I stayed there for 2 nights while at a conference. In addition to the room, I booked the car service from the airport to the hotel - which wasn't cheap. Upon my tired arrival, it turned out that there was no car waiting for me. It's not like it hasn't happened before to me - but I was disappointed. I was quickly taken care by an English-speaking airport person who contacted the hotel and found a representative from Marriott. After some wait, I ended up sharing a van with three other guests going to Changfeng Park Marriott. What I really appreciated though is that the hotel staff was very apologetic, and not only gave me discount on both rides - so that I really paid just for one - but the hotel rep with whom I corresponded for the reservation called me to personally apologize, which I greatly appreciated. Other than that, my stay was very comfortable. I had a lovely room with the view of the park; the bed was very comfortable; the shower was fabulous, and so was the whole bathroom - it also had a big window; there was a fridge. Breakfast - included in the price I paid - was very generous. As I was there at the beginning of July 2014, the hotel decor included a big golden replica of the World Cup trophy and a life-size cardboard cut-out of Leo Messi... Lobby monitors projected the time of the scheduled games.
I also received some good advice for my few hours of sightseeing. However, don't be fooled thinking that the hotel is close to the metro - it looks like it is, but it's actually a long and boring walk. One evening I had a room service for dinner - and it was not bad, but nothing special, and the wait was pretty long.
Overall, however, I had a very pleasant stay - I would definitely stay there again. It is not exactly close to anything except the conference centre, but taxi to the downtown area was very cheap; and metro even cheaper. The mall nearby is very convenient.
