When I called them, they were apologetic and sent the bed to my room almost immediately. The day after we checked out, my brother realised he left a few t-shirts in the hotel. We called the hotel and they located the t-shirts very quickly and packed them properly for our collection very soon after we called. The hotel also provided shuttle services to nearby malls. So that's good for people who don't drive. The room was very comfortable too.

Bathroom accessories should be checked regularly
Conditions of the toilet flushing system and shower screen should be checked regularly for proper maintenance. The room that I stayed in,both were unfortunately not in good condition. water was everywhere below the basin after each shower.
