My friends and I took a trip to Benxi to experience the famous Water Caves. We stayed at this hotel because it was the biggest and the only "international" hotel we could locate after driving around the city. This hotel is nice, definitely a four-star in aesthetics. The biggest issue was that the hotel does not offer any non-smoking accommodations.We are not smokers and the room we were in was filled with a heavy tobacco smell. The bedding and pillows were even embedded with this smell and made for a awful night's sleep. One other caveat is that there was only one television channel which offered some English broadcasting.
