Overall an outstanding hotel, just a couple minor nitpicks. The service at this hotel is outstanding, the rooms are comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean and most everything about the hotel is top notch.
I did find the fitness center cardio equipment while functional, was not as updated as one might expect at a hotel of this caliber. Nothing wrong with it, just not as new as I found at other top hotels. The carpets in my room could have used a refresh. Again, nothing horrible and the room was spotless, just some wear.
The staff was very helpful arranging tours and as I had just 1 day for sightseeing since this was a business trip, it was nice to be able to maximize it. Grey Line tours has a presence right in the hotel making the whole process simple.
The hotel connects to a shopping mall that winds and interconnects through several different complexes making it a bit of a maze. Lots of high end shops, some restaurants, and a nice high end Supermarket Ole - so if you want to pick up some food for snacks, make a meal, etc. this place is great. Little difficult to find as it is a level below what seems to be the lowest level of the mall. But it is there with a great selection of high quality food.
I would stay at China World again without hesitation and highly recommend it.
