I would not rate it as a five star hotel due to the average service offered by the various (polite) staff I encounterd. It is located about 30 minutes away from Chengdu Aiport by taxi (traffic was not heavy). Around half the floors are non-smoking, a small gym is located on the fifth floor, equipment slightly outdated. The gym's heating cannot be turned off. The heated indoor pool is nice, around 15m long, but the cramped changing room is a little disappointing. Oddly enough the spa and jacuzzi is for men only and ladies have to make do without one. Both the gym and pool is opened until midnight. The breakfast buffet is average with the usual western and Chinese choices of food.
There is a large supermarket (Carrefour) located north of the hotel, a 15 minute walk away on Jinxing Road. Another 10 minute walk and there is a huge pedestrian walkway full of shopping centres on Chunxi Road, dotted with small local snack shops.
It is not such a bad hotel but it is not up to the usual Sofitel standards, I cannot say I will stay here again.
