I’ve had an eye on this hotel for a while. For several years, the outer appearance of the hotel had caught my attention whenever viewing it during a ride on an airport limousine. Considering that the rate of this hotel as a 5 star rated hotel, I was expecting to be impressed that matched the stay I had at the Singapore Ritz-Carlton. Although not as impressive, I was offered an upgrade upon arrival.

Stayed 2 nights in Oct 2019
