When my local colleagues booked me at a Howard Johnson hotel I was a bit apprehensive. The HJ brand in the US is not known for high quality rooms or service. However, when I entered the beautiful lobby I knew this was not a typical US HJ hotel. The hotel check in was efficient, and the rooms were large, well maintained, and comfortable. My room had a huge bathroom with separate free-standing tub and walk in shower areas. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the desk in the work area had good lighting and plenty of space. The quality of the sheets and towels was very good. The rooms were quiet and the sleep quality was very good.
The breakfast buffet had lots of western and Asian choices and the service was good. During my Asian trip I had stayed at other hotels in China that had larger or better breakfasts, but the HJ did a great job.
There were a few times that i tried to communicate with local staff in English and had some problems, but their English language skills covered all the basics. I would definitely stay at the HJ again on my next trip to Changzhou.
