Regular traveller to China and just stayed 59 days in Sheraton Jiangyin, excellent hotel. This hotel could not compare although public areas were nice. After check in there was no concierge or bell boy to help with baggage. Room was a bit tired looking, had asked for non smoking but there were several cigarette ends in the plant pots with ash on the floor. Carpets stained and not vacuumed. Supposed to have English language TV, not so, these channels were not working. Water coming out from back of toilet onto floor. On a Saturday night I was the only person in the Steak Restuarant but the food and service was good. Breakfast restuarant was poor, tables not cleared, not enough staff. Will not be staying here again!!

We started staying at this hotel when it opened 6 or so years ago, and came back twice a year every year since then. As with most Chinese owned hotels they do not believe in upkeep. The rooms have gone from gracious to gastly. Black mold in the bathrooms, dirty carpets that are not vacuumed daily, and big water stained lampshades. All 4 of my business associates had similar issues in their rooms. The hotel also seems to have gotten rid of most of the english speaking staff making communications nearly impossible. What a shame. We'll never stay there again.

I have stayed at this hotel almost every year since it opened. The facilities and property are beautiful and well landscaped. The spa has well trained staff. The pools are stunning.
The breakfast is good, the restaurants are good for chinese food. Language can be a problem. Some staff are much more fluent than others and it can be a challenge to get what you want. However, they are very polite and helpful and usually try their best to serve.
They have big plasma tv's with some english channels. Most of the rooms have beautiful sea views, some including views of the landscaped gardens and pools. The grounds are massive with a grassy full sized football field and other sporting areas. I know that there are bikes for hire to go around the area altough I have never ventured out.
The rooms are starting to feel damp since my last stay. Nothing too noticable but since I have been there several times, I feel the difference. The shower stalls are begining to look slightly worn. The language training for the staff can definitely be improved.
Overall, a good place for families with children to stay- as there is LOTS of space to run around.

Room Tip: Ask for seaview.

I stay for four nights from Sunday to April for a convention organized by the company and my 1st impression about this hotel was 'man! this hotel is in the middle of nowhere". I took a taxi from Baiyun airport and the taxi driver had to ask almost 10 people for directions.
The hotel interior is impressive with nice lobby and good layout. The room is bug with all the basic amenities. The TV channel however is disssppointing with only 4 English channels (CNN, HBO, ESPN,CCTV World) with the price I paid for the room ~RMB680++
The gym and spa is located in a separate building and facilities is top notch except the fact that the lighting at the gym is bad...the light was barely enough at the gym
In all, it was nice experience.

For what is essentially a factory town the hotel facility is brand new and quite amazing. The pool rivals anything you have ever seen in Las Vegas (minus the horrible China smog) and the rooms are all suites with huge sitting rooms, plasma tvs, and amazing bathroom amenities.

The service though does not quite measure up to the facility. There are lots of people to assist you and they try hard but they just don't understand 5 star service standards and most do not speak more than a few words of English. Also the hotel while only a 5 min walk from the ferry is basically in the middle of nowhere so we had to eat every meal at the hotel. While there are five restaurants none of them are great. The Chinese one is probably the best.

Overall great building, great rooms, lots of potential but still not ready for prime time. But for the location its very nice.

I enjoyed my stay at the Nansha Grand Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they even opened the fitness centre early for me. The fitness centre is just a temporary one - the 'proper' one has not been completed yet - but will be impressive once it has been finished.
The swimming pool is huge - I went for a swim one evening and had the whole pool to myself.

This is a brand new hotel - so facilities like fitness center, italian restaurent, japanese restaurent are not operational - the hotel folks say it is most probably 1Q2006. They do have one cafe and a good chinese restaurent. One large outdoor pool and no, the floaties in the pool aren't some upset of the septic system but fallout from nearby power stations.

Notwithstanding that this hotel is about 2 hours from Guangzhou, 45 mins from the closest town, Panyu, it is conveniently located next to the brand new ferry terminal from HK. It is now surrounded by bush and new (almost empty) buildings.

However, the rooms are clean, staff are friendly and try very hard to please (not many speak english).

If you are looking to eat at more than one restaurent, want to have the opportunity to shop, nightlife, you might have to stay somewhere else. But if you wish a clean place to stay, have a quiet rest after work, this place is it.
