Sands Macao Deluxe Suite - The MacauTripping Review 2016
A Bed In A Box of Baccarat
The living room featured the ever popular L-shaped douch, some tables, artwork, a sitting area by the window and an entertainment center that matches the one in the bedroom.
The coffee table is basic but features a gigantic version of the ashtray in the bedroom, replete with a card admonishing the guest that this is a NO SMOKING ROOM. Since this is a non-smoking room and this ashtray will never be used again, I made the executive decision to take this fine piece of hotel crockery home with me. It's sitting on my desk right next to me as I type this.
Perhaps the biggest point to take away from the above photo is the condition of the couch. The sofa cushions are rumpled, stained and in dire need of being pointed. Over time, the series of butts hitting the sofa rotate the cushion cover over the top of the cushion until the seams are completely out of whack with the cushions shape. Ideally housekeeping should see this and repoint the covers. Not here.
Jammed in the corner is an end table containing a phone, note pad, and casino gaming magazines including Macau's version of the "When the Fun Stops" pamphlet entitled "Game Responsibly".
The living room entertainment center, with electric kettle and top secret trash can.
A basic seating area is located in front of the window. I used this table as center of my activities in this room - eating room service, making coffee, writing postcards, culling ten days of extraneous hotel acquisitions that had made their way into my already overweight suit case.
A panoramic view of the ferry terminal, Fisherman's Wharf, future HK Macau Zhuhai landing, Friendship Bridge, the fugly Harborview Hotel and the South China Sea from right behind the big red S of the Sands Macao sign. Lovely view, even on a grim stormy day.
