Hotel Review: Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central

I’ve been to Macao a number of times and other than a stay at Wynn when it was new, The Venetian was where I always stay for the simple reason that they had the biggest rooms which were the best value for money. Last August I decided it was time for a new hotel so I tried Sheraton Macao Hotel which is under the Sands Cotai Central group of hotels and a sister hotel to The Venetian. 

The lobby was very unremarkable since it was undergoing renovation.

This is the registration area and depending on the hour the queues could be very long.

I booked an Executive Suite so the check-in was at Sheraton Club Lounge where I had some snacks while everything was arranged quickly and I was given the room keys even before I finished my coffee.

Our room was in the Sky Tower which was conveniently located next to the food court and shopping mall. It’s a farther walk if you stay in the Earth Tower.

Sheraton Macao Hotel- Executive Suite 

The suite measured 83 sq. m.  or 893 square ft. an has a large bedroom with a king sized Signature Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® bed and a living room with a sofa bed. There was free wifi for this room otherwise you can get free wifi in the lobby.

I loved the huge bathroom with a freestanding tub in the middle of the room and separate toilet and shower stalls.

A nylon pouf and bath salts were provided.

A big cabinet and a vanity makeup table lined one wall of the bathroom.

The sofa bed had a thin, springy mattress but I managed to get two nights of good sleep.

A wide mirrored counter in the living room housed the tea and coffee making facilities as well as the as the mini refrigerator. There was no Nespresso machine in this suite unlike at the Verona Suite in The Venetian

There was a powder room right off the entrance to the suite.

From the room you can see the swimming pool at the 4th floor. There’s an adult only pool on the 8th floor which you can see in the middle of the picture but it wasn’t operational.

The pool area had a kiddie and a long but narrow pool.

From the mall there was a walkway to The Venitian and Four Seasons hotels.

I made a comparison of the two suites.  The price of the two rooms were a few hundred HK$ difference only. Which would you choose if the price were the same? Here’s my review of The Venetian’s Verona Suite.

Our stay at the Executive Suite included an afternoon tea set for two and daily breakfast buffet at the Sheraton Club Lounge. The room was much smaller than the Verona Suite of The Venetian but it was quite comfortable. Overall we enjoyed our stay in the hotel. There was a food court and a lot of restaurants to choose from in the mall connected to the hotel so it was very convenient.

  1. i also stayed at sheraton macao sky tower last march and loved every minute of it… the queue during check in and check out was long but a very courteous hotel personnel handled everything for me so i didnt have to line up at all. the staff was courteous, efficient and prompt. i loved the pool area and the breakfast buffet spread at Feast. I find it more manageable than Venetian which was so big i got lost every time i went there
