“Great home away from home"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I have now visited this hotel property for the past 2 years, approximately 9 times. It seems that everytime I revisit, the hotel staff continues to offer a consistent service and hospitality. The key is that I know what to expect when I am there. The amenities that the hotel offers fills my every need from excellent and diverse food to excellent exercise facilities, including a beautiful pool. Everything is available at the hotel, including a very professional staff in their Business Center to meet my every business needs, including fully furnished business amenities in their meeting rooms. All the rooms are spacious and are designed in a manner that does not make you feel cramped. Because of the shortness of my trips, I feel that I must get things done in a timely manner. The hotel offers me the luxury of doing this with the services on the hotel property.

I would highly recommend this hotel for your next visit to Qingdao.

Room Tip: All the guest rooms are spacious and the "City wing" offers a good view of the city.

Hv been one last night after a long trip in China before taking the flight out to Kix. Lobby is impressive and check in (at a couple of different locations) was quick and friendly.
Rooms are gorgeous (not sure of room type, please check on the website when booking) as somebody else arranged. Wide, view on the skyline from a high floor, large bathrooms and nice toiletries, good internet connection. Club rooms guest can have breakfast at to floor lounge and free drinks in the evening (nice for chatting quietly with friends).
The hotel has not a minus we often find in China: super concept and bad making when coming to details. Bathroom as a double door opening on the room (usefull when you travel with a nice girlfriend...) but when closed is assuring a quite good privacy.
Breakfast buffet in the morning was just too wide ... I believe suitable for any taste.
Qindao is a nice city in China (relatively...) and the hotel was a nice surprise. Cant remember the price but probably around 200 usd that was quite worth for the overall quality.

This hotel lives up to the brand’s legendary reputation in Asia for flawless intuitive service. The level of training is difficult to describe without experiencing it first hand. A traveler need not want or ask for anything as the staff seem to “just know” what I needed. By simply making eye contact you are met by a warm smile from everyone.
Café Yum is the all day dining restaurant and serves a huge buffet for 3 meals daily there was an a la carte option but it looked somewhat awkward and did not entice me to stray from the well stocked buffet.
The hotel has 2 separate towers. The city wing is the original hotel with the newer valley wing being added recently. I stayed in the city wing on a previous trip and while it is clean and the bed was extremely comfortable and it has all the Shangri-la amenities, it just feels slightly out of date. A special promotion at check-in for an additional RMB 400 to upgrade my room to the new Valley Wing was well worth it! Sleek modern and comfortable rooms are accompanied by exclusive front desk and private lounge staff that anticipate your needs. Snacks, happy hour beverages and breakfast were also all included in the lounge with this package. There were beautifully appointed meeting rooms in the lounge as well that I plan to take advantage of on a future trip.
The lobby lounge had a pianist and an attractive female solo vocalist that played in the evening. I took advantage of a Chilean wine promotion which cost RMB 198 for free pour and my glass was constantly topped up.
A business dinner in their Chinese restaurant Shang Palace was probably the highlight food experience. The level of English spoken by the attentive servers was excellent and the signature dishes that were recommended to us were delicious. I strongly recommend the sparerib that is carved and de-boned tableside.
There are TA reviews indicating construction noise affecting their stay. While there is construction outside the hotel, as is all over Qingdao, I did not notice any sound in the evening at all in the evening. I look forward to my return visit.

Room Tip: Valley Wing rooms are well worth the additional cost. Higher floors with room numbers greater then 6...

Valley wing with its 20th floor lounge was fantastic. Not the usual tables and chairs, but truly a lounge experience with well trained and attentive staff, private seating areas for business, and wonderful views of the city. Breakfast was wonderful. I had a corner suite with large living room for private meetings, lovely fruit and water set up. Spilled something on my shirt and laundry service stepped up to have it cleaned before I checked out for a morning flight. Wonderful hotel.

The Shangri-la Valley Wing is of very high quality with an added bonus of access to the Executive Lounge and Health Club. The ladies in the Valley Wing Executive Lounge are very friendly and proffessional.

Room Tip: Choose the Valley Wing for extra special service

As Shangri-la's ad video is one of the best I've seen so is the experience from being at Shangri-La in Qingdao. Smooth check-in (and check-out the net day), good indoor facilities, good location - accross the street from sea-side promenade make the stay a nice experience. And if after some time you are recognized and treated as a returning customer - even better.

After tring some other hotels in the city, I do recommend Shangri-La as the best choice. And Shangri-La has most probaly the most diversified breakfast offering.

Room Tip: Go for Valley Wing rooms
