Hope that an email would be sent prior to our arrival advising the transportation between airport and the hotel. We had a great time in room, but it took a little bit walk to the restaurant nearby. It seems people nearby doesn't quite like Asian as they shouted at us near the entrance of the hotel.

Excellent customer service. They upgraded our room to a junior suite after one night on the ground floor next to a busy road. Everyone was super helpful with restaurant choices each day. We were able to walk to everything. The hotel is directly across the street from a beautiful huge park.

The hotel is located a bit far from the center of the city in front of Hagley Park and there are no supermarkets and convenience stores near the hotel. I would be happy if there was a small store like kiosk in the hotel. I had dinner at the bistro. Service and quality were quite good.
