Fodor's Review

At this hotel within the 1901 Old Station Building, the huge bustling lobby is a reminder of the building's previous incarnation as a railway station. It's a very popular place, so be prepared for lots of tour groups milling around. Unfortunately the rooms don't quite live up to the lobby, but they are perfectly pleasant and have views of the central courtyard and pool area. The hotel itself–owned by Legacy Hotels and Resorts–boasts numerous facilities, including an adjacent cinema, casino, and two restaurants (the Platform, a standard continental-style place, and a Chinese restaurant).
