I've been to Nanjing many times and stayed at the Sofitel and Westin mostly, trying the Intercon for the first time. Shocked the nice Sofitel and Westin are ranked quite low, but it seems Intercon has a decent ranking. As in the title, this is a hotel of many firsts, and I'll mention them along the way here. I booked a hotel car via email, and like many very good 5 star hotels, the email reply was prompt (within 2 hours). I was picked up at the train station, and this was where 1 of the many firsts started - they started doing my room check-in in the car! They swiped my credit card and gave me my room key in the car, wow. Then we reached the hotel, which occupied probably the tallest tower in the city. Some taxis don't know the Intercon, just tell them Xifeng tower which they mostly know. Then the 2nd first came along when we are at the lift lobby - we have to key in the floor number which we want to go digitally outside the lift, and the computer tells you which lift to enter, and in the lift, there are no buttons, wow. The room is the modern 5 star - large, standing shower, modern tub, flat screen tv, ipod player, transparent glass bathroom etc. After being escorted to the room, 2 more firsts happened - the guest relations officer wanted to take a picture of me for record, and gave me a reminder card to write a tripadvisor review on them - double wow. I chuckled as she gave me the card and i do write quite a few reviews on tripadvisor, without a reminder. We also had lunch at their chinese restaurant, and their sweet and sour mandarin fish was good, as was their service. Their instant service centre service (reached via room phone), bellboy service were very good as well. I didn't go to the pool, gym and bar, and maybe that helped them. I don't often give 5 stars in tripadvisor, but here's 1
