Went for CNY with a special deal. Very nicely located in the center of town, but about a 10-15 minute walk to the nearest metro station. Very close to the GZ Zoo.
Inside it is a very nice hotel. Very clean and modern. had a luxury suite which was very roomy, and the bathroom was huge, about 1/3 of the total room. We went with our 8 y/o son, but they were out of rollaway beds due to high occupancy during CNY. Luckily he's not too big and was happy with a bed made up on the chair/ottoman in the room.
The pool and hot tub were very nice and never very crowded when we went. They also had a good gym along with a ping pong room, a yoga room, and a wii room, loaded with a ton of games and wii fit equiptment.
There is a seven eleven located in the back corner of the hotel, just go out the fron door and around to your left until you get to it. An incredible american restaurant is also nearby, just look up 13 factories.
Skipped the spa, as it looked pricey. I'm sure it is fine for those not on a budget. Everyone was very friendly, and their English was very good for the most part, we had very little trouble making ourselves understood.
Had room service for breakfast, and it was all good and decent value, but don't order the french toast. They brought up to tiny little pieces of bread that we sent back and switched for waffles, which they did no problem.
