Sofitel Ponte 16 : The MacauTripping Review 2016
Inner Harbor And The Superior King
There is no confusion more predictable than the one caused by the chime of an arriving elevator. One "ding" cranes necks and propels humans into scurry. Wha? Where? Which? Heads bobbing and luggage flying in search of the arriving car. Sofitel solves this problem effortlessly - before an elevator arrives, the entire doorway around it lights up then "ding." Great.
In fact, Sofitel's entire elevator game is something else. The interior features a dazzling crystal chandelier hanging overhead. Very cool.
The elevator landing is modern, clean and well designed. Decor is limited to a combination trash can/ashtray/lamp stand near every door. There is no house phone, seating area or other decor.
The corner embedded way finding technique made locating the room very very easy.
Steps away from the elevator lobby, I arrived at my room.
Just like the hallway wayfinding, the room numbers are also embedded into the corner of the room. Let's go in.
