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.
