The hotel staff are very attentive and have good English skills. There is a small gift shop which seems to be unusual at high-end hotels in China (at least in my limited experience). This is a Shangri-La property.
My room was comfortable and was an interesting shape--curved somewhat. I never heard other guests during my stay. Wired but not wireless internet available in the room.
The restaurants have great food but are very expensive (including the buffet). The breakfast buffet was included in my room rate (but I didn't realize that until I checked out) and was wonderful.
The workout facilities are very nice and include an indoor pool. The pool room is not heated very much (my arm was notably cold every time I took a stroke--I even switched to breast stroke so more of my body was underwater) and swim caps are required (available there if you don't have one).
The spa is what one would expect at a 5-star hotel. They were able to accommodate my colleague and I on about an hour's notice. They are open very late which was nice for an after-dinner massage on our arrival day.
