This is i think my third review of this hotel. The rooms are very comfortable especially the executive rooms where you can also use the executive club lounge on the 19th floor. Happy hour is from around 5 to 8pm with free drinks and nibbles in the lounge.
There is a huge choice of pillows and if you book a club or executive room you get your own Butler which is rather nice and old fashioned. What's wrong with old fashioned it's great and one reason I stay at this Hotel.
Very conveniently situated in the city close to most things. The staff are very friendly and helpful even though I have noticed there are fewer English speaking than in the past, sometimes it is difficult to get them to understand what you want. Some of the staff in the downstairs bar are grumpy and I really think the hotel should address this as they are the front line staff many people will judge the hotel by. Be aware of course like most Hotels in China 95% of the guests are now Chinese not Western so the hotel will cater for Chinese guests perhaps more than Western.
All in all after staying here for over 10 years now quite a number of times I would recommend this hotel for value and comfort. The food particularly breakfast is very nice and of course there are many restaurants near by. If you have any problems ask for Mr. Andrew Herdman who is the Guest Manager and is English so it is easy to talk to someone if you have a complaint or want some local knowledge.
