I am coming for business trips to Shenyang and stayed few hotels in last 2 years. I believe this hotel and Crowne Plaza are only decent options.
Let me explain a bit further,
Location, Shenyang is not a touristic city the only place is old palace that is also cultural heritage site. It is not far from hotel and could reach within 10 minutes by foot. There are some low-mid class restaurant around hotel in almost all directions. Finding a taxi is normally not a problem but depending on day time and season, traffic could be annoying as it is a downtown hotel.
Hotel building is quite nice designed and well maintained, you feel like it is 1 year old hotel although it is older.
Rooms are clean and comfortable, air condition is working well – silent and makes the room quickly warm in cold winter season or cool in hot summer season, there are LED TV, fridge, a nice filter coffee machine as well as iphone docking station. Rooms are all silent despite of being downtown hotel. Carpets and furniture are also clean and/or renewed regularly. Lights in the room are great and you can select as you wish. (I am tired of almost dark rooms in several hotel rooms). Bathrobes are also provided top quality Turkish towels. Stable wireless internet also offered for free in the rooms.
At check-in like other double-tree hotels you receive a fresh baked cookies these are really quite good and I really enjoy every time when I am checking-in. At check-in, all speak good English and quick, I have never had a problem at check-in or check-out.
Executive Lounge, it is at top floor and usually quite empty and offer also a meeting room that is quite convenient for business meetings. There are some soft drinks and quite limited food offer at dinner – breakfast time. It is enough but compare to Hilton or Marriott clearly limited/less. (to enter either HHonnors member or additional charge depending on booking class)
Dinner at hotel own restaurant, there are good discount for the hotel guest and the offer is good and price is fair. Probably it is one of the best western food that is available in Shenyang (although best of the buffet are sushi and grilled fish, I still considered all non-Chinese as western)
There is a small swimming pool, clean and nice similarly training room as well.
Hotel Personal, there are some foreigner supervisors, managers but mainly local people. I have only good experiences and they are quite helpful, time to time, I also received upgrade to better rooms at higher floors.
Shenyang is in general cheap city compare to Beijing-Shanghai therefore hotel rates are also cheaper, I believe it is a good price-value. However you can also consider Crowne Plaza that is a bit far from downtown but also comparable tough normally a bit more costly, but a good park where you can walk and close to a good Korean BBQ restaurant.
