I'm giving this place 5 stars because I don't think there's a better hotel in Shantou. I probably couldn't have wanted more in a hotel, given my location, so by default it was perfect.
I booked an Executive Floor room...I don't think I'd do that again--breakfast was included and was served in the 27th floor lounge. Most other executive/club level floors have evening snacks and drinks--this place did not...That was a little disappointing. The breakfast was pretty weak--everything looked old--I was the only person in the lounge all 3 of my days there. They did make me an omelet which wasn't bad.
The lobby is huge and modern...Well appointed. The rooms are clean, nicely decorated and rather comfortable--keeping in mind this is China and almost all beds in China are rock hard and uncomfortable...The bathroom was nice, the TV was small but had 7-8 English channels.
Some complaints below about the lack of free water in the room. I was brought 2 small bottles nightly, however, facing the check-in desk, the exit towards the right, there's a small pastry shop--water is RMB4.00 each there.
In summary, will surely stay here again when I return to Shantou. Good hotel!
