Reviewed May 22, 2014

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 !

Room Tip: Pay extra and get a lake view room, bring some mountaineering equipment and clean your windows !

The hotel itself is very nice and so is the location.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and there is plenty of space to both get some work done and relax. The hotel itself looks very nice too and the staff was very helpfull when we needed tickets for the high speed train to Shanghai. Breakfast was good and the view from the revolving restaurant made it a nice start to the day.

Just across the street is Nanhu Lake which is very beautiful at night with lots of activities going on. Just have alook at my pictures.

The only small thing I have on this hotel was that check out took a long time. I have no clue why but it was a lot of typing on the computer, paperwork etc.

Centrally located and overlooking a beautiful city park and lake, this hotel works well for both tourists and business visitors alike. With three nights attending a trade exhibition, I had the opportunity to experience both quality dining and banquets, and experience again quality dining from an adjacent restaurant and to experience shopping very close by to the hotel. By the way, my business colleagues and I all agreed that the local Ma'anshan cuisine is excellent and quite distinctive!

Most meals are available from the top floor buffet style 'sky restaurant' which works well except during peak periods when the restaurant can be overflowing for the evening meal if the hotel is close to being fully booked. Recommend inquiring from the reception desk about the best times to attend to avoid the crowds.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the park and lake

Room is ok. Bed is comfortable. Quite the usual stuff for the Crown Plaza chain. Free internet in room is only limited to certain levels. Internet is free though at the lobby. Housekeeping staff has a bad habit. Did not close the windows properly after opening it during cleaning (I presumed she had intended to "air" the room). There should be better valued hotels than this in town. There is a Chinese restaurant just next to the hotel called "Big Lantern", which is highly recommended.

Very nice new hotel; bed, bathroom, desk etc all first class. Only one problem: hotel amenities ifeatures a swimming pool. The pool has been featured for at least two years (to my direct knowledge) in various listings for hotels. However, as of May 2011, the pool is "under construction; opening soon". So, don't count on getting wet anytime soon.
