The Pullman was in a good location and had a nice swimming pool and warm tubs. It would have been nice if the warm tubs were hot tubs, but they did not heat up enough.

The foyer was elegant and beautiful. No valet personnel to take our car, no bellman for luggage. Didn't know that it was $22 per day to park the car. The young man who checked us in was very nice but couldn't tell us about the restaurant on property or where to go for dinner. The internet was down the entire time. Furniture in the room was pretty but damaged by humidity and time. Not as nice as we had expected.

Great Hotel - Highly Recommend

Pros: Overall cleanliness was refreshing to come back to after a long day outside. The location was amazing.
Cons: Free WiFi is only available in the lobby. You can pay to have WiFi in your room (which I did as I had to work)
Location: Location was superb - Less than a 10 minute walk to the Esplanade &t 5 minutes to the Marina. I got most of my shopping done at the Night Markets!
I was instantly impressed just walking into the lobby!! My room and bathroom were equally spacious - the pillows and the bed were so comfortable. Very clean. My room had a view of the harbor - it was nice to eat breakfast out on the patio - what a view (I was on the 15th floor). I never made it to the pool but it looked great and I'm sorry I never got to enjoy it. Location was also great - it's at the end of the main road, a 5 minute walk from the Esplanade.I was traveling alone and felt very safe the entire time. I'm very happy that I picked this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic Hotel close to everything

Pros: Extremely clean with an expansive and comfortable lobby area. While not inexpensive the price was extremely reasonable for the level of accomodation .
Location: It is located by the harbour, restaurants and shops such as Louis Vuitton just across the road.
We spent three days at this hotel before heading out to the Reef. It is extremely clean and recently refurbished. Our room was large and clean with floor to ceiling windows facing out to a private balcony overlooking the street. The pool facilities are superb and are open from 06.00 to 21.00 daily. Although I didn't have the opportunity to eat dinner in their restaurant I did enjoy their daily breakfast buffet which had a wide selection of hot and cold food as well as fresh fruit and juices. Their staff was very friendly and courteous and extremely helpful.

I Would Stay There Again

A very nice hotel with extremely helpful staff. Although my room wasn't ready because I arrived at 0800 in the morning, they accomodated me with access to the fitness center and pool. Within the hour, they had my room ready. The views were great from the room. The downside that it faced the Casino hotel and those guests were a little loud and could be heard. I also think the connecting door between rooms were a little flimsy as I could hear the other guests, but they were also arguing. The bathroom and the room were spacious, the balcony was large. It was also close to restaurants, the esplanade, and the marina, and other activities. I would definitely stay there again without giving it a second thought.
