Hotel is in a convenient spot of town with easy access to shopping and dinning (Luohu area) and a short taxi ride from Shenzhen train station. Location wise it is great.
From the moment of walking in, I can tell this is an older property but the exterior and ground is well maintained so absolutely fine. I was upgraded to a suite as a premier member and this is great too. However, I was told at the front desk that breakfast and lounge access is NOT included which is a bit strange but not a big deal since I would be leaving early in the morning. I did decide later to question the IHG Reward program policy and after 10 minutes, I received a phone call from the Hotel Manager indicating they would honor the premier member privilege. So my advice to fellow travelers who have premier status with IHG hotels is, know your membership benefits and ask for them when not offered.
OK now the facility. My room is located on the 12th floor - while it is called a "suite" with full open space, I can not say it is a premier room. It is spacious by most hotel room standard though, just not the best "suite" I have ever seen compare with other comparable Crowne Plaza properties. The room decor including furniture is quite old-fashioned, a bit too traditional to my taste. Having said, the room is considered pleasant and comfortable.
I knew I wouldn't have the chance to have breakfast in the morning but did decide to check out the Club Lounge. As anticipated, the lounge level is furnished with an old-fashion flair - dark wood tables/chairs and traditional decoration. Layout is cramped and food/drink supplies is also a bit disappointing. Overall not a very relaxing space to hang out so I left after 10 minutes.
To sum up, this is an OK hotel particularly you want stay around the train station area. But I can't say I enjoyed the hotel much as this property is a bit too outdated for me There are many other nicer hotels in Shenzhen in the same price range so I would recommend to check out other options before booking here. But for a quick one or two night stay, this hotel is probably fine.
