We asked our taxi driver on the way from the ferry (15 minutes) to the hotel if there were any pubs frequented by Westerner's just as we pulled into this Holiday Inn, amazingly, there is an Irish Pub (my favorite kind) smack dab in the middle of this hotel! Imagine that. Many Western people are staying here and we checked in, got into our spacious room and spotted a Burger King through our window, it was just what I wanted to eat at the moment, so this stay started our eerily on track, spooky really.
We were in town to check out real estate. We live in Shenzhen and notice we are all choking & coughing and our 5 year old son has had a persistent cough for months. Time to escape. The general manager took the time to introduce himself and guide us toward different locations hunting for a home. His input was insightful and much appreciated. He took the time to look over us and made us feel at home.
This Holiday Inn is nothing like the ones I stayed in as a child. It has a magnificent entry way with beautiful stained glass and crystal, something I would more expect at a Ritz Carlton. There also is adequate places to sit and visit in the lobby, something I appreciate when touring different cities. This hotel, under the guidance of this general manager is definitely on track for being the best of Zhuhai.
We extended our stay one night, had dinner in their Italian restaurant which was delicious. The breakfast buffet is geared for Chinese as well as Westerners and my Chinese wife and I both loved it very much. The tables are closely attended by friendly staff and there is a great view of the city from many tables by the windows. Couldn't ask for more.
Around the hotel there are many shops and malls, plenty of things to do and cabs are plentiful and cheap. We have decided this our home away from home while shopping for a new home and we feel very comfortable here now. Many thanks to the staff!
