Danfeng is a nice refuge in Taiyuan, nicely decorated, clean and comfortable with good service. When I stayed there, the hotel was only open for a month but the staff was already well-trained and very proactively helpful for my entire stay, which was for business so I had no reason to go out and explore the area and can't really comment on the location or proximity to local attractions.
I have two somewhat minor complaints, however--the walls seem very thin, because it seemed like I could hear people coughing and talking from down the hall, and for some reason the other guests in this hotel like to meet noisily in their rooms with the doors open and are not discouraged from it. Also, the hotel advertised that it accepted American Express when in fact it did not accept any foreign credit cards at all. None of the banks nearby had ATMs that accepted foreign credit or debit cards either, so I had to trek across town to find a Bank of China and withdraw cash to pay my bill.
I was grateful that the hotel managers did their best to be accommodating and to make up for the inconvenience over the credit card--their nice attitude saved a situation that would have otherwise been extremely unpleasant. They also promised that they would soon be able to accept foreign credit cards, though I would call ahead to check before arriving late at night (as I did) with no way to leave a deposit.
All in all, you will get a nice, relatively soft bed (for China) to sleep in with a modern and clean bathroom, a decent-sized flat-screen television and reliable broadband.
