I have stayed many times at the Marco Polo Hotel in Xiamen, mainly on the Club floors. The staff have always been very friendly and check in, both in the lobby and the club floor has generally been processed in a very timely manner. As a frequent guest, I often request specific rooms, and on most occasions they do their best to accommodate my request. The rooms are of a good size and the club room is tastefully decorated. Although breakfast on the club floor lounge is limited in comparison to the restaurant, there is still a nice variety of food on offer. The "cocktail hour" food is also delicious and changes most days. I was pleased that they offered Australian wine as well as a variety of beers.
The location of the Marco Polo is the biggest bonus - it is quiet as it is away from the main road, but a one minute walk to many restaurants along "Coffee Street". In addition, it is located opposite the lake and park which makes for a pleasant outlook from the usual high rises you find in cities. It is an easy walk from the hotel to the CBD (if you like walking) or a cheap taxi ride.
One criticism was that when I was there during the Christmas/New Year period, the Christmas carols played in the lounge were still playing on the 4th January. They should stop on the 1st January.
I will be back.
