On our recent trip to China, we went to 7 cities, Guilin being one of the best and in the middle of our trip. Somehow, I stumbled upon something that the Shangri-La calls the Value Rate. I booked it online, on their website. For about $50 more per night, per room, we got airport transfers to and from the airport and we're picked up by a driver who offered us scented, cool washcloths and bottled water in the car. Also included was the buffet breakfast for two every day which was wonderful. There was an incredible selection of food and the wait staff was amazing. Even though, the dining room was filled with tons of people, they remembered us each day and what our preferences were - like preferring my cappuccino extra hot. Additionally included in the rate is unlimited laundry and dry cleaning. They picked up our clothing with 3 minutes of calling and everything was waiting for us at the end of the day on hangers and folded beautifully in wooden boxes with sachets. Lastly, you get late check out (6pm) and free wireless internet. This hotel is top notch with service that rivals any hotel in the world and the value rate package gave us a beautiful river view room with all of these added extras!
