It is funny for me to review hotels in Suzhou since I grew up in Suzhou and rarely stayed in hotels in Suzhou. But for my wedding night, I decided my wife and I would stay here, and we made the right decision! As a person who has travelled to many countries and is also super familiar with Suzhou, I would say this is the best hotel you can find in the old city of Suzhou. This is the only hotel that I can find in the old city that provides international quality - Suzhou's other good hotels are all in Industrial Park or the New District, which is quite far from the old city. Located in an old Suzhou garden, it provides you with the very authenticate Suzhou cultural experience. The rooms are overall of decent quality and the business suites are particularly spacious, well decorated and maintained. If I were to stay there again, I would definitely choose business suites over regular rooms as they are so much better despite slightly more expensive. The location is great for tourists, as it is within walking distance to the Garden of Humble Administrators, Pingjiang Road, Guanqian Road, and many other famous Suzhou gardens and attractions. One downside of this hotel is that there is no subway near it and it sometimes can be hard to get a taxi. You should always call a taxi beforehand. But as a proud Suzhouer, I would recommend this place to any travelers from outside Suzhou who expect to experience the real Suzhou culture.
