I had a one-night side trip to Shenzhen while in Hong Kong on business (where I'd stayed somewhere very budget) and this felt like I really had visited Shangri-La! What an amazing experience from start to finish.
The staff were incredibly professional and welcoming from the moment I walked in the door and the hotel itself looked brand new and luxurious. The staff apologised that there was 'only a twin room' available because it was a last minute booking, but I found myself in a suite sized room with two huge twin beds that were more than long enough, which is not always the case in Asia.
Everything was provided; I took a lovely, relaxing bath with the L'Occitane products provided and slipped into the plush robe, before having a wonderful nights sleep in the comfy beds. I was able to easily access WiFi to check my e-mail and surf the net, which is a refreshing change.
The next morning I had breakfast in the huge and very efficient restaurant, which looked like it catered for every culture and diet. I had not had dinner the night before because I'd arrived so late, but I more than made up for it with a lovely breakfast.
Check-out was quick and easy and one of the lovely, well spoken staff offered to walk me across the square to the office I was visiting. Everything was professional, quick, efficient and painless. I would come back to the Shangri-La again to further explore Shenzhen, as I didn't really get to have a good look around. A real home away from home.
