The city hotel is quite a nice place, especially for the cost, given its location. They are undergoing a renovation right now, so occasionally we were disturbed by carpet shampooing or elevator repairs, but all in all no big deal.
The rooms have all of the basic things that a traveler needs, a soft bed (by China standards, anyway), a nice LCD TV, and the usual suspects of international news programming.
The included breakfast buffet was very good, a nice selection of western and chinese foods, and an omelet bar.
My only complaint is that it is a few blocks away from the metro station (Shanxi South Rd), but this was only an issue when we got caught out in the rain one afternoon, and my fault for not bringing an umbrella.
In addition the Pinnacle Peak restaurant at the hotel is quite possibly the best hotel hamburger that we have ever had outside of the USA; the decor is such that you would swear they packed up a kitsch western bar and burger joint in Tucson, AZ and shipped it here to live inside of the city hotel.
