What a hotel. This was class from the moment we walked through the lobby. Team in the hotel are amazing, then we opened our door. Blinds opened, views of west/north of the city. Spacious room, huge dining table, bathroom and separate toilet. Excellent gym facilities, amazing spa, steam room and sauna in the change rooms male/female. The photos of the pool were amazing but the pool could have been a little wider like the crown towers just felt everyone was hovering over each other. Minimal detail. We didn’t use the meal facilities or bar but the views from the 80th floor reception were second to none. Overall I would happily come back to this hotel anytime.

Spent the night of our wedding here and we definitely should have booked a longer stay. The customer service both over the phone and in-person was 5 stars. Very accommodating, helpful and they even provided recommendations. It was a very late check in but even the staff at that time were amazing. The room and facilities are just wow, immaculate, great views, delicious restaurant food. Cannot wait to come back again soon. Thanks team🙏🏼
