Spent a couple of days at the Ritz Carlton in Shenzhen in December 2013. So far the best hotel experienced in Shenzhen in this price category.
+ the pluses:
> decent room size with decent-size flat screen, nespresso coffee machine etc.
> bathroom with free-standing tub and separate shower cubicle, quality bathing amenities
> comfy linen bed and decent size pillows
> club lounge offers the whole day food and drinks, incl. afternoon tea specials, lunch, dinner etc.
> attentive English-speaking staff which is not yet common for all 5 star hotels in China, from check-in, concierge, club lounge staff to staff in the breakfast restaurant; some nice little touches and surprises for pull-down
> built in adapters for pc in the working desk
> free and working wireless Internet in the room and public areas
> fast elevators
- the minuses:
> room showed some wear and tear here and there; nothing of major concern though
> had to ask for more careful room cleaning which was promptly done from then on
> breakfast does have variety incl. chef-made eggs, noodles, fried rice, soups, cereals, pastries etc. and is good but for whatever reason its missing a delight element; warm dishes are Asian style only
other things to know:
> primarily frequented by Chinese business people who can afford this premise
> walking distance to some shopping malls and exhibition halls, reasonably close to all downtown areas with taxi
Giving it a 5 rating overall because of the staff being attentive and helping one to enjoy the stay.
