As I was born in this city, specifically in the area where this hotel is located, so I maybe very biased writing this review.
I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights for Xmas & New Year holiday. It's relatively new compared with other 4& 5 star hotels in Xian. It's located in the bustling business spot-Xian Hi-Tech park which is the most modern district in this ancient town.
The hotel can be categorized as luxurious type, spacious room with upscale decor. I enjoyed the hotel swimming pool and jacuzzi. The experience with hotel restaurant is good, reasonaly priced for its standards.
Across the street, two big shopping malls with Starbucks (free internet) & Pizza Hut (America's Pizza Hut Not in American fast-food style). You can also find plenty local restaurants within walking distance.
As for location from a tourist perspective, given cheap taxi rate in Xian and major attractions spreading across the city, I don't think it will be of serious concern.
I don't like the fact that guests were allowed to smoke in the hotel lobby, of course, I probably should not expect "smoke-free policy" in the first place.
