There is an old wing and a new wing to this hotel and one needs a guide to negotiate one's way around the hotel. I had a room in the new wing (VIP wing) which was very nice, similar to a room in a Fairmont. I stayed here for a conference so had to try to locate various meeting rooms and restaurants.The staff are very friendly, and are posted throughout the hotel to try to guide you to your destination. Unfortunately, their level of competence in English, practically at every level in the hotel, is not at the same level as other major centres in China. Their friendliness, and desire to assist almost overcomes the problem but it can be frustrating. The restaurants are okay, but the one that offers the buffet seems poorly organized. When you see the amount of food that must go to waste each day, it is startling. The gym is poorly equipped and a disappointment for such a major hotel. If they want to attract North American customers, they need to up their game.
