My wife and I have stayed at the New Mainland quite a few times with a group of people who travel to Guangzhou annually. It has its good points and its bad.
I like the buffet breakfast that is included in the room rate. It offers a large selection of Chinese and Western dishes that are replenished frequently and the quality is good. The menu is constant though and changes very little from day to day. It also is frequently very crowded with people ending up at extra tables out in the hall or sharing tables with strangers.
The rooms are reasonably clean but could use a good updating. New tv's and internet access have been added in the last few years, but carpets are old, bathrooms are old and the beds are incredibly hard and uncomfortable.
The staff are more helpful and service-oriented than previously but they still have some way to go.
The clientele is mostly businessmen and women from Russia, Africa, the middle east, etc. This is not a hotel for North Americans and Europeans on vacation.
