We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2011. We booked a room with access to the executive lounge which we made good use of during our stay for the wifi access. It would have been nice to have wifi available in-room, wired internet is available but like many other tablet-owners, I don't travel with a laptop anymore. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very friendly. Their English-speaking ability ranges from poor to quite fluent. Of course, my Chinese-speaking ability is non-existent. But even the staff who didn't speak English well weren't shy about trying to communicate with us. On our first day we were approached by Mr. Zeng, the food and beverage manager, who introduced himself and made us feel very welcome. Whenever we saw him throughout our stay he made a point of coming over and asking how things were going and if there was anything he could do. He was very friendly and professional and a good part of the reason we enjoyed our stay so much.
Very comfortable room and bed - no issues with noise during our stay except that I'll agree with a previous reviewer - the city is very noisy with horns and sirens going at all hours. We were on a high floor and could still hear them but it didn't disturb our sleep. We ate breakfast in the executive lounge the first day, but they weren't very busy so they didn't have the usual buffet you'd expect and breakfast was ordered from the kitchen and delivered up to the lounge. The other two mornings we ate in the 2nd floor restaurant and had a much better breakfast. We also had a lovely meal in the Tiara restaurant one night.
We hadn't planned to spend more than one night in Guiyang, but had a change in plans while on an organized tour. We used the Sheraton's business centre to book flights to Xi'an and Shenzhen for the rest of our trip. That was accomplished successfully and without much fuss. We spent an enjoyable couple of days wandering around the city which was very interesting. There's a huge park in the northwest of the city (Qianling Park) and a very-well restored Buddhist monastery (Hongfu Temple.) We had a terrific meal at a little restaurant adjacent to the monastery.
All-in-all, we had an excellent experience in the city and I recommend the Sheraton to anyone looking for a little Western-leaning oasis in Guiyang.
