Parkland Hotel Dalian, China "Best Value for Money"
Stay during Aug 16th-18th & Jul 13th-16th 2010
Dalian is an established IT city in China and I happened to go there twice for customer meetings and establishing contacts. Parkland was a perfect place to mix business with leisure. One can take a morning walk along the beach, go to office and relax at the Singhai square with a cosmopolitan crowd. The service of the hotel includes a touch of perfection in everything, from basics to luxury. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The food is excellent and presentation has a special attention. And all of it comes at a mere 3/4th the rate of equivalent hotels. They have a monday special Indian dishes on the menu, a special delighter to taste buds!
Parkland could train their staff a bit more on basic English.
All in all, a very fulfilling experience at Parkland.

This Dalian Howard Johnson delivers more than it promises with friendly service, great rooms and a good location.
While the beds are a little too hard and the staff speak very little English, I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. In China, Howard Johnson is certainly not a 2-star motel; rather, it qualifies for international 4-star standards and is reminiscent of a new Marriott in Europe (minus the bedding).
Free internet is a bonus, while the gym and spa are adequate and good value.

If going to Dalian, this hotel is a very good alternative to the much more expensive Shangri-la and other 5-stars.

This hotel is currently a little bit off the track, but in reach of the beach (~15min walking distance), the exhibition center and restaurants. ~20mins to downtown, getting a taxi was not a problem.
The rooms (we had a junior suite) are brand new and very nice, well equipped (did not find a hair dryer), clean and quiet.
Breakfast had a lot of choices (freshly made Chinese noodles!) and was tasty. Staff is helpful and friendly, requests are handled immediately.

I've spent there only a night, but I can complain about anything. Comming from India used to higher temperature I'd appreciated heaters in the rooms since the weather was quite cold and windy.
English comunication was not easy with all the staff at the reception, but as a reward you are entitled to take an apple (I've not used the offer :-)
For the nice room you pay about 500 RMB.

We stayed at the Howard Johnson Parkland Hotel in Dalian, China for a week in October 2008. We understand that it had just opened in August 2008, so it was essentially brand new. The hotel is a very short walk to the International Expo Center in Dalian, so if you are in Dalian for a meeting at the Expo Center, the Howard Johnson Parkland and the China Air hotel are by far the most convenient, and my impression is that the China Air is not as nice. The room was nice, but nothing special. It seemed like many of the staff were still learning their jobs. The staff did not have much of a customer service orientation, and most of them didn't go out of their way to be helpful; perhaps they didn't even know what was expected. English language skills among the staff were in short supply, so there were several communications gaps as well. On one occasion, a housekeeper came in to clean the room and spent several minutes seemingly haranguing us in Chinese about something we had done/were doing. But, we have no idea what she was talking about. The hotel had 24 hour room service, but ordering was a challenge to the language barrier. The hotel restaurant was one of its highlights: an extensive buffet that changed daily and also with chefs who would cook to order soups and seafood (lots of fresh shellfish).
