Although location is great and staff is friendly and service oriented, the hotel is really old and rooms desperately need refurbishing. Breakfast is terrible for foreigners, it's really a Chinese breakfast and not suitable to westerners. This hotel can't be called a 5-star hotel....

…. for a Howard Johnson. Showed some signs of age but overall not bad. The front of desk staff were very helpful and they now know what GBP are in comparison to €. Dining room at night had run out of a lot of the things we wanted (we got their just before they shut), which was a bit disappointing... More

I was very surprised by the welcome experienced at the hotel. I called in advance and arranged for a car to meet me (first time in China!) and he was there, no problem. The only English speaker manageress met me and helped me settle in and thereafter she was gracious and very willing to assist with all kinds of requests.... More

The Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel was first rate. It was extremely well-decorated, clean, and comfortable, and the construction quality was good. It has a very good restaurant with international fare (burgers, steaks) with an excellent breakfast buffet. The hotel also has an excellent Cantonese restaurant on the third floor. Very well-prepared Cantonese and Guiyang-style dishes that brought us back for... More

I've traveled all over China and this hotel sticks out in my mind as one of the best I have stayed at. FYI, we typically stay at mid-range choices, so I'm not comparing this to the Shangri-La or anything. The room was on the small side, but very comfortable, tastefully decorated. I slept really well here because the bed was... More

I stayed at this hotel in June 2009 for a conference attendance and had a pleasant stay. The rooms are cleaned on a daily basis although I had some problems with the draining system of the shower as the water was flowing out fast enough. The staff is friendly but not a lot of them speak English and sometimes it... More

Stayed at this hotel with a healthcare delegation (mainly nurses) who were touring the area. Found this hotel to be excellent and better than our Marriott hotel in Beijing. There are not many Caucasions in this city, so not surprizingly few of the locals or hotel staff speak English. They were very friendly, however, and I could usually made myself... More

Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel is very nice and clean. I had a room that had two double beds. The room was spacious. However, the air-conditioning seems to be stuck at 25 degrees celsius. We called the front desk and they advised us to open the windows because that's as low as the thermostat goes. The Riviera (where you can get... More
