Very Good8.0
The staff were friendly. The rooms were clean and tidy. Breakfast was a good spread. The location is fantastic, adjoining a huge shopping mall, with direct access to the mall from the hotel. I checked in at 01.00 and and a staff member walked with us to the mall to get a late night bite, in one of the eateries that opens all night. all told it was a very good week-end.

Very happy with the turn around
Huge improvements in housekeeping since my last stay a few months ago. The room was clean and well-maintained. The drains worked and water was not backing up in the sink like last time. And there wasn't grime or dust covering the surfaces. I was pleasantly surprised. Also very happy to see that they made the egg station a vegetarian station so that it is more accessible for people with specific dietary requirements when it comes to handling of meat products. Overall, it was a stay that was really enjoyable, relaxing, and comfortable.
