There is less expensive accommodation in Harbin, but if you are a Westerner who really wants Western comforts, this is the hotel to book. The staff is very well trained, English spoken by many of the staff (room service, front desk). The food at the hotel is very good, particularly the buffet breakfast. It is worth the extra charge as you will not find a Western breakfast like it anywhere near by.
The company I work for recently switched contracts to another hotel in Harbin, and I am very sorry for that. I miss staying here, and recommend it highly.
Also, warning to any foreign traveler in China who requests a non-smoking room. It is customary in China, if the hotel is full, to give ashtrays to people in non-smoking rooms to solve the customers request. If you arrive and your room smells like smoke, politely go down to the desk and request a new room. Arriving before 5 p.m. makes switching rooms much easier than if you are a late arrival with few rooms available to switch you to.
