A new hotel that is conveniently located if you need to go to the Shenzhen Convention Center. You could actually walk to it, or take a 5-minute taxi drive. It boasts 5 stars but is clearly a level down most Chinese 5 stars I have been to. It is also moderate in size so easier to get to and around, without multiple levels, ballrooms, banquets and events that sometime make some larger hotel annoying.
No problem with the new room, furnitures, view, soundproofing... just the overall hotel equipment and services are a bit light for a 5-star hotel. The breakfast is very decent both to Asian and Western standards but again, clearly under the size of typical 5 star buffets you could get elsewhere.
Nevertheless a prime, functional choice considering prices about 1/2 that of other 5 star hotels during the convention I went to.
Note: make sure you have the proper address and even print the location map from their web site, as it is probably not yet known to all taxi drivers by name...
