Its that good for a reason, everything is beautiful, the exterior, interior, rooms. Nothing left to spare, make sure you get a room done up in the "old" style.
Bed was a little creaky, I think thats just because it was that old and authentic.
The food was excellent, located right on the river, at night the building looks spectacular.
The Museum is interesting as well, having the oldest elevator in China.
