This place is trying to be something it is not! Yes, it is fine...a nice hotel, not far from the Galle Face Green (about 200m) and not a bad ambience. However, it is attempting to be like one of the grand 5 star hotels of the world and it just doesn't meet the mark.
What do I mean? You have to dress up to go to dinner, there is a grand open foyer, it towers over the surrounding buildings....but the foyer is not well air conditioned, the entrance is too small and cars pile up, the rooms are nothing special and the executive breakfast (which I snuck into...oops) is no different to the main breakfast- in fact there may even have been fewer options. The room was not well cleaned either (room decorations very dusty for example).
I suggest not bothering with Executive rooms, just ensure you are in the new section and ask for a standard room. Or stay in the Galle Face Hotel- much less salubrious, but for the same price you can get a suite in the old section (Classic wing) which has a little class and history at least.
