In short, I couldn't have asked for anything better for my business trip than what Four Points Shenzhen has to offer. It was my first ever trip to China and I was a little worried about making my way to this hotel as I was flying into Hong Kong International Airport and had to make my own way into Shenzhen. Thankfully, it was so easy. At the airport, just head to the bus terminal, buy a ticket (RMB180) and that will take you to the hotel lobby. No worries.
The hotel room is nothing short of what you can expect from an international hotel chain. Food is decent albeit a little overpriced. I like the breakfast - in particular the scrambled egg was yummy. There is also a minimart within hotel grounds so you can easily get a cold Coke and Kit Kat bar without denting your wallet.
What impressed me the most is the service quality of the hotel staff. So as not to over share, I would just say I encountered a small "incident" during my trip, and the service staff really went out of their way to get me out of the fix. And mind you, I managed to get by most communication on English, which is more than I can say for any non-English-speaking countries.
The only slight complaint I had was regarding the morning shuttle provided to ferry the hotel guests to the nearby trade-free zone. On one of the days, there were too many people taking the shuttle and 5 of us were left and asked to take the next shuttle, 30 minutes later. And even taxi was cheap, but they weren't allowed in the trade-free zone, making it a little inconvenient.
The hotel location, unfortunately, is a little out of the way. But as mention, taxis are cheap. So, just make sure you bring a name card from the hotel, then, get the hotel staff to tell the cab driver where you are going, and on the way back, hand the card to the cab driver. And, if you are leaving to go to Hong Kong, there is a shuttle every 30 minutes, throughout the day, to ferry you to the nearby Futian Border, which is a short walk to Hong Kong where you can board the MTR.
Overall, great place to stay for work, probably also decent for pleasure.
