I restrict my comments to the hotel and not Wuhan itself which although interesting I would not recommend as a place to visit.
I stayed for 7 nights in this hotel. I had a nice room on the 5th floor facing the lake. It was by Western prices a good deal, I paid 400 RMB per night. The room was spacious, with desk, tea making facilities, plenty of drawer and wardrobe space. The bathroom was clean and everything there worked. There was a turn down service and everything was kept well serviced e.g. supplies of free bottled water. Also the WiFi worked almost all the time although with variable speed and having to switch networks.
I found the restaurant less good. I was enthusiastic about Chinese style meals for lunch and dinner (provided by my hosts at CCNU) but preferred a Western-style breakfast. The options were pretty limited there. Also the tables were not really cleaned up properly between diners. There did not seem to be a bar to sit in the evening, although I was too tired anyway.
The style and ambience are quite glittery, not very understated (like say the Optic Valley Kingdom Plaza down the road which is much more expensive though). The location didn't seem that good but it is not clear where one should go out to anyhow. Finally there were a few oddities like the fact that people were smoking in their rooms and leaving the door to the corridor open.
Staff on reception spoke good English and the process went smoothly.
I would stay here again though. I give it more 3.5 stars than 4 but 3 seemed harsh because it is better than average in several categories.
