I stayed here for a night, primary because my regular hotel was not avaliable.
Check-in : This was slow. Apparently there was a computer glitch, and the reservation systems were taking a longer time to response. Not sure if the pre-allocate rooms, but the girl took about 5 minutes to find me a room which I had a confirmed booking from the hotel's own booking site. There was a bit of a walk from the reception to the hotel lifts. You had to walk and turn off into the shopping area before reaching the hotel lift lobbies. There are different lift lobbies for high floor rooms and low floor rooms.
Shopping : Extremely limited number of shops. Hardly can be called shopping. More like a hotel shopping arcade.
Visit Venetian if you want to shop. Or Wynn, or City of Dreams if designer is what you want.
Gambling : Expensive for the casual player. Most tables are HKD 300 and above Cross the road at the Banyan Tree to the Grand Waldolf to find HKD 100 tables.
Food : The chain boasts of a food paradise. I think that is overated. There are decent food places no doubt, but nothing superior to what the other resorts can offer (eg Venetian next door also has good places to eat, including a Mortons). Other casinos like the Grand Lisboa even have michellin star resturants.
Room : Room was decent, bed comfortable. Refreshments free. Nothing outstanding compared to other hotels.
The Wave pool was closed for maintenence while I was there.
Basically, I felt there wasn't much to do at the hotel. Its main non-gambling entertainment would be the outdoor pools (not usable in winter) and a cinema.
Won't stay there again.
