Stayed at the Metropark the first several nights of a 15 day tour, and it was a fantastic place to start. Very upscale and a grand lobby. Super clean. Actually the only hotel that gave us lotion on the trip... so standard in America, but all the others gave slippers, toothbrush&paste... everything but lotion. The service was great, and everyone at the hotel was very helpful.
Many hotels had great breakfast buffets, but this one had the best. Good coffee, eggs cooked to order with sample plates to point at, lots of choices of fruit, absolutely every option both western and eastern. Also, it's a very attractive room just off the lobby.
This would be a good choice if you have kids who demand fast food, as not only are there lots of choices for breakfast (and dinner, we heard) -- but a block or two up the street there are a KFC and pizza place-- there might have even been a McDonald's.
Only negative-- some people complained that the beds were too hard. However, I have a feeling that, because it was the first hotel of the trip, they just had not gotten used to the very, very firm beds throughout China.
We loved this hotel!
