What is the difference ?”

Compared to for instance Cinnamon Grand: Mainly the staff available for serving the guests. And the location connecting with the One shopping center. Other facilities are similar. Try to get a corner room these are more attractive with a better view and feel lighter and spacier.

Could not fault it”

We stayed at the new Shangri La for 2 nights and could not fault the service. The place is a top class hotel and definitely lives up to its name. Service we received was outstanding, especially on NYE when we needed to get to Negombo after our ride cancelled. The assitant concierge went out of his way to try all options which resulted in us getting to our party on time :) The pool area is great and the staff will go out of their way for you. Buffet breakfast was out of this world and Prabath was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definately be visiting other Shangri La hotels in future after this great experience.

The gave us a room type that was not what we booked on Agoda. They they tried to convince us the the lower grade room was better than the one booked. I asked if I was going to get a refund and they said no. After showing my booking the manager agreed to move us to the right room. Not what I have experienced with Shangri La before. Other than the check-in issue the hotel was fine.

Excellent hotel”

My stay was perfect except for a couple of issues. On my 1st day at the hotel, I went out of the room around noon. I asked the staff to clean up the room but when I came back after 3 hours I found that it was still not cleaned. My 2nd issue was that I contacted the Guest Services on the night before my check out date and requested for an Airport Transfer. I was then asked by the person who answered to confirm the exact time I wanted the transfer, I requested for 5pm but he insisted that due to heavy traffic I should leave a bit earlier. I told him that I am thinking about it and will call back. I called back after about 5 minutes and asked him that I wanted the transfer to be set at 4:30pm to which I was confirmed that the transfer will be arranged. When I came to make the payment during checkout, I found out that there was no transfer inputted in the system. Fortunately, the girl I met during checkout arranged a taxi for me and I was able to leave on time.
