smoke filled rooms
This is a very nice hotel, especially if you have time to spend at the pool. They have multiple places to eat and relax. The issue I had is that I prepaid for a NON smoking room, but when I checked in, all they had were smoking rooms. For me, this is a show stopper. The drinks and food are expensive. They do have a coffee shop and bar on the outside of the hotel with more reasonable prices. If you plan to spend the majority of your time out of the hotel in the city, then I would look for a cheaper option.

Nice short break
Very nice hotel. Being a family we stayed in the executive apartments. Much to do inside the hotel, but recommend wasting our (restaurants in the hotel expensive for what they are) Great kiddie pool! Will come again!

Bad experience
I visited this hotel to celebrate my 3rd wedding anniversary with my wife and my 2 years old daughter. We arrived to the hotel at 10:30 pm and because we did not have dinner I asked my wife to go and book a table at SATO ( Japanese Resturant which was recommended by a friend). They did not let her in and they said that they are closed. The fact is that their website says (last order at 11:00pm) so I tried to talk with the hotel reception manager and he did not help at all. Therefore I decided to go by myself and talk with the restaurant manager and show him their website. He was very good man and he let us in and have dinner and they apologized. When I booked the hotel through the website I did a special request which is to prepare the room for our anniversary and bring a baby bed .... we arrived to the room and I was shocked and surprised than my request was not done. It supposed to be a surprise for my wife ... when I complained their answer was “you should have called”. I am not sure who is fault is that, but I have booked more than 20 hotels through this website with special request and didn’t miss any one of them but this one.... I m really disappointed.. I will never visit this hotel again.
