The most basic of these rooms is the Deluxe King room, which comes in at just under 380 square foot and is fitted with a number of essentials. If you want to push the boat out then you might want to opt for the Diplomatic King room, which is nearly twice the size and is one of biggest rooms you will find in the city.

The hotel can even arrange for there to be one extra double bed placed in this room, which makes it ideal for small groups or families.
All rooms have private bathrooms, which come equipped with a bidet, shower and a bath, whilst guests can also make use of a hairdryer, slippers and bathrobe. There is also an alarm clock in the rooms, as well as a flat-screen television that has cable channels and pay-per-view channels, a telephone, a minibar, tea and coffee making facilities, a safety deposit box and much more. All rooms are soundproofed and air-conditioned, and smoking is not allowed in any of them. There are also facilities for disabled guests, so if you want to take advantage of any of these then be sure to mention your requirements when you book, giving the hotel plenty of time to make the required arrangements.
Breakfast is served at the Sheraton Hotel Taipei every morning in the Kitchen 12 onsite restaurant, which cooks a range of International foods and lays on a bountiful buffet breakfast. If this is not to taste and if you want something with more of a local flavor, then you can enjoy Thai food and fine Chinese food at the Sukhothai Restaurant. There are also shops onsite, which are stocked with a number of snacks, drinks and mementoes, ideal to use as keepsakes or as gifts.
If you’re looking to keep busy, there is a golf course within 3 kilometers of the hotel. You can get information on this course at the front desk, so if you want to book yourself into a full 18 holes, or if you’re looking for something briefer, just ask at the 24-hour front desk.

Best Deals on the Sheraton Hotel Taipei
There are close to 700 rooms at the Sheraton Hotel Taipei, and filling so many rooms is no easy task, even for such a highly rated hotel. Hotels lose money if they have empty rooms and more often than not they’ll do what it takes to fill these rooms. If you don’t mind which type of room you stay in and don’t mind which dates you stay, you can get a great deal just by keeping a close eye on sites like Hotels Combined and leaving your trip very late. This might not be doable if you live far away and have long distance flights to arrange, especially as the money you save on a hotel room will go to paying extra for a late flight, but it’s a great opportunity for travelers that live in Taiwan or in one of the nearby countries.
