This is my first stay at the Tapestry brand by Hilton. At first glance from outside, it reminds me of an Aloft hotel; modern, sharp, concrete, with plenty of colour inside and a ‘branded perfume’ smell.
Check-in is interesting, as the front desk person explains how to use the app I am asked to download in order to utilise many of the services and facilities offered. For example breakfast can be pre-ordered only via the app at the adjoining Starbucks (there is no dedicated on site restaurant).
My booked standard room using 29K Hhonors points is upgraded to a King Times Suite – about 60 Square metres and architecturally interesting – wooden and concrete with huge windows, 2 TVs, automated blinds, seperate living space, and work area.
Due to Covid there are no evening canapés or cocktails but beer and mixed nuts are served for Diamond members in a room only accessible by room card.
I use the gym in the evening and the next morning. It has pretty good standard equipment which is fine for an overnight stay.
Complimentary Diamond breakfast is pre-ordered via the app – it is overpriced starbucks, all pre-made, and not particularly good.
I had booked another night this week but have decided to cancel and stay at Hilton Banciao instead (see earlier review).
