“Good Hotel”
Reviewed 22 June 2009

I have stayed in both towers . My last business trip I stayed in the new tower and was up graded to a most beautiful suite. The Club lounge at the Shangri -LA Qingdao is one of the best you will find in any hotel anywhere. The staff are most helpful. The swimming pool is not the most luxurious however if you want to do laps its adequate. The spa was not set up however we did have spa services in our room. They try to get you to add services once in your room and I did complain that it was unprofessional.
The food is good and the room service is great.
Enjoy!

I was at Shangrila for a business trip and enjoyed the club floor. They served champagne the whole day and great tapas in the evening. It is nice to sit at the top floor with a view of the ocean at the end of the day. Service was great too.

The rooms are extremely comfy with Loccitane amenities which I love. Everyday, housekeeping will hand write a little note which is a very thoughtful gesture. The gym is fantastic too with new equipment and not too busy. There is also a good lap pool.

I visited Shangri-La in Mar 2009 on a business trip with my colleagues. There is a beautiful garden with water fountain at the entrance. The lobby is very large and elegant. After you enter the lobby and go to your left there is a huge chandelier which is one of its kind. The restaurant is very good. Rooms are well maintained. In all, the hotel is very good.

For business trips I am staying at the Shangri La several times during the last years. It has always been a pleasureable experience. The Shangri La rooms in the old building are dark but still well maintained and comfortable. Compared to the prices in the new Valley Wing they offer good value for money. The service is immaculate and staff very friendly. My personal favourite is the gym and femal Spa area, that is usually never crowded and is the perfect place to relax from a day at work. The Q-Bar is the same great place - though less crowded the last months. Breakfast buffet is great, actually too much choice for my taste, I do not need the Kimchi near me in the mornings.

This was my first stay at the Shangri-La Qingdao. I love Shangri-La hotels as they combine Asian elegance with modern luxury for the harried business-- or the resort traveler.
I had to fly in for a business meeting and landed mid day. Thankfully, my regional sales manager had booked me at the new Valley Wing, which is equivalent to the Horizon Club level in other Shangri-La hotels. they efficiently checked me in, got me tea and cold water, and booked me a car. The club levels are typically staffed with pretty young women, who speak good english, and understand traveler's needs and are very service oriented. This is quite different than many lower end hotels in China.
Some Tips:
1) Stay in the Valley Wing. It's brand new. A little more expensive but the whole wing is up-scale and service oriented.
2) There is food included in the morning - for fast get-away breakfast, as well as happy hour in the evening from 5-7 with appetizers and wine/alcohol included. You can actually just eat that for dinner.
3) If you get back late (say 10pm), and have made friends with the ladies running the lounge previously and are sweet to them, they will stealthily pour you wine and chat with you, even though the "happy hour" is over.
4) Ask for many bottles of water when you arrive so you don't have to worry about it later, like when you get back to your room in the middle of the night

Excellent hotel. Here comes my short review:

Pro's:
- Hard to beat service from entire staff. Excellent training provided
- Excellent breakfast (choose from Chinese, Western, Korean or Japanese)
- Nice rooms
- Short walk to the beach

Con's:
- None really. Except if you don't like to be pampered. Language skills from staff could be improved a little.

I would stay there anytime again. Strong recommendation!!!
