After arriving from Shanghai via a bullet train to Hangzhou station, the taxi area had a long queue and there was a massive jam on a Friday night on the streets of Hangzhou. Our taxi driver did not recognize the english name of Wyndham (printed on expedia). I would suggest foreign travelers quote the road name to the taxi driver instead.
Once we arrived in the hotel lobby, we were greeted with a warm welcome. The bell boy helped to lift our luggage and aided us in our check into the room. The bell boy was friendly and attentive, and gave us tips and suggestions on places to visit in Hangzhou.
We viewed the Club Lakeview room on the 8th floor and the normal Deluxe Room on the fifth floor, and we feel that the normal Deluxe Room was much more value for money (500 RM cheaper). The room sizes are about the same. The lake view room only had a partial view of the lake facing a cross junction, with car hornings going off every second.
We walked to the lake, and along the way, there was numerous of cafes. We lazed a little at Starbucks and had a night lake view experience with the hustle and bustle of mainland tourists and the young upbeat energy of local hangzhou youngsters surfing on their phones. It was a great experience, walking around the lake. Overall, Hangzhou is a tourist friendly place and we feel safe walking at night, with the warmth and acceptance of this scenic area.
