I stayed at this hotel on a business trip for two nights (16 to 18 April). It's 45 minutes from Tianjin airport and is in a central location. Check-in and out was efficient. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff try their best to please guests however if your Mandarin is lacking (mine was) then communication can be testy at times and they may appear curt when that wasn't intended.
Breakfast buffet has quite an extensive spread. Dinner on the 33rd floor revolving restaurant was nice. Good all-round views and average food however table service could be improved.
There's a night club on the 2nd floor with loud music hence rooms on higher floors are better if you prefer some peace and quiet.
No free wifi in rooms - LAN cables provided in room and paid PC access at Business Centre. However you can access free wifi in lobby by logging into the ground floor coffee shop system. When I enquired about free wifi I was told that there was none (perhaps I couldn't make myself understood) hence was grateful to be able to access it in lobby area.
For those planning to take the high speed train from Tianjin station to Beijing (or elsewhere) it's a 45 minute ride from the hotel to Tianjin train station where there are frequent high speed trains to/from Beijing (RMB 54 one-way for economy class with 30 minute travel time) every 20 to 30 minutes. You can also take the high speed train from Tanggu station to Beijing however there are only about 5 trains a day and it takes an hour to Beijing. This is nearer the hotel. For foreign visitors planning to buy train tickets please remember to bring your passport along or you won't be able to buy tickets.
Convenience stores and some shopping malls are nearby. Overall, average hotel stay.
