After our cruise from Southampton we spent 4 nights at this amazing hotel.
We were early for the check-in but the reception found us a room on the 48th floor which was fantastic. It was imaculate and the porter was so cheerful and showed us where everthing was. The view was terrific which made us take too many photos.
The Rise restaurant was really good though a little expensive - the inclusive buffet breakfasts had everything one could wish for.
The rooftop pool area was exceptional with tight security, pleasant staff always smilling and polite. One could not help but relax in this area.
We went to the theatre to see 'Wicked' which was very good.
Before we booked I read some of the reviews which seemed to give the impression that the hotel was overrated with problems with reception and service. We decided to give it a try because we thought that most of the adverse comments may have been due to teethng problems with the new development and the fact that the 'Trip' does attract the hypercritical/moaners in our society. We took the gamble and it certainly paid off and can safely say it is one of the best hotels we have stayed in (we have stayed at the Oriental and Marina Mandarin which we consider excellent hotel and this one is also excellentMore
