Food was below standard

Exceptional 10.0
It was great and since I am a rewards member I got to stay on the Exec floor. Only issue was noise from some air-condition control or so outside my room door. Otherwise stay was fantastic.

Very Good 8.0
Hotel ok, staff nice, shuttle not guaranteed
I was here for a week long stay for a conference at the CTICC. This hotel is not within walking distance of the CTICC. There is a shuttle service that will drop off at the sister hotel, the Cullinan and you can walk to the CTICC. The hotel is older in decor and furnishings than Western hotels, however it was clean and nicely appointed. Bed is very comfortable. The bottle of wine and handwritten note in my room on arrival was a welcomed gesture. Pros: Most of the staff were nice. Ahmed, Gerald, Lucky, and Neil (older gentleman) were very nice and took great care of us during our stay. Breakfast had many options and was overall very good each morning. There is a candy cabinet, not sure when it's open, but it is open some evenings. Cons: the shuttle service is VERY inconsistent. Highly disappointing. We were informed that the shuttle would take us to/from the Waterfront. The first night we stood in the area where we were instructed for over 30 min and a shuttle never showed. We had to pay for a taxi. The guy at concierge Henry was unapologetic for this inconvenience and made no attempt to correct the issue. Management never attempted to correct this either. Twice more during our stay the shuttle was not present and we had to pay for tranportation back to the hotel. Be forwarned that if the shuttle is full, they will leave early and there will be no other attempts to transport you. Hotel was good, shuttle horrible. I will stay elsewhere on future visits.

Exceptional 10.0
The staff was very polite to us last week, especially considering there were a lot of people coming in that week for a conference. All the service we received was perfect and spot on, although sometimes I worried that the gentlemen calling the elevators for us might not have been washing his hands. My only regret is that we could only stay a couple of days.
