This is the first time I have been to Xian. I selected Shangri-la Xian purely due to its brand. However, it is to my surprise that the service here was very personal and attentive. The day we arrived xian was a very foggy day (due to air pollution in China). The concierge people were so sweet to provide us a very good quality mask, when my family and I went out for a walk. Another surprise was the guest relations people sent me a birthday cake(of course on the hotel) and card on my birthday. I had never had such a wonderful experience before.
