This time i'm writing my review pretty late (i've been traveling in october 2012) but it still can be helpful to all of you who don't know which hotel to choose in this big city called Guangzhou.
Positive Points: very clean, apartment suite style room (you have a kitchen and a washer and a dryer), next to TEE MALL and another one (forgot his name), you'll find plenty of stores and restaurant (with US chain burger king, pizza hut...), in one word the location is just perfect, you have a wonderful SPA (independent from the hotel but still inside the hotel), food is correct, the breakfast (complimentary) is pretty good, the staff is nice.
Negative Points: the cleaning lady come once per day and usually very late, the pool is not warmed (so pretty cold during the fall period), the staff is nice but could do some effort, the concierge don't help that much.
what you need to know:
the taxi don't speak a word of english and won't make any any effort to understand you (make the doorman of your hotel talked to him before you leave).
if you want to see the canton tower (equivalent to the eiffel tower for them) go directly to the brand new four seasons hotel in the city centre of guangzhou, they have a bay at the top floor with fantastic and uniq due of the city. they have as well a great italian restaurant.
