If you just want to lay on the bed all day long that wouldn't be a problem too because the bed are spotless and neat, their air-conditioning feels like new and their cable TV is always on standby. Sleep quality at this hotel was superb I was able to sleep right away. I wasn't able to test their WiFi but the staff said their WiFi signal is stronger on the lobby area, after some people in our group complained about it.
