This is one of the best Crown Plaza I have stayed in - definitely a 5 star standard. I stayed here Sept. 28, 29 to rest up after a trip to the Himalaya before meeting up with family at my home village about 2 hours from Xiamen. The hotel is close to the airport - $21 rmb via taxi. Supposedly the hotel has a airport hotel shuttle but it did not show up at all. I guess you have to book it ahead of time or it doesn't go out. But that was okay - taxi was just as convenient. I had a massage and facial at the spa on premise. It is call Touch Spa - opens 7 days a week from 10am to 2 pm. Wonderful spa facility comparable to any of the high end spas around the world. Quiet and clean and very zen. Beautiful decorated. Price is international prices though - $100 a hour, but you pay for what you get. The 2 exercise rooms are a good size with modern and clean equipment overlooking a courtyard. There is a good size outdoor pool on the roof and a deck. The hotel is attached to a shopping center with all the brand names from around the world - eg Ralph Lauren, Hagen Dazs etc. In the lobby, there is a Star Bucks right on sight. Xiamen has come a long way since the last time I was here and this hotel is wonderful to stay in. English is spoken here by the staff, but not very well so be patient and speak slow.
