Verified Reviews of Hotel Shangri La

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Room heater didn’t work for two days."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I love the location and the set up. Had a very nice room. Only issue is I couldn't sleep the first two nights and had to get housekeeping to bring two blankets. The maintenance crew came up twice to fix the problem and it didn't work. Don't use room 604. I should have asked them to reduce my bill but didn't due to my schedule and the need to catch a train.

"Outstanding"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
First off, I don't typically write review comments, but I feel compelled to share. Staff. Incredibly polite, fun and helpful. Room was clean, had a great view and had great style and decor. But what capped it off for me was a late night room service order, fast and the food was absolutely outstanding. Not at all what I was expecting. If you have to be away from home, this is a cool place to be.
