This was my first trip to this part of China so I wasn't sure where to stay. I booked this hotel as a Crowne Plaza is always a safe bet.
Hotel was wonderful, big, grand and brand new. The location of the hotel isn't ideal, I asked the staff if there was a shop nearby and was told it's a taxi ride to the nearest shop! And they haven't' got a shop onsite so that was a bit awkward - especially as I left for this trip in a rush and forgot lots of things.
There is also a lot of building work going on in the area so I was routinely woken up at 6am every morning by banging and drilling. I think the Crowne Plaza is the first Western Hotel in the area top open as everything is still being developed.
So in short, great hotel but bad location.
