We booked into Hilton Baiyun for our Canton Fair Oct 2013 trip. It is about 30 minutes from the Fair and 30 minutes from downtown Guangzhou. The hotel is grand and new and very reasonably priced compared to hotels of similar level. We were however disappointed with some details: the marbled floored and walled bathroom is really beautiful but the bath tub was perhaps not installed properly and water marks can be seen on the wood panel that divides the room from the bathroom where the bath tub sits. Mold is seen on the edges of the panel and the carpet in a hotel that is under 3 years old. It may seem like a minor issue but mold can cause severe allergies in some people so watch out for that. The service at the Chinese restaurant was also lacking, I was the last customer at 2pm before they had their break at 2:30pm and I ordered a bowl of noodles and a dish of dim sum. They forgot about me, I waited for more than 30 minutes and they were all eating and talking on their phones. The food was decent, though. There was also a young man in suit who checks on people walking into the hotel at night. We (2 women) walked in one night and was "questioned" about our business there. We did not quite understand the situation so we just showed our room card and he nodded and walked away. We started to wonder if there are some suspicious activities going on in the hotel at night time? Overall a pleasant stay at a reasonable price but just be careful not to have as much expectation as the grand look of the hotel. Front desk and porters were courteous and competent, executive lounge staff was polite and helpful.
