Went there on my first business trip to Shenzhen. The rooms are pretty big but the feeling I got was that they are a bit "dated" and could use a bit or retouch. Wallpaper peeling a bit in spots and carpet a bit worn out.

The hotel is situated a bit out of the main points of interests in Shenzhen and even though it is easy to reach by taxi, finding a taxi around the hotel is challenging especially during rush hours. A few times it took me up to 45 minutes to get a taxi on weekday mornings! There is a metro station about 5 minutes walk from the hotel but it is on the green line and was not really convenient for me.

The food at the breakfast buffet is decent but mostly targeted at Chinese people who make up the vast majority of the clientele.

Staff was friendly but most will not speak English so bring your Mandarin phrasebook with you!

First of all the correct name of the hotel is South China Harbour Plaza hotel. I mention this because Harbour Plaza is shown high up on the building and that is the only way to recognize it.
The hotel is part of a commercial building and takes up the 16 - 21st floor with a concierge on the ground floor to welcome you. There are outstanding views across the city, especially if you take a sea-view room. The best part of this hotel are the bedrooms, which are very spacious, and the restaurant/breakfast buffet.
Our bedroom was fitted with a Queen bed, lounger, desk and chair, and satellite TV (HBO and Cinemax were not available, though). For a large room it is sparsely furnished, but still relatively comfortable, though the carpet could have been better. A glass paneled bathroom has walk in shower with hand and overhead shower heads. Fresh fruit is provided when you arrive and the mini bar is well stocked and very reasonably priced compared to most hotels.
The breakfast buffet...
