Stayed at the Wyndham for two nights at the start and end of my tour of China last year. This is a fairly new hotel as it was opened this decade. As far as all of the hotels I stayed in China, this visually was the nicest of them all. The rooms are large with high ceilings and the bathroom is massive. You have a choice of using the shower or the bathtub which has a TV screen to the side!
Though on paper this should have been the one that I had the best stay at, it wasn't. There isn't any in-room wi-fi, though there is in the lobby downstairs. The TV channel selection was a bit lacking. A lot of government channels mostly. And I never could find the right temperature for the room which led to restless nights here. Though to be fair, I was coming on the tail end of long journies both times. One from a long flight from the US and one from a long day in China.
I did also try the breakfast buffet which was surprisingly disappointing. As we were with a tour group, lines were long for anything that needed to be ordered. Hence, I stuck to the items you can help yourself to which I found to be average. Given the Wyndham's brand prestige, I would have hoped the buffet would have been better.
As for the title of the review, the Wyndham truly is the nicest building on the block as it is located in a residential area where you can find locals hanging about. The sights and sounds that I encountered by walking a just block away from here gave me a feeling of awe. Saw a few things that I would not typically see living in the US.
Overall, I thought the Wyndham was good, but not great. It is a very nice hotel visually, but I don't think it is up to par with the Wyndham name.
