We stayed six nights in a Tower Room (#2722) at the Sheraton Royal Orchid using my Starwood points. The room was basic with two double beds. Average bathroom with plenty of counter space. They provided robes, slippers, hairdryer, upgraded bathroom amenities, a safe, complimentary bottled water, and cable TV (not much in English, however). The view from the 27th floor was great, especially the morning after it rained.
Along with our Tower Room we had access to the lounge on the 26th floor, free laundry service (six pieces each daily), and a huge buffet breakfast that included American, Thai, and Japanese food.  I especially liked the fresh orange juice that tasted like tangerine. Laundry service was essential in this steamy climate. We left our laundry in bags in the morning and found it returned in a satin basket each afternoon. The hotel is connected to the River City Shopping Mall.

Each evening a woman played music in the hotel lobby.
