Stayed here for a week. My first impressions were its size (very large), the number of guests (small) and its breakfast buffet (large, mostly local foods and pretty good on the whole). I was told they did not have non-smoking rooms available, and perhaps none at all. The bathrooms were large, the bed was reasonably comfortable. TV had a few English news stations, and channel 4 and 12 I think had English or subtitles. The front desk staff usually had at least one person who spoke enough English. Had lunch in the Chinese restaurant one day, and was pretty good. Downsides were the smokey smell, they are working on the "spa" portion of the building (so some construction noise early some mornings), could be difficult for people from outside to contact me on my room phone ("It was impossible to call you"), the small exercise room was unheated (and 40-50 degrees in the morning) and at least once it was locked and I could not get in. For that, there is a little white button you press on top of the service desk to get their attention, if there is someone around. They also charge by the hour. Also, you have to check if the machine is plugged in, and turn on using a switch facing the wall (not on the face of the control panel, but behind it). The hotel was packed one day for a birthday party, they turned on the front fountain, had lots of staff around, and they place seemed to wake up, then go to sleep again after. Went walking around the neighborhood a few times. There is an interesting stairway towards the mountain, and the "pedestrian street" nearby is good for people watching, not for shopping so much. After this I stayed in the Xi'an Sheraton North and the Hyatt on the Bund and both were great, and in comparison this hotel was not the best experience, but probably on the high end of what's available for the price in Beibei, which of course is pretty far from downtown Chongqing.
