perfect location, super helpful staff
Breakfast buffet could be improved with more variations. Since the hotel's located in the heart of Chinatown (which often frequented by asian visitors and patrons) perhaps it's a good idea to consider providing some Asian inspired breakfast option too.

Disappointing with this name
I've always feel that Novotel name is ok but was disappointed with my recent stay. My agent booked me in the hotel under the standard room. I extended my stay and booked with agoda the executive room for another 2 nights. The hotel staff refused to get me an upgrade on the room. So I paid for it. But on the day of the extend, they did not clean up my room at all. The wifi was dis-connected as well. Had to call up Housekeeping when I come back late after sight seeing. Hotel did not give me any good explanation at all. Did not even addressed my unhappiness.

Great location
Room was clean and everything worked. Weather was really aweful with heavy rain and gale force winds. Staff were friendly. Had a room with a balcony and only complaint would be the sliding glass door was very hard to open and close.

Comfortable Stay
Very convenient location with large room! Overall was a good stay, only issue is the second last day the room cleaning was not what it should be. Bathroom appeared to be a rush, towels left on the floor from the morning where still there. It was like they started and then quit half way.
