On a business trip to Changzhou recently we stayed at the Sheraton Wuji. Having stayed at many hotels both international chains and local ones, my experience has been very hit or miss. Just because there is a well known flag managing a hotel does not always guarantee either good facilities or service.
This hotel was a really pleasant surprise - it ticked both boxes. Best of all was the service. The staff were friendly, polite and clearly well trained. I was particularly impressed with the lobby bar where not only did I get a really good gin and tonic, (water glass sized and really delicious for a paltry 45 RMB), but the girls at the bar did a really nice job of being attentive but not hovering.
The buffet dinner was quite good at Feast restaurant although the more poplar items like snow crab legs and tempura were predictability lacking in quantity. That said the variety and quality of the food was good not just at dinner but at the breakfast buffet as well.
The rooms were nicely appointed, very clean and everything worked well. I am not a huge fan of the 'fish bowl' bathroom idea where there is a glass wall between you and the rest of the room but the electric blind made getting privacy easy.
So overall I was really pleased with this hotel. I would say that if you stayed in this exact hotel with the same staff in a major city whether Shanghai, Hong Kong or Paris, you would have the same good experience. Kudos to the management who I think did a very good job of delivering international standard facilities and service in an unlikely location.
