The Crowne Plaza is in a great location- right near several shopping malls and a short walk from the ocean, but if you're looking for sandy beaches, those are pretty far away.
As IHG Platinum members, they upgraded us to a suite. It was very nice and clean, though it's showing its age. The fitness center and pool were great and the staff was always friendly and helpful. Our room faced north so it wasn't such a great view- just buildings and a little bit of Fu Shan.
At check-in, we were told we get two breakfasts, but the next day, we were given a bill for over RMB300. I explained to the waitress, she talked with the manager and they found I was mistakenly told the rate included breakfast, but that they'd waive the charges. I thought it was handled very professionally.
The hotel seems better suited to business travelers. During this stay with my family, we were also at the Hyatt Regency. It's a little more expensive, but I felt that it was a far better hotel- especially for leisure as it's right by the beach and mountains. Still, we had a good stay at the Crowne Plaza and very satisfied.More
