Weekend At Sheraton

Photos by MJ Klein

Recently, Hui-chen and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary.  We decided to spend it at the newly-built Sheraton hotel in Jubei.

Sheraton Weekend

The room we stayed in was on the 21st floor.  That is the top floor for rooms.  There is a club on the 22nd floor for the exclusive use of guests on the 20th and 21st “club level” floors.  Our room was luxurious and spacious.

Wide-screen HD TV plus a DVD player in the bottom cabinet.

The mini bar and the desk.  I didn’t bring my computer but there is free wifi in each room.

We had fun jumping in this huge bed!

This is the view outside of our window (sorry about the funny color – the glass is tinted).

We decided to eat dinner in the club upstairs (sorry but we didn’t catch the name of the club).  This is the hallway outside of our room.

This is the view east (towards the high-speed rail) from the top floor club.

The club is very nicely appointed.  Plus, the TV is not too loud!

The setup at the Sheraton is interesting, because if you stay on the top 2 floors in the hotel, everything in this club is free.  While they don’t have the wide selection of food like the restaurant does, the top floor club is a nice place to hang out and the food they do serve is quite good.

This is a good example of one of the dishes, braised boneless beef ribs.  It was as good as it looks.

Our last shot is the dessert service.  These were very good!

Overall our experience at the Sheraton Jubei was positive and we really enjoying being there.  They have a promotion going on until May 31st, so you’d better hurry if you want to check it out at reduced prices.  They still have a few wrinkles to iron out (such as the breakfast buffet) but they’ll get there.  After all, they just opened and it’s a huge operation.  I also would like to say that I checked out the construction of our room and everything is top class.  You’ll enjoy your stay too.

    1. hi Craig. the room really was great (wish the photos were, lol). i’m a big fan of the Sheraton now that i’ve been there. the club on the top floor is very cool. i’d take some friends or business associates there for sure! take care.

  4. Congrats to you MJ and Hui-chen on 3 years and many more to come. Good to see you enjoyed in style and I thought the pics were fine. Free beer and cocktails could a littel dangerous with a few of you there on business meetings..

    Do they stock Sangsom? 🙂

  5. Congratulations to you and Hui-Chen on your anniversary. And thanks for the hotel review. It’s nice to mark those milestones in your life.

    1. thank you, Tom. yes, we’re newly married so it’s nice to mark off the milestones with Hui-chen. we’re looking forward to many more. thanks for your kind comments.

    1. thanks Michael. the hotel featured a special rate that was significantly reduced. the room we stayed in was over NT$10,000 per night normally. we paid a lot less than that and got to stay on the top floor. thanks and take care!

  6. How nice hotel ! I stayed at Lai Lai Sheraton when visited to Taiwan.
    It was long time ago, so, I can not remember well….
    By the way, Congraturations for your wedding aniversary !

    1. thank you so much, Emi. we’re glad you visited our blog and we invite you to comment any time you like! i hope your visit to Taiwan was enjoyable! take care!

  7. Congrats on the 3 years. Great looking hotel room. Where in Taiwan is Jubei???

    I like the pic of the hallway outside of your room… the carpet looks like a time-lapse pic of cars on the highway with lights on 🙂

    The braised boneless beef ribs looks good… but as I watch the Phantom Gourmet (they are doing a show on seafood/clam shacks)… I’m in the mood for fried clams now.

    1. hi Mike. Jubei is just north of Hsinchu. “bei” means “north” and the “chu” in Hsinchu and “ju” in “Juibei” are the same word, meaning “bamboo.” it means that Jubei is north of Hsinchu. btw, we’re going to get some fried clams when we visit New England. take care Mike.

      1. Hmmmm… so now I know how to say “bamboo” in Chinese 🙂 I’ll have to see if I can find where Jubie is on Google Earth.

        Hmmmm… where to go for fried clams in New England. Well… I would have to say that THE place to go… is Rt 133 in Essex where you’ll find Woodmans… where the fried clam was invented. There are 4 or 5 places in like a 1 mile (1.6km) secction of Rt 133 in Essex that are all among the best places to go for fried clams… and other seafood.

        Hopefully there won’t be any “red tide” problems while you’re here so that the local clams can be enjoyed.

        1. Mike, check out the map link on the “Weekend at Sheraton” article. the hotel is in Jubei and i marked the article with the hotel’s location.

          i’m going to take Hui-chen to Kelly’s. that’s as good as any place i can think of! take care.

          1. I found Jhubei City on Google Earth. Found the train station that was there. I copy and pasted the name of the station into Bablefish and told it to translate Chinese to English and it got translated to… “North bamboo train station” 🙂

            Well… Kelly’s is as good as any. They now have places in Saugus, Danvers, Medford, Allston, and I think 1 other place in addtion to Revere. However… with Revere.. you’re right on the beach. Thats where I went Saturday after the Phantom Gourmet’s show on seafood put me into the mood for fried clams (rode my bike there… of course).

          2. Mike, that is it. you found it. btw i did not know that Kelly’s had expanded into so many new locations. they must be doing something right. take care, Mike.
