When you travel overseas, you must know and understand the culture. When we checked into the JinJiang hotel on October 11, the room was stifling hot. Outside was hot and humid and the room was miserable. We asked someone to come and turn on our air conditioning. They sent someone who spoke no English so it took awhile for us to find out that air conditioning is turned off the first of October. When the hotel amenities say 'air-conditioned public areas' that is a tip that the room might be hot. Luckily the windows opened and it cooled down at night but if you are going to be in the room during the day, it was pretty miserable. The location was excellent if you want to shop at Madison Avenue shops. Also, it is close to the river so there is an opportunity for a river stroll. Breakfast was wonderful.
