I stayed twice at this Holiday Inn as part of a tour package. It has one of the best breakfasts I have eaten in a hotel. There is a complete American/European selection and an excellent Chinese selection of food. Food is fresh, tasty and plentiful. You can pretty much skip lunch.
The rooms were large American sized rooms and nicely decorated. Service was very good. They provided good advice on where to eat. When I had a problem with my room lock, they were at my door in minutes to help. The hotel has a Bank money change machine that offers rates that are way better than the Airports which charge large service charges and not so great rates.
The only downside was that the hotel did not seem close to any major tourist sites. There is a nice park, Daguanyuan park that is around 15 minutes walk. Admissions is 40 yuan, I felt it was worth it for its beauty and history. Check it out if you have a couple of hours to spare.
I am strict believer in price performance. I checked the rates for the hotel on the Internet and saw prices in the $80 to low $100 a night for low season. For this kind of money, this hotel is an excellent value.More
