Got stuck in Guangzhou on Friday evening due to flight delays to Beijing (a common occurrence in China). A Chinese work colleague was already staying at the hotel and quickly booked me in.
A quick taxi ride, an efficient check in and I was in my room. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom a bit small but spotlessly clean and plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was reasonable - usual buffet style.
The bar was pretty deserted - no atmosphere.
Disappointing if Holiday Inn aren't renewing the franchise - they are generally OK in China. Maybe they suffer from the fact that they were one of the first chains into China and therefore the properties could be seen as a bit old.
Overall I thought the hotel pretty good
