I believe that this was once the only 5-star hotel in Hefei. However, those days are long gone. The Holiday Inn today is barely a 4-star and showing signs of age. The top-floor rotating restaurant no longer rotates (or didn't when I was there), the nice little tap in the bathroom for filtered water no long produces water at all, the windows need a better double glaze to keep the noise out - since the traffic is now much heavier than years ago. As for the health club, well, there are prominent signs saying that this is operated by a third party (i.e. leased by the building's owner to an outside operator) and no responsibility is taken for anything that happens there! A slightly odd warning, so I will leave it to your imagination to figure out why. In short, if you need to be downtown and you like IHG properties but can't afford the Intercontinental, then perhaps this is a good choice. But there are a lot of choices these days. The staff are friendly and helpful, though English is a bit limited, notably among the junior staff on the front desk. Room for improvement to the hardware and the software.
