We stayed here for only 1 night (thank goodness!) in the middle of a Wendy Wu Tour of China. What can I say that hasn't been said?! For a start I had trouble leaving a review as it's on TA as 'Talace' but everything that I've seen elsewhere (including in the hotel) says 'Palace'? Well either way...a Palace it is not!!! Our room was not very clean, the bathroom was very dubious and the carpet was disgustingly stained and sticky! We decided not to ask to change rooms as others in our party were saying their rooms were the same. Also some of the occupants of other rooms on our floor (opposite us) looked very very dubious and unfriendly and as we had fellow travellers in the rooms on either side we decided that there was safety in numbers and we'd stay put!! The corridors were dark dingy and not for loitering in, as was the entrance lobby. The breakfast room reminded me of the little staff cafeterias tucked away in the basement of large hotels
in England! The food was just awful, we didn't bother attempting to eat it as up til then we had kept really well and healthy!!!. The tour guide actually told us not to expect much! In our whole tour this hotel would be my only negative complaint of Wendy Wu. I can only think they use it because of it's location (you have several hours free in Xian and it is well located near the square, museum, shops etc, but even that is not reason enough to stay there!). There must be other nice hotels that are well located in Chengdu....PLEASE book one of those not the 'Palace'! Yuck!
