I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at this hotel. I was booked here by my employer and didn't expect much from a Holiday Inn. I may have to re-visit by prejudices. This, however, was a terrific hotel. I have stayed at lots of hotels in China over the years and this right up near the top. The room was well designed for a business trip (possibly a couple would have been a bit cramped. Aside from the bed -- which was huge -- horizontal spaces were on the small side. There was a coffee table. It was small. There was desk space. It was small. There was a built-in ledge for suitcases. It was small -- too small to open my admittedly large clam-shell suitcase. The bathroom (shower only) was excellent. The bed was comfortable. The room was quiet. The wifi worked (as well as internet connections can work in China) and there was a wired connection if you preferred one. Tissue test? Check. There was a box of tissues. Shaving mirror test? Check. They had one. Plentiful complimentary bottled water? Check. Breakfast was good (full range of Chinese breakfast dishes, of course, but also Japanese and America. Egg station -- good omelet, waffle station -- complete with whipped cream and berries, proper American-style bacon cooked fresh for you if that's what you want. Large selection of breads and pastries that won't threaten bakers in France or Denmark, but were a welcome reprieve from steamed buns and congee). Staff helpful. Check-in and check-out were both quick. Although many staff don't speak English, they would always find one who did. When I asked the concierge for some local directions he came outside with me and literally pointed me on my way. Complaints? So minor as to be irrelevant. Could have used a couple more hangers. When I was there the hotel was hosting lots of kids -- perhaps a school group? --so there were lots of ten year olds in the breakfast room. There were also several families with young children. All were very well-behaved, but it did rather clog the breakfast queue if you were in a hurry. And as others have commented, the room thermostat really doesn't do anything (a common trait in many hotels in China. Perhaps it's government policy?) Would I stay again? Absolutely.
