Crown Macau : The MacauTripping Review 2008
The Crown of Macau (Part 3) : Photo and Video Review of the Suites at Crown Macau
Aside from the complimentary basket of fruit that arrived shortly after I, the living area features plush L-shape couch facing both the flat-panel TV, peninsula view, in cable-length proximity to the electronics control panel (the flap behind the laptop). Lots of people like to surf the internet while watching TV (my wife) or would rather send emails while reclined on the couch... having the cable jacks close to the couch is excellent. Unfortunately, there are no master lighting control panels near the couch or bed - my largest complaint about Crown Macau's rooms. When the time comes to hit the sack, you've got to hunt all over the place to locate all of the switches for 30 lighting options.
One of the most striking features of the desk is its shape. It's sloping angle provides ample elbow room at the sitting end, while disappearing itself at the end. The teeny weeny end is still large enough for a pile of cellular phones, cocktail glasses or a hand bag while hiding itself from dented hips and stubbed toes. On the desk is a Cisco IP phone, halogen desk lamp, ashtray, tissue box, hotel services menu, notepad and a vase stocked with fresh, real, flowers. As previously mentioned, the cut out flap in the wall behind the phone contains an astounding array of plugs and inputs. So where's the fax machine? It's located at the end of the Cisco phone line as part of the six star service. Fax machines/printers in hotel rooms are possibly the most unsightly, useless addition ever (particularly if you use Windows and don't have the 'drivers' required.) Welcome to the 21st century - people don't use fax machines anymore.
