Nice rooms, great restaurants and a mid-size lounge. Busy hotel but service is quite prompt and always professional and courteous. Higher floors provide a great view of the surrounding areas. Room was very comfortable and functional. Best of all, it was very quiet - could not hear anyone walking the hallways. Would definitely return.

Stayed there for one night on Feb/14. The hotel is huge with a lot of restaurant to choose from. The room was well maintained and clean. In my opinion the hotel can be improved in following areas: 1- The towels provided in the room were poor quality (feels like a floor mat than a towel). 2- The breakfast selection was...

Nice hotel with crystal chandeliers and nice marble in the common areas. Lots of great restaurants on the property. Walking distance or short cab ride distance to the major shopping like rugs or souvenirs. Definitely worth staying at, again.
