“Fine, especially if you're not paying for it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I came here for a family vacation over Chinese New Year. We'd never book a place this nice (read: unnecessarily cushy) in the US, but this one was booked for us. I stayed in a south-facing room with a king-sized bed (907), and my parents are in 901, which is a suite.

Perfectly good for sleeping and showering, though the bed is oddly hard and your room will smell lightly of smoke after a bit. The wifi is good enough for me to listen to Nokia MixRadio on my phone, but keeps dropping my gmail connection. Things are pretty clean. The hotel conditioner is impossible to use, as it refuses to pour from the bottle despite much arm-swinging coaxing.

The hotel breakfast is ordinary Chinese-cosmopolitan: if you want a glass of water, you'll have to ask for it. The coffee is surprisingly decent, though it's faster to get it yourself than harrying a staff member; consider eating the soft plain bean curd as yogurt (add slivered nuts from the cereal bar, e.g.), as the actual yogurt is oversweetened. I wish they'd turn up the chafing dishes -- many things are lukewarm.

We were trying to watch the annual New Year's banquet in the suite (all eight of us, spread over three generations), and while there's enough seating, the entertainment center's doors don't tuck all the way into the cabinet and partially blocked some seats' views.

Fitness room (4th floor) is a punching bag, stair climber, stationary bike, and two treadmills. No elliptical. Full supply of dumbbells up to 50lb and some weight machines, but no resistance bands, steps, yoga balls, bosu balls, etc. The floor is hard, unlike most gym floors, which are rubberized. My mother was unimpressed by the pool.

After several visits to China, I've learned that the level of expectation for hotels needs to be ratcheted down 1 or 2 notches (stars). I spent 3 nights here and overall my stay was respectable. The room was large and clean, but even though it was supposedly a non-smoking room, the smell of smoke was noticeable. I figured most, if not all rooms would have the same problem so didn't try to get a different room. The mattress was rock hard, very uncomfortable. The room stayed at 23 C even though I tried to make it cooler at night throughout my stay.

Check-in was efficient and my room rate (around 90 USD) included breakfast. Everything in the room worked as expected and there were a few TV channels in English including CNN. Guests are very noisy though, so loud conversations could be heard late at night and early in the morning in the hallway. That's the culture I guess, and one can't fault the hotel.

I had breakfasts and dinners in the hotel's restaurant, which were always buffets. A large selection of food and it was ok but nothing special. Several (most) of the dishes that were to be hot were luke warm or even room temperature. Most of the options were Chinese dishes, and those were more tasty than the few Western options.

Check-out took 15 minutes. There was only one staff member early in the morning and the check-out process for the two guests ahead of me took forever. The staff had excellent English though, which was useful.

Room Tip: As far away from the elevator as possible to help reduce hallway noise.

This is a Sheraton wannerbe, with logo so close to the famous red S makes you wonder how they get away with it. But Sheraton it ain't!

This hotel was booked for us by the company we were visiting but we soon found it is in a smi residential high rise area with nothing around it, no shopping malls, no nice restaurants, nothing to do or nice places to eat!

The staff were well trained and courteous when we arrived close to midnight but we found the company had booked us the super expensive suites when al we needed were non-smoking rooms. We soon found that the non-smoking rooms were a premium price, but they kindly "upgraded" us to an ordinary King "non-smoking".

Soon found these rooms were heavy with smoke and smelled of stale tobacco, seems the no smoking signs generally ignored as elsewhere in China. I had to try out 4 different rooms to find one that did not smelled so bad and the hotel idea of decontamination was a quick whiff of air freshener, doesn't do anything to get rid of the smoke smell that is absorbed into every fiber of the soft furnishings. Even the pillows smelled of smoke so was horrible.

Cons included a ROCK HARD bed, and a thick quilt so unnecessary in this climate, so I cast that off just for sheets and the A/C set at 24C.

Shower was OK, and there is a bathtub. TV has only the Chinese channels and 3 English a couple of movie and CNN.

Free internet was a plus with cable and wifi in the room; cable reasonable but wifi so slow.

Reasonable desk area to work.

Buffet breakfast included in the 600RMB room rate, it was reasonable and included hot food but mainly for the Chinese palate.

Cleanliness could be better, and the construction standards a bit off.

Uniformly well trained and pleasant staff.

I would only recommend if you have work in this area and really want to avoid the traffic and congestion typical of the central area where Marriott is (which I would choose over this hotel any day)

I would not stay here again, even to avoid some traffic delays, it's so out of the way

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms overlooking the big air conditioning units located about Level 4, they whine and gro...

Stayed here four nights to visit family. Nice rooms with an accomodating staff, they are very eager to please. Only drawback is the bed is as hard as a rock, we asked for extra blankets to use on top of the mattress but the bed was still incredibly hard.

If it weren't for the 5-star rating, I would have been more impressed with this hotel. It consists of 2 buildings, the A-building and the newer B-building. The B-building is connected to the main A-building by a 2nd floor walkway, but then you have to awkwardly walk past the restaurant area to get to the elevators. Also, the B-building has a small lobby but with no place to sit. The A-building lobby is large but also has limited places to sit while waiting to meet people.

My standard room in the B-building was clean, well-decorated but a bit on the small side. The major issues were a lack of an iron and a non-working Internet connection. The bed was very firm as is customary in Chinese-brand hotels. Recreational facilities were pretty thorough, including a stylish indoor pool, recreation center with ping pong, pool, karaoke rooms, and sauna. The gym was small with dated, rickety equipment, however.

Breakfast buffet (included in the room rate) featured an excellent selection of Chinese and Western choices and all freshly prepared. No complaints here. The location is pretty depressing as there is virtually no good dining or shopping nearby. My room looked out over a bleak industrial landscape.

In summary, the Sunrise is a good hotel. The room rate was reasonable but it's more of a 4-star rather than 5-star.
