I stayed three times in April & May, for Phase 1, 2, & 3 of Canton Fair and had three different rooms - one a suite at no additonal cost due to a pleasant mix up.
The rooms, although not 4 star quality, were better than most 3 star hotels. They were more than adequate: large, clean, quiet, and did not have any residual tobacco odor found in many hotels in China.
The reception staff and bellboys were the real highlight: friendly and helpful and really went out of their way to assist in any way they could.
The included breakfast was basic, with good choices; but if I had one complaint it would be their coffee - undrinkable to me; but I must admit I am very fussy about my coffee.
Like most hotels in Guangzhou its prices double during the Fair, but at just under a $150/night average it gave me my best value compared to four other places i have stayed at.
As a side note it's location is great - subway just yards away; good, to excellent, restaurants close by, a river walk about 5 blocks away, and and a good sized shopping mall about 2-3 blocks away.
Bottom line is if I was bringing the owner of our company I would put him in the Westin or White Swan, but if on my own I would stay at the Skyline.
