This place is nice. I don't know if I've stayed in a better Holiday Inn in China, and the staff and the service here are excellent. The hotel rooms are brand new, and are decently sized. The hotel facilities are top notch, and include access to a gym and a pool behind the property. There's also a park for walking nearby. This place however is way too far from Qingdao, which could be a turn off for some guests. We had some business to do, but also had downtime and found it irritating being so far from the centre. My wife (Chinese) managed to find out that there is an express public bus right outside the hotel which gets you to the centre in 45 minutes (and is only 2 rmb), but this might not be the best way to do it if you aren't capable of speaking Chinese. The hotel offers a free service to the city centre, but the times are awful and really make it impossible to go enjoy the city. However, nearby there are a lot of good options for food. Xintiandi is a new development with a McDonalds, KFC, Ajsen Ramen, etc...and there is also Korean food galore outside the hotel. This place completely caters to the working crowd, and it seemed that there were a lot of bored rich women walking around with nothing to do.
Anyways, highly recommend if you need to be in Qingdao. Oh, and this place will make an excellent airport hotel as it is 10 minutes away max.
