My second time .. This hotel needs a lot of improvement from service to the property Hostile feeling when staff make you feel unwelcome.. chef/waiters don’t know their own menu 🙇‍♀️ I stayed in Marriot hotel and this has no Marriot standards neither 3/4/5 star standards It’s in great location in Westland though Solomon is always best host (he’s gem ) The rest need work and upgrade
