“Unbeatable value, great location for Canton Fair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2011

The value is outstanding. True 5-star hotel at a great price. Get the junior suite if possible. It is spacious to say the least, but the other rooms are great too. Free shuttle brings you to the Canton Fair in the morning, It's a 30-45 minute ride. Get a free ticket the night before at the front desk. Return shuttle doesn't get you back to the hotel until around 6:30PM. If you have a club room and want to enjoy the happy hour, which ends at 7:00, take a taxi from the Canton Fair back to the hotel. It's only around $15-20 US if I recall correctly. I'd recommend the hotel extend the evening cocktail hours since their shuttle gets back so late and everybody staying there is going to the fair. Also, hopefully they've expanded the beer and wine assortment. In October, the only beer in the lounge was Budweiser and Heineken. Nothing light, and nothing Asian. Tsingtao would be nice (and obvious). But the hotel seemed new in October and I'm sure those minor details have been ironed out.

Overall, I can't recommend this hotel enough. At night, you'll see a park from your window with very colorful decorations and a festive atmosphere. Walk over there and check it out. I go over there by myself, and it is very safe. Take your camera. I got room service every night after the lounge, and it was very good as well. Highly recommended.

Superb hotel. Beautiful and functional interior, rooms are designed efficiently and tasteful. Ipod docking, surround sound, big LCD, modern bathroom, wide choice of snacks and drinks in the room, good restaurant in the hotel, shopping mall closeby.
Killer rate for such a luxurious hotel. Unbeatable.
Would definately stay here again.

This is a great hotel, it is very new and it is beautiful. We decided to stay in Foshan because it is close to our relatives that we were visiting. We stayed there during the Chinese new year and the staff handed out red envelope with 5 RMB in it, we thought that was fun. For a couple days before CNY, a huge block next to the park is closed for lots of vendors to sell their CNY flowers, snacks and stuff; this is right next tot he hotel and it was very festive.

The weather was cold there during our visit; for some reason, the hotel did not have heat at the time and the front desk has to bring up a portable heater for us :(

We toured the pool and the workout place, it is very very nice......and it has 2 tennis courts on the 4th floor, only if the weather was nicer!!!!

The hotel is very grand, it is next to a huge mall with a skating ring, tons of restaurants, fast foods and a nice grocery store.

We discovered that there is an ex-military airport near by that only Air United flys there from all over China, it is not far from the hotel. The wireless internet is free but it is not reliable.

We had a room that overlooked the Qiandeng (“thousand lights”) Lake Park. It was especially beautiful during nighttime. The room was spacious, clean and well equipped (nothing was short of). The amenities provided could definitely measure up to the standard of a 5-star hotel. The drawback is the location, i.e. it is situated in an area still under development (October 2010). For comfort and enjoyment, it is worth paying a bit more.

You pay a bit more than in other places, but this is a a real good basis for business trips to Foshan area. Approx 45 min from Guangzhou airport.
At the geginning Iwas disappointed, because currently large parts are still under construction, such as the fitness center and outdoor swimingpool (on top of a terrace in 5th floor. Bed was far too soft -but staff knows it and I would not be astonished if they change it very fast.
But finally the over all impression was more than very good. Staff is welcoming,has a good English knowledge and very helpful. They knew my name on the second day and my preferences. The hotel is located in a nice and relatively calm area, next to a lake (good for a jogging tour) and a shopping center that also has something to offer for western taste. So my weekend here was ok.
Sitting on the terrace,drinking a (good) ice cafe and listen tothe lounge music just makes you feel good. I have seen few places like this in China.
