Taichung's newest five-star hotel is also one of its most visible, located in one of the two brightly-lit skyscrapers constructed by parent company Pou Chen Group just west of the Route 1 freeway. Windsor Hotel's 149 spacious rooms and suites are primarily targeted at business travelers so room amenities are exceptional, including a three-in-one fax/copy/scan business machine, notebook computer (suites only), LCD TVs in room and bathroom, wireless Internet access and other nice touches. Prices start at NT$8,800 for a Superior Room, although there is a 50-percent net discount on all rooms and suites until May 31, 2006. The Windsor also features four top-flight restaurants, starting with Taiwan's first branch of world-renowned Ah-Yat Abalone Restaurant (offering Mother's Day specials this month), opened by Hong Kong Master Chef Yeung Koon Yat. Restaurant Suntory focuses on fresh, light, healthy Japanese Kaiseki cuisine, while the Galliano Italian Restaurant offers indoor/outdoor seating with great views on the eighth floor, where the Chateau Wine Cellar and Cigar House also is. Guests get a free breakfast at B1-level Windsor Cafe, serving Western-style buffet meals. Finally, there's the first-floor Rose Corner bakery cafe with more indoor/outdoor seating. Guests and members get access to the seventh/eighth floor Alfa Fitness Club (discounted memberships now available), which includes a heated indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room, hot tub, and garden patio area. Of course, Windsor also has a fully-equipped Business Center, a lecture hall seating up to 300, and multi-purpose function rooms for banquets, conferences and other events.
