This property is brand new, and the location is one that I really enjoy. It's located south of the main city centre, and is really close to Nanbin Road, where all the best Sichuan restaurants in China are. This location also allows for some spectacular views from the riverfront, although you can see nothing from the hotel itself. It's built into the hillside, so most of the views are poor.
The rooms itself are a bit on the small side, but are nice and new. The bathrooms are similarly appointed, and feature a Japanese-style toilet! My only complaint here is that they are using the AWFUL Holiday Inn amenities instead of the much better Crowne Plaza ones. I hope that they can eventually get those stocked in the bathrooms because the HI products are really cheap and ruin your hair. The rooms are styled in a semi-oriental style, with a lot of wood everywhere, including the floors. I like this, because the carpets are always dirty in China.
The facilities in the hotel are a bit on the weaker side, with no pool and a tiny gym. The hotspring is nice, but be careful. My wife and her mother got some kind of bacterial infection in a certain feminine area from the spring. I didn't have any problems though.
I definitely like this location, and it's easy to get to the centre if you need to. Make sure to have the hotel call a taxi because it's tough to get them in CQ.
