I used the kettle, in conjunction with an Aeropress and hand held coffee grinder travel coffee kit. It is always great to enjoy hot fresh joe at a moments notice, without having to hunt down a coffee stand or order from room service.

Most hotels in Macau offer complimentary beverages in their minibars that will be restocked once per day. Guests are free to drink these under stipulation that they leave the cans behind, proving that the drinks were enjoyed in the hotel room... not taken on the go.

Sofitel Ponte 16 stocks their complimentary minibar with two bottles of hotel branded water, a can of Red Bull, Coca-Cola, Tonic Water, Sprite and Coca-Cola Zero.

I walked past the Sofitel Ponte 16 a week ago. The outside of the hotel was absolutely filthy. I know Chuck only posted one picture of the outside so it is hard to compare, but I don't understand how it could start looking so rundown after only a year.

Chuck is right that it has a good location for exploring the peninsula, particularly the parts further away from the Lisboa/Wynn area. You can kind of see it in the picture on the top of page 8, but there is a cool rundown art deco-ish hotel, the Hotel Grande, directly across the street from the Sofitel.
