My girlfriend and I stayed in Sheraton before the Chinese Holidays (1st of October).
The good: very big hotel, new and clean. If you take the lake view rooms, you wont be disappointed. One of the best sunsets I saw in China. The rooms are comfortable and with a very nice balcony.
The bad: the food (western dishes) are quite a rip off. We ordered chicken and a milanese style veal cutlet. The chicken was extremely small. I complained about it but they say that the portions are like that. The other dish was OK in size (3 times bigger than the chicken) but tasted like old oil. Overpriced and not good. I would recommend to stick to Asian dishes.
The breakfast was good, many options both for Asian or Western choices.
The ugly: they charge for everything. You want to ride one of the only 2 bikes available (one is a single bike and the other is a double bike) you need to pay, a little less than 10 usd per hour. Still should be complimentary for the guests (or at least have more than 1 single bike and 1 double one).
We wanted to play ping pong in the gym area, again you have to pay. In this case about 12 usd per hour. It didnt make me feel like a guest of the hotel and I dont think is appropiate that many of the facilities (simple ones as the mentioned) should be charged extra. We walked around for a while and there is some kind of showroom for the nearby properties were they give us 2 bikes for free to use as long as we wanted. From Sheraton, I dont expect this.
The city is small, not too much to do, but is a calm and relaxing getaway from the always busy cities in China, with great views and clean air.
