The Good: nice facilities (mostly), well appointed rooms, beautiful location, warm service (again, not always), good spa (Anna is the best massage therapist I've had in China).
The Bad: slightly overpriced food, of so-so quality; staff at the breakfast lounge too busy to be friendly; very off-putting decor at the pan-Asian restaurant; outrageous prices at the spa (about 3 to 5 times the price of the top spas in Shanghai).
The Ugly: my room, a reward for years staying at Starwood hotels, had the windows blocked by the sight of a zinc roof; the pillows were too hard to sleep on; there was no hot water in the bathtub; my room remained untouched four hours after I had asked it to be cleaned.
My Take: unless you're a Chinese middle-class family with small children, better try your luck elsewhere.
