If you're wanting a higher-end hotel in Dalian, your best bets are the Shangri-La or the Furama nextdoor - in my case, I opted for the former.
It was my second stay in Dalian and it pretty much met my expectations. Customer service was typical of the brand: very attentive and quick to respond to any requests.
Unfortunately my room - 2023 - was not quite as good as which ever I was assigned during my first stay.
The bedding configuration was a little odd: two king singles placed just far enough apart for you to not be able to walk between them, but with enough of a gap for your to slip into it if you are a little fitful in your sleep...
The WiFi was extremely slow with its connection and download speeds and my shower hot water (temp and pressure) wasn't brilliant either - in the middle of winter, you do appreciate a very hot shower.
