I spent one night in the Sheraton Shunde in April on a week business trip through China. The hotel is very modern with a symphony of colors and materials that blend well and create a comfortable, visually interesting atmosphere. As with almost all new hotels in China, marble is used liberally, so do not expect cozy decor.
The rooms are large and very modern with LED touch panels in lieu of switches. Confusing initially, but really nice once you realize what they are. The desk is set up well to work and the room has plenty of storage space. The landline internet is quick and easy with which to get linked. The room décor follows the same patterns as the public spaces with a cacophony marble, fabrics and wood that somehow come together very tastefully. The bathrooms are very modern as well. The shower has a great rain showerhead and good products. In my opinion, the bathroom is a little over-stylized. The sink area, although very trendy, provides very little usable counter space. I do not have a huge need for counter space, but if you do, this could be a challenge. The other odd thing was that the shower temperature did not seem to follow the markings on the showerhead and all changes seemed to lag considerable behind the adjustment. This is a little unnerving as you never knew quite what temperature you were going to get or when it was going to catch up with your adjustment. The bed, as with all new Sheratons is fantastic.
We had dinner at the Chinese restaurant in the hotel and the food and service was excellent. They serve a combination of national and local favorites and all are prepared very well. The service was attentive. In addition, I had breakfast. The buffet is well prepared and pretty extensive. I believe in Asia the Shangri-la's are the gold standard of breakfast buffets and, although not as extensive, this buffet covered all the basis of both western and Chinese options. As well, all the food was fresh and prepared well. The service was excellent.
Overall, my experience at the Sheraton Shunde was very good. The staff is attentive and professional, their English is excellent and, for a new hotel in China, everything ran very well (this is no small achievement)! I would highly recommend this hotel.
