The location is mainly full of salarymen going to work. As a tourist I would avoid it, though the hotel was fine - not the biggest though, it started on floor 26 and ended at floor 32.
Pros: The room
Cons: The staff were not as courteous as those at the hilton. I suspect it was because this is a mostly business hotel and I was in shorts and tshirt. Still that says a lot, I also stayed at the park Hyatt and the staff did not seem to differentiate.
