Stayed for 2 nights on a business trip. I was originally booked to stay in their studio apartment. However due to my late arrival, their studio apartments were fully occupied when I was checking in, so I got a free upgrade to a 1 bedroom apartment. The friendly and efficient check in staff apologized for the wait, while they secured the upgraded room for me.
The 1 bedroom apartment was amazing. It was a corner apartment, and there was more space than I could use. The living area had floor to ceiling windows which looked out into the city, and there was so much free room I could probably hold a cocktail party inside!
There was a walk in closet opposite the bedroom, with very helpful sensor controlled lighting. The bedroom was very comfortable, my only gripe being the pillows not offering sufficient support. This problem was easily solved as I had 4 pillows to use. Lighting in the room was excellent, I was able to do my work with ease. The toilets had the standard high quality toiletries found in a 5 star hotel, and towels were generous in size and very fluffy.
Breakfast was on the top floor. The choices weren't particularly inspiring, although I appreciated the egg station and noodle station. Wait staff were friendly and proactive.
There is an indoor pool (which I did not use) and gym on the level below the breakfast restaurant. The gym is not the most well equipped gym around, but it had new equipment which was great to use.
Overall, this Ascott property in Chengdu represents excellent value. They have a very well run property in the middle of Chengdu, with very reasonable prices.
