I'm away every second week from home for work, so I'm not so easily impressed by a hotel. This brand new Mandarin in Guangzhou exceeds every expectation.
The trip was a short break away from Hong Kong. The staff here are amazing, from the pickup at the train station, check in, housekeeping and room service.
The rooms are luxurious, stylish and very comfortable, the whole place is so relaxing.
I went for a club room, and the club floor facilities and service are great, no half attempt at breakfast like some hotel club floors, there is a chef on duty for your eggs to be just the way you like them.
The gym, pool are spa are fantastic.
There importantly is such a warmth and generosity of service in this hotel that I will indeed be back many times. They've even provided the supplier details for some of the furniture int he hotel so I can get some.
The new town with the museums etc is only a 30 minute nice walk away. There are many shpping malls right near the hotel and a couple of IT centres.
Make sure you vist Shamin Island while you're there
Treat yourself to a luxury break, this is the spot.
