After the horrendous WuKe Hotel experience, I changed to the Liaoning. It is very conveniently located by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, other universities, as well as different tech companies.
It is clear that some of the luster from Royal King times has faded with the new management. It does not seem that investments are made to the property, i.e., it is a matter of time until it disappears.
The rooms are spacious and nice. Things are clean, however, some of the infrastructure is crumbling. Several of the vendors in the hotel mall are gone with only the gym left (which you can use for free if you stay at the hotel). If you get the government rate it is about 500 RMB/night (breakfast included) which is a good price. Otherwise they will ask for close to 1000 RMB, at which point it is not worth it. Note that the beds are hard.
As stated elsewhere, stay on the south and west sides. You have the railway to the east and the 4th ring road (aka highway) to the north. Staff is friendly and very helpful.
Breakfast buffet is extensive. Be sure to be there early (6:30) otherwise the Chinese retirees will beat you to the veggies on the buffet and these are rarely restocked.
Overall an OK experience, good price for the value. It is, however, far from all touristic sites.
