Loved the hotel next to the Pearl river. The property was wonderful, but not much to do after coming back from work/meetings. Tried walking around outside the grounds and seems like a ghost town after dark. Not many people along the river, but it's fully lighted and there are small one person police stations so it makes walking at night alone safer. Hotel staff are very friendly, but have limited English language skills. Room included breakfast. Breakfast was very good with lots of options. Dinner at buffet was not worth the price. Strange, set up almost identical to breakfast, but the actual food tasted much worse. Did better at the overpriced Italian restaurant. Not many dining options available around the hotel. Pretty much ended up eating Italian every night.
