Parkroyal on Pickering: The Room

Our welcome drink was a tangy, zesty lime and lemon drink (bottom). 
In our rooms, we found a line of gourmet chocolates sitting on a black tile. The welcome note attached was addressed to someone else but we ate it all anyway :P

The double bedded room (I'm thinking it's a deluxe) has a huge picture window that overlooks the Great Eastern building. There are day blinds and night blinds controlled by switches (a common feature in most modern hotels, like Oasia and Quincy). 

If I sound like a tourist, it's probably because I am. HEHE

Deliciously comfy beds and pillows as soft as dreams.

Have a peep in the cupboard and be pleasantly surprised by their safe, which is lighted from within and comes with a power source (so you can charge your laptop while it's in the safe!). Again, something new in most up and coming hotels. Love it! We kept two laptops securely here, but we're sure it can also fit three more iPads. 

The toilet is open concept, until you pull back the two sliding doors that closes it off from the room. 
Toiletries are from St. Gregory's, very naise. 
Glass weighing scale.
Toilet with no bidet.
Closed-off shower area.
Body towel, hair towel, face towel and hand towel. 

Coffee and tea making facilities. 
Coffee jug is plunger styled. 
Tea is from some French brand. 
A very sleek glass-fronted mini fridge full of mini-sized liquor and candy bars. (Remove anything for more than 8 seconds and it's charged to your bill)

Next post: the hotel's dining area.
