6/10 Good

Nice hotel, shame about the aircon
Hotel looks great and the rooms are comfortable as well as spacious. Sadly the aircon broke in the middle of the night sending the temperature up beyond tolerable so we had to change rooms at 2am. There was no one on reception when we complained for 20 minutes so the stay was very much marred by this. Otherwise the hotel would have been great.

10/10 Exceptional

I'm a frequent traveler and I have to say this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in around the world. The experience is carefully curated from the moment you arrive at the front desk. All of the staff is superb and highlight several points of service. The property is beautiful and well suited for a getaway. You'll actually find it difficult to leave because it is do comfortable and the food is excellent. I cannot wait to return in the future.

The hotel ambiance, cleanliness, and style was great. Looked really cool! Location could have been better but it was a good 10 minute walk to local transit.
