This place is a disgrace!!! Heed my warning please! Avoid this place but if you do end up here and you're given room 1002 change IMMEDIATELY. There is no reception to check in. Luckily we arrived just before "someone" turned up with all the keys and info for guests at 5pm. Some poor fellow traveller had been waiting from 10am...

The WORST experience I've ever had, my Wife and I stayed here and will be the last time ever. After the 3rd night, we had leak from our bathroom ceiling that came through the light fixtures, it came down so bad it flooded the bedroom and got all of our clothing wet - laundry mind you. We called and it...

I recently stayed here and I was charged twice on my credit card for my stay. Initially the reception said my credit card declined but after I had left the hotel the second duplicate transaction appeared in my account two weeks later. I called and emailed the hotel to get a refund and they have not given my money back...

The staff we did see were cheerful, friendly and helpful. If...

Stayed here two nights. Facilities in the room were at best basic. Signage to entrance terrible. Valet hours unsuitable to our travel. In the lift is a warning notice that due to service repairs the lift can take up to 40 minutes, and it can delay that long. Reception staff were unfriendly, we didn't look for further support based on...

We stayed hear for 3 nights. I was quite nervous about staying hear as there are many bad reviews, but I don't think it's as bad as everyone makes out.

Stayed here for four nights in Jan 2017 as a lower-cost alternative to the overpriced Hilton where our conference was being held. The efficiency room with a large, comfortable bed included a tiny table, adequate kitchen and bathroom with washing machine. Our 39th floor view was magnificent but the single working, slow, small glass-walled elevator was inconvenient; however, we were...

This is the worst place. We had 2 rooms and both had cockroaches and the rooms are filthy and noisy. Don't ruin your trip. The photo you'll see on the internet doesn't represent the units. The rooms are dated, unclean and down right filthy. You couldn't pay me to stay there. We renamed the place the tower of terror.

“Consider the problem of a single elevator access, but the view is better the higher you go.”
  • Lovely view from 39th floor.
  • Surprise view from the glass-walled elevator!
  • Sunset from 39th floor.
  • Sun conveniently set between two buildings.
  • Colors of sunset softly bathe the city.
  • Rainbow view as the elevator descended.
