I go to Hangzhou for business at least once a month and whenever I am in Hangzhou, I either stay at the Best Western or the Hyatt. My advice? Splurge a little and stay at the Hyatt if you are looking to experience Hangzhou as a tourist.
This entire hotel is dated with poor staff training, I am a Mandarin speaker and still find it hard to communicate with them and get things done. It regularly takes 3-4 front office staff 10-15 minutes to check me into my room. I will say however, that the ladies at the Business Centre have always been professional and very helpful; they will be happy to purchase train tickets for you if you are looking to make a trip to/from Shanghai or other cities.
The rooms are spacious but old, there is no guarantee that the air conditioner will work in summer, and no guarantee that the heater will work in the winter. The restaurant serves a wide range and variety of breakfast and dinner buffet foods but everything is mediocre. The hotel's location is inconvenient and far away from most tourist hotspots.
There are many hotels located on the West Lake that are, although pricier, a better value for money and you will have a MUCH better stay in Hangzhou. Be sure to go to Xihu Chuntian for lunch or dinner (101-102 Nanshan Lu).
