The BaoLiLai Hotel was opened 4 years ago and has the facilities all 5 star hotels should have although service does need to improve a little. It is two hours by car from Hong Kong Island and 20 minutes from the airport.
I was only there for a brief one night visit of a 8 night business trip to Hong Kong but will stay here much more in the future. I stayed in Block A and my very large room had two double beds, walk in shower with a separate bath and large desk. Another reviewer states Block B rooms are even larger!! This was even more noticeable as we had just come from a typical Hong Kong hotel with a small room.
Points to Note - The hair dryer is kept in a loose black bag on top of the safe rather than the normal permanently wired in position in the bathroom or near a mirror. Also the bedside cabinet has a rechargeable torch and packet of condoms - I haven't seen this odd combination reported at other China hotels.
The common areas are clean, spacious and well maintained.
My colleagues and our local guests ate in a private Japanese teppanyaki style restaurant within the hotel. The food was very good.
Staff were not quite as attentive as the Hong Kong hotel we were stayed at the rest of our trip e.g. doormen did not automatically offer to help you with luggage and the lounge waiters tended to stay near the bar rather than circulate and offer to get you further drinks but I'm sure service will improve once staff gain experience.
Given it cost £60 a night compared to £100 in HK I would definitely recommend visitors spend a little longer here should they be visiting both Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
