Great hotel. From the hot towel at reception, the cup of tea or the slippers ready to wear when you get in your room, you will be very impressed. You will be greeted with a smile by every passing staff member. They bend over backwards to help you, for example if they see you with luggage they will come running... More

We stayed here for two nights. Everything was nice and the staff were quite helpful. Breakfast was excellent. Great variety and especially important as we are strict vegans. Gym facility is just average, 3 treadmills and some other equipment

This is a very nice business hotel, but the only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is really only 1 person there who speaks English. Yes, many people there can say a few phrases in English, but if you ask a question, you just get a blank stare. We found that there is one British... More

After one hour and half, we changed to a better room. Restaurant great foods and great services provided by Paul while we having dinner. He also very helpful to... More

I usually stay at the Ningbo Sheraton but a colleague mentioned that the Howard Johnson made recent changes and highly recommended staying there.. I found the service to be outstanding. From the minute i entered the lobby and the bellman graciously took my bags to check out - everyone at the hotel went out of the way to ensure I... More

We returned to Howard Johnson after our last visit two years ago. Rooms are clean and comfortable, the service at the front desk and the bell boy were good (definitely much more helpful than the guys at the restaurant). We really hated our experience at the restaurant - food was so-so but we couldn't stand the waitress in the restaurant:... More

Booked a suite based on reviews. I can echo other reviews. Room was very large luxurious and everything in room was great. Free mini bar and plunger coffee was also good. Breakfast was not bad but could be better. There were no dim sum. Choices were quite limited. Western dinner buffet was not bad. This hotel is really trying to... More
