I've been fortunate to have enjoyed staying at a number of Crowne Plaza hotels in various parts of the world but the one in Lijiang Ancient City has to be one of the better Crowne Plazas I have spent any time at when it comes to location and comfort. The restaurants are very good, especially the Basil Leaf- what great Thai food they served up! Unfortunately, while good in the restaurants, the level of service in the hotel was inconsistent. I needed to check in & out twice over a period of three days and maybe I was just unlucky, but each time I checked out I seemed to get the bewildered-looking, unsupervised trainee. A checkout that takes 15 minutes is a bit more than I would have expected and I was presented with the credit card slip to sign before being shown the hotel bill, all at a prime checkout time. The rooms were great. Large, with an open plan room and bathroom setup- with all the things you would want, whether staying for business or pleasure: iron / ironing board, mini bar, TV with English channels, dressing gowns, etc. The Internet connection during my stay was really good, and you can connect more than one device at a time viz: laptop, iPhone, iPad. Location is also good. There is a convenient 'back door' entrance from the hotel into the Ancient City which, besides the expected touristy shops, has some local Chinese restaurants really worth trying out. All in all, I would recommend this hotel in what is one of the more beautiful cities I've seen in China.
