“The number 1 choice in Huadu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

While overall Huadu is not a city you would normally like to visit (it is about 45 minutes from Guangzhou and 15 minutes from Guangzhou airport), if you have to be in this city, this is probably the hotel you should stay in.

Based on my experience, it is the best hotel in Huadu. It has very spacious and nicely decorated rooms design, excellent service, very reasonable restaurant and a fully equipped gym. There is also a full size swimming pool but I have never tried it.

Enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: I believe all the rooms are the same (which is good news :)) However, the view from the rooms watch...

This relatively new hotel in Guangzhou is set in the manufacturing district of Huadu and for me , close to a number of key business suppliers . The main criteria when looking for a travellers hotel is cleanliness , restaurant with long opening hours, a hotel bar, good size rooms with quality shower & comfortable bed and the opportunity to get a nice cup of coffee or American breakfast on site to start the long working days . The Crowne Plaza ticks every single box here .. And its about 10 mins to the International Airport ! What makes it really special is the staff .. The staff at this hotel are kind, accommodating , helpful and really make your stay welcome & comfortable .. When a long way from home, it feels nice to come back to the familiarity of the Crowne Plaza Huadu after a busy day. Certainly well recommended to any business traveller

Room Tip: High floor ..they seem a bit quieter

Very nice hotel with friendly staff!
Nice and clean rooms with everything a business traveler needs.
Free wifi and wired high speed internet in the hotel and rooms (I measured 12Mbit/6Mbit up/download)
Restaurant is simply perfect: nice buffet and very good breakfast buffet.

Before we always stayed in the Novotel, later transformed to Pullman, of Baiyun airport.
The ever increasing price made us look for another hotel.
Sorry Pullman, this hotel is a lot cheaper and to our taste even (a little) better.

One negative point?
OK: it's really not easy to find the free shuttle bus in the airport.
But now we know so that is also solved! :)

Keep up the good work!

This Hotel has really 5 stars; rooms are big and comfortable, from the check in to restaurant all people are speaking english; if you booked the business rooms you can have enjoy fro free aperitif with appetizer free of charge, or to have breakfast in separate rooms.
Wifi in the rooms is working perfect and fast, without any interruption ( I used skype video!).
Also the restaurant with buffet is excellent . I 'll came back soon.

Stayed here while having a 36 hours transit at Baiyun Intl after being advised against staying at Pullman by a friend who frequents this part of the world. The staff were amazingly polite (this being China...) and most of them spoke functional English to my delight. My 4th floor room was spacious, tastefully furnished with business-centric amenities. The free WiFi+wired internet was blazingly fast, occasionally reaching 40 Mbps. Toilet and bedding were top notched, as expected from a 5 star hotel of course. Food was relatively cheap (I had western most of the time), and they serve one of the best breakfasts in all of China. There is a large garden by the swimming pool to help you unwind and relax. Didn't try on the recreational facilities though. Free luxury van shuttles are available hourly to and from Baiyun Intl. To take the free shuttle you had to go to gate 30 (ask the information counter how to get there), get a sweaty and tired while waiting for the hourly shuttle. Don't follow the crowd (like I almost did) and board the wrong bus. The shuttle is a red people carrier with Crowne Plaza clearly marked all over it. From then on its a 10-15 minutes ride.

The only downside of this hotel - its location that is neither near the airport nor the town. There is nothing, absolutely nothing adjacent to the hotel (apart from more hotels) The nearest town Huadu is an RMB 40 taxi ride away. Most taxis hailed by the road will refuse to take you there saying that they are from Guangzhou city and have little knowledge of Huadu, so try your luck!

Highly recommended if you want to stay in the hotel all day long, absolutely no if you plan to explore.

Room Tip: There are smoking floors, avoid them if you don't smoke.

I chose this hotel during the canton fair. The hotel has good building, infrastructure but you should consider this hotel as a hotel in Mars. You do not have anywhere to go nearby and there is no market, no shop, no supermarket, nothing in the neighborhood. The rooms are clean and big enough with new amenities but this does not give you the comfort. The hotel is located near airport but not too close like Baiyun Airport Pullman. It takes 10 minutes ride. This have a good aspect and bad aspect simultaneously. When you take a cab after waiting in a long queue, when you give the address to the taxi driver, they may pretend that they do not know the address or they make a gesture asking you to take another car. This is because that they have waited in their own queue and they like to have a customer to pay them at least 150-200 RMB. In this case keep calm, let the driver play as much as he likes then offer him 20-30 RMB more let him start the cab and go to your destination. The better option is that using hotel shuttle from the airport. Ask reception for the schedule at the time of . The hotel had offered a package for canton fair, including a free ride. Even if you had not taken this package, there was a shuttle. The Fair is very far around 40 minutes bus ride. I believe if you take a hotel in Foshan (there are good hotels and cheaper than this one), each trip may be less than this. They gave an schedule for the shuttle from the fair to the hotel and vice versa but they never did respect this schedule and you should wait at the bus until it will be full.
I did not check the restaurants but the breakfast in comparison to other crown Plaza hotels in China was simpler. If you like go to the city it is better to forget this hotel. The taxi fare will be too much each time.
I would never come back to this hotel due to its location.

I tried Crowne Plaza Huadu when I had a 15hr stop in Guangzhou. Very nice hotel and about half the price of Pullman's at the airport. Great service, nice rooms. Its about 15-20 minutes from the airport.

The only problem is that it isn't clear on how to arrange the shuttlebus from the airport to the hotel. I ended up catching a cab there. Shuttle bus back to airport was fine though.
