I travel to China frequently and have stayed in many different hotels and cities. This is one of the better experiences I have had. The hotel is quite recognizable making it easy for the taxi drivers to find. The lobby layout is somewhat awkward, but the bellmen and concierge were very helpful in locating the front desk tucked away some 20 to 30 meters from the entrance. Check-in was quick and efficient. I was in tower C on the 10th floor. I absolutely despise those elevators that require you to slide a room key into the tiny slot in order to select your floor. Yes, this was one of "those" hotels. Hopefully they will join the 21st century soon and use prox-cards like many other Chinese hotels. The room was fairly large, well decorated, with decent quality appointments.
The bathroom was very nice and very clean. No mold, mildew, or other signs of not being spotless. The amenities were only fair quality. The bar of soap was the coolest item, if that tells you anything. The toothbrush is single-use because it breaks so easily. But lets face it, we rarely use those things.
Lighting was good, as was the view of the city wall. Great for a morning or evening walk. Now lets get to the important thing - the bed. The bed was very comfortable with an abundance of pillows - 6 per bed plus the decorative pillow. The mattress is covered with a feather-bed, and the duvet was luxurious.
All in all, I would stay here again!
