Amazing Hotel Supurb Service
Lovely accommodations and amenities. Comfy Bed, plush Bath Towels to Lalique Toiletries all added to a great stay. Great Location. Close to Restaurants including delicious food court options next door in the lower level of neighboring building before Casino (The Star). Lovely outside pool deck

Not worth the extra $$.....rooms fall short
Rooms on 7th floor can hear nightclub best until 3am in Morning on thurs, Friday, sat and sun nights ,..:. So annoying, and staff not helpful on this. Awkward lighting in rooms, bed comfort not as good as Astral so wouldn't recommend spending the extra to stay at Darling. Room service a little ordinary and inconsistent and had to be remade.
