The hotel is quite grand looking from the outside, but the rooms could use some updating. The bathrooms look recently remodeled, but the carpets, furniture and decorations are showing a lot of age. My room had a stale cigarette smell that was probably from the old carpets and furniture. The hotel hallways were heavily scented to mask the old odors. The scents were quite nice, actually, but if you are sensitive to such things, then this place is not for you. The Japanese restaurant inside the hotel was pretty good. Excellent sushi. There is a shopping mall about 10 minutes walk down the street that has a supermarket and lots of dining options from fast food to sit-down. Overall, the hotel was OK. With some updating it could be a great property.
