Staff is exceptional
Friendly, welcoming and helpful, the staff offers great customer service. They will be there to help you with recommendations and directions or arranging airport transportation and other tickets or reservations.
On-site restaurants expensive
Several guests felt that the restaurants that are in-house are expensive and preferred to visit other restaurants in the area as there are plenty of choices around.
Some rooms not yet updated
Some rooms have been recently updated, while others have not. Guests who received a non-updated room complained about the looks as they are not shown on the hotel website. If you make a reservation you might want to request an updated room.
Large hotel can lead to issues
With 1400 rooms this hotel is quite big, and some guests felt that this made their stay more anonymous and that the service suffered at peak times because of high volume. You might have to wait a bit at the front desk due to this if the place is fully booked.
