Stayed here for two nights. Room well equipped and perfectly clean. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The Hotel is situated beside a lake which has a large promenade which comes to life every night when the locals come to have some fun with their amazing kites, which light up the night sky, and their in line roller skates ! Lot's of dancing to traditional Chinese music just completes the picture !
The Hotel has a revolving restaurant on the 27th floor which is worth visiting for the photo opportunities alone ! I had a good dinner one evening but the breakfasts were blighted by the bain of my life, the dreaded "buffet" breakfast where unless your lucky and get your timing right all of the hot food is stone cold !
All of the windows are filthy on the outside but there is nothing the Hotel can do about that as this is due to the effects of heavy industry.
Only drawback for me was that the ducted air conditioning was as much use as a chocolate teapot. The first night I could not get the room temperature below 25 deg C and on the 2nd night I only managed to get it down to 23 deg C.
I would certainly stay here again !
