I stayed in the Deluxe Room. After checking in, the staff guided me to the elevator closest to my room and explained how to use the key. You touch the key to the pad before pressing your floor in the elevator. Also, rather than the usual hotel key cards, you just push the button on the key to unlock your room door.

Doesn't it look relaxing just from the pictures? Just like the description promised, it really does feel like a residential room that's more like a home than a hotel room.

The room was really big and comfortable, so I didn't even mind finishing up some work I had to do in the room. I think it would be a lot of fun to stay here with friends as the layout is really nice and it feels like you've gone somewhere special.

The bed was so comfortable, I slept like a baby. The next morning, I felt like a character in a TV show as I opened the curtains and admired the view while getting ready for work.

The bathroom is right next to the sink. I was surprised at first because when I walked by, the toilet seat automatically opened. So high-tech!

There are a wide range of facilities at the hotel. There are cafes and restaurants inside the hotel as well as a fitness center, spa, swimming pool, game room, karaoke room, and screen golf. Unfortunately, I couldn't use the pool because it wasn't operating when I visited.
