Reviewed July 7, 2013

We were there for a family wedding and stayed for four nights. We were very impressed with the friendly staff, the cleanliness of all areas, the restaurant and bar, and the spa. The hotel hosted a brilliant wedding and the food was very good indeed. The restaurant has a very good chef I think as the European options were excellent as was the breakfast.
The room was very comfortable and we did not want for anything. Only one thing I have to mention - why is there glass between the main room and the loo and bath area? Sometimes it is not a good thing to be illuminated!
We managed to get wine at meal times which can be difficult in China as the Chinese don't really drink European wine very much - especially white wine. It is never easy though!
All in all I would recommend this hotel and wish hotels in the UK were as clean!

Room Tip: They are all about the same - very good. However the top floor where we stayed appeared to be where...

Spent two weeks at this hotel. Over all impression is Very Good. The room was nice and clean. Didn't have much of a view as the hotel is in between residential area. If you are looking for a nice clean room at the end of your long hard day with a functioning cold A/C, this hotel is great

Food: After two weeks it gets repetitive. Although there are many restaurants around the hotel, i don't speak Mandarin or Cantonese so didn't get to try other places. The buffet was very good and food was tasty!

Service: VERY good.. if i had any concerns they were resolved quickly. In room service was great and customer service was excellent!

Hot Spring Spa : Although not a part of the hotel, if you get a free ticket make sure you check it out. II have written a different review for the spa

Over all i would recommend this place. Don't hesitate to book for your next trip

We spent the last night of our trip in Sichuan at the Crowne Plaza Riverside hotel in Chongqing, which is not located right in the city center but near the South bank of the Yangtzi River. This is -- quite exceptionally for this part of China -- a low rise construction (only 8 floors) in a relatively quiet area. There are a few downsides: the image on the website is rather misleading, because it suggests that the hotel is surrounded by pools and rolling green hills, while actually the pools are not part of the hotel and the green hills are further away; and, contrary to the Sheraton, it has no real riverside location. But our room at one of the Executive floors was brilliant, with all usual amenities and much more -- even gas masks for two (maybe useful in this Chinese Smog City?)
There are far more spectacular hotel lobbies to be found elsewhere, but we liked the atrium with freely flying birds. There are more elaborate buffet breakfasts and dinners to be had elsewhere, but overall we couldn't fault theirs. And what puts this place really apart is the warm sense of hospitality which we enjoyed throughout: almost everybody speaks reasonably good English and seems always ready and available to help you -- especially Lee Li at the reception desk. An easy stroll down to the riverside reveals nice panoramic views; and a short ride by bus or taxi brings you to the city center, first through a lively commercial area;h and then crossing the Yangtzi River over one of the many bridges, which offer lovely sights especially after sunset.

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.

Hotel is advertized as 5-star. In many respects, it is. But I would only rate it 4 1/3 stars or so. In all promotions, the hotel is shown with a pool. It turns out that the pool is part of a spa and hot springs that does not belong to the hotel, and you cannot swim there as a hotel guest. Chongqing (with Wuhan and Nanjing) is one of the "three furnaces of China" so I was really looking forward to relaxing in the pool after a hot day of work. No such luck! Also, the breakfast was more 4-star than 5-star. The food selection was pretty limited, and service was terrible. I had to chase down a waiter to order coffee with breakfast, and another one down to get a refill. This was my 13th trip to China, and I've stayed at some incredible 5-star hotels. This wasn't one. Finally, before you book this hotel, make sure what part of Chongqing you want to be in. This hotel is across the river from the main downtown part of Chongqing. It was where I wanted to be, but it may not be where you want to be.

Room Tip: Upper floors have better views.

The city itself is not worth visiting: large, dusty, dirty, but the stay at that hotel gives you positive emotions. Polite and helpful staff, able to speak English, spacious rooms. I do recommend to try thei spa centre located on the 1 floor. In a walking distance there is a lot of other splendid hotels, and embankment.
