Nice facilities, convenient location, with a good balance between cost and benefit. Good breakfast buffet, the only problem is that as in the must provinces of China, communication in english is complicated, even in the hotel. About a block of distance there is a nice river side to walk and run in the mornings, public transportation BRT just in front,... More

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... More

We made a one night stopover in Changzhou and were very impressed with the Howard Johnson. The rooms were beautiful and offered great views of the city. The breakfast is terrific and offers a nice mix of Western breakfast staples and Asian dishes. This hotel will not disappoint business travelers or tourists.

I stayed here for one night whilst on a business trip to Changzhou. On checking in I was informed that I would get complimentary breakfast which was a nice surprize as I had not included this in my booking. However after taking the elevator to the 10th floor and after what seemed a long walk down a maze of corridors... More

Really liked this hotel. Food is really good, steak, meat selection, seafood is definitely up to or beyond our Aussie standards. The band was very professional too, and the staff in the restaurant were extremely courteous. It was also refreshing to see such a friendly and well spoken front office european management team too.
