It is a smaller China city so not a real vibe in this city. But this is a nice Oasis , with a great gym, an indoor pool so work outs covered, and the food was serviceable and the hotel price is very reasonable. I consider ti the best property in the city.,

Location: Central Yixing near city government building. 10min walk to the central park. Not on the water. Room: Very Good. What you would expect for a 5 star. Actually Hojos in China are much higher end. We were in a suite which is worth paying a bit extra for the space. Bed and furnishings very comfortable. Facilities: Good. Indoor pool... More

I came to Yixing for visiting a factory. The hotel is certainly a 5-star, situated in a beautiful city. Clean rooms, nice restaurant, and with live signing at the lobby bar. This hotel is well maintained and I enjoy staying here.. Keep up with the good work.

Howard Johnson Garden Plaza Hotel is the first international chain hotel in Yixing. It has everything a 5-star hotel could offer but only charges you at a 3-star hotel price. I traveled to Yixing for business many times over the past three years and always chose to stay at HJ Garden Plaza for its great value for money. This hotel... More

As a frequent business traveler this hotel's room facilities really make me feel like home. I could always recharge myself for another busy day! Of course, the live music performance in the lobby is my must-do event for my happy hour."

This is my 3rd stay at this "5 Star" hotel in the past 4 months. I had no complaints during my first short stay, then I noticed the quality had slipped a little on the second stay. Now on the 3rd stay I am very dis-satisfied, I would rank this as a 3 Star hotel. Breakfast has deteriorated alot, the... More

The hotel is spacious, nice, with great breakfast buffet, my room was however awfully distant from elevators. Rooms are nice, clean and new. Does not reach Sheraton level, but prices are more friendly. I guess best hotel in the city.
