For the kind of prices you pay at the hotel, you expect top rate service. Unfortunately, my experience here was all but good. It all started out as I arrived. My taxi pulled up in the driveway, and I thought, ah nice, modern building - not bad. It ended there. There were three bell hops/valets in sight but they seemed more interested in everything else but holding the taxi door open for me and helping with my bags. This happened to other guests as well so it wasn't a random encounter. To be fair, the front desk reception was decent (but I wouldn't expect less of a Hilton). The restaurant was unbelievable expensive, especially when you live in China and know exactly how much food here really cost. Service was also a tad bit slow and it took them almost 10 minutes to bring my check even though I was the only one in the restaurant.
In-room wifi was advertised as 'included' in the room cost but I was charged 100RMB. I wouldn't mind paying that 100RMB, except that the internet speed was unbelievably slow.
The hotel is located in a neighborhood undergoing heavy construction, and is constantly dirty and dusty. It is also a distance from the town centre and you need a taxi to get to the restaurants and bars. Overall, not my ideal accommodation and I have definitely stayed in cheaper and better accommodations in China.
