“Grandiose lobby”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

This, I believe, is a new hotel, built maybe two years ago according to the cab driver. Once you enter, you are welcomed by a huge lobby, well decorated. You could tell it's new by the state-of-the-art fitness room. The swimming pool is nice, although they insist you to wear a swimming cap. The location is great, within walking distance to the shopping district (Nanjing Road). Room is spacious with excellent shower and air conditioning worked great. Service is top notch. You can't go wrong with this choice.

Just a word: excellent. Free wifi in the common areas, located near to the metro (very useful), good breakfast, excellent rooms, very friendly staff, the room was big, clean and comfortable (with a very cool see-thru shower.) The breakfast buffet was extensive (Western and Chinese options available). Recommended.

After traveling around China for 11 days and staying in hotels with varying levels of comfort, it was such a joy to come to the Courtyard by Marriott. They have real air conditioning! While it was interesting seeing more local hotels, I was finally able to relax here. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were big, clean and comfortable (with a very cool see-thru shower.) The breakfast buffet (included in my package) was extensive (Western and Chinese options available). There is free Wifi availabile in the lobby (or in your room if you are a Marriott rewards member). The lobby is very comfortable with lots of seating. The hotel is only 5 minute walk to the subway. So happy that I got to finish my trip here. My only complaint was that I had to pay to use the internet to print my boarding pass. Usually that service is free. However I give the Courtyard by Marriott a big thumbs up!

The room is nice and clean, and if you live in upper floors, the city view is actually very good. It's much better than the Courtyard in US.
However, the location is not really good. It's said it is very close to everywhere in the city center. but it is actually close to nowhere. It's between two subway stations, so no matter which station you choose, you need to walk very long. Within 1 miles, there is no large convenient stores, no fast food, no good restaurants. It's like a very beautiful and awesome oasis in a desert.
It's a nice choice for business trip, if you just want to stay and haul a taxi to somewhere else. It's not ideal for tourists.

After experiencing a bit of a mixed bag in other 4 and 5 star hotels around China - this was the first to fully meet expectations.

Friendly staff available at all times.

Room was spectacular - Super King, Desk, 42in TV, and a show-piece shower . internal glass walls mean that you could see from the toilet to the outside window (a fair distance in these vary large rooms) - but don't fear, there is an electrical operated blind available if you want to separate the bathroom from the rest of the room. The sheets are luxurious like a 1000 percale and the bed super comfortable

Breakfast offered a good choice of Chinese, Japanese and Western Style and was by far the best we had in China.

Also the best bar by far of all the Hotels I stayed in, in China - quick service and well made drinks. the pricing was a little odd as a double spirit with a mixer would set you back 120 Yuan (£12) but a cocktail like a Long Island Iced Tea (which contains 4 difference spirits), was just 60 Yuan (£6). I had my entire party drinking the the Long Island Ice Tea before long - thoroughly recommend.

And the one very minor down side. Just before midnight they call 'Last Orders' - You can't get a drink in the bar after midnight!

Place is clean, nice and modern, and it is extremely convenient to get to town. Free wifi in the room if you have Marriott card and if you don't just apply online before you leave , its free to join anyway in order to avail free wifi in your room. Wine is very expensive in the lobby restaurant. Food is just average.
