I live in China, so my threshold for 5-star may be coming down a smidge. The staff was nice, the room was good (we were upgraded to a suite), but there were a few issues.
The bad: Sewer smell in bathroom (typical of Chinese construction), no place to plug in coffee pot. Fridge not very chilly, clear bathroom door.
The good: located near river, central to the city sights, and easy walk to subway station. Breakfast buffet in main hall was about what I expected. (Some of the food is left out a bit too long and some unlabeled). I felt generally comfortable and taxis were easy to come by.
Beds were firm by US standards, but not Chinese firm - still comfortable.
