Have always been staying this hotel when it was under the Sofitel group.
Hotel still looks exactly the same. Service staff seem to have a better command of English now though. However, after 2.5 years since my last visit, Xiamen seems to have changed quite a fair bit. The obvious changes are that, there are more overhead bridges, dustbins and people do not light up that much indoors.
Back to the hotel, it's worthwhile choosing a club floor room! Room wise, it is the same as the normal ones but the perks are free wifi within the hotel and complimentary access to the club lounge which made us very happy with the free flow of drinks and snacks available.
However, I thought I read in the hotel's guide that there are butler service for club floor guests. However, not that we required but was a tad disappointed when I called Front Desk asking for assistance to reconfirm my flight and they transferred me to Business Office who in turn advised that I should call the airlines myself. No big deal about it, but thought it could have been better handled.
Overall, still my preferred hotel when I go to Xiamen.
