Stay two nights in this grand hotel after 10days in China. The hotel is a beautiful high rise block in a suburb area near a conference/exhibtion centre.

This was my first business trip to Shandong Province. We selected Crowne Plaza Yantai for easy convenience from the airport and our final destination. The hotel was marvelous and lived up to the brand of Crowne Plaza hotels. The staff English speaking capability was outstanding making me as a foreigner feel comfortable and welcome.

The room is excellent - space is large, bed is comfortable, and most importantly, the sea view is wonderful. There is even intelligent toilet seat cover in the bathroom, which is rather rare for Chinese hotels in 2015. Parking is free - very friendly. The hotel is close to the beach - very good beach in northern China. Finally, a... More

Stayed for one night on business, so didn’t really get to experience any significant highs or lows. But my overall experience was very positive. Checkin and checkout were smooth. Rooms were lovely, but not particularly memorable. It definitely served its purpose and didn’t disappoint.

The hotel is nice. It's clean and it seems well mainteined. The restaurants are not at the level of the hotel. Buffet dinner poor quality and selection. Internet is working well and it's free. The common area are very cold due to the ceiling hight, you need a nuclear station to heat up everything.

The hotel is good and has a nice sea view but the fact it is far from the city doesn't make good choice for travelers. After business hours, you feel quite disconnected from the surroundings as there is no activity around

My family had a great time in Yantai, and I am happy we picked this hotel. The staff were not well trained, lacking some of the basic understanding of customers' needs and thus not able to provide quality service.
