I've stayed at this hotel 3 times now, twice in the fall of 2005 and again in May of 2006. I felt the need to write after reading the review of 'momrocks' from California.
Although I travelled by myself for business, I would agree that the glass walls of the bathroom would be unusual if I had to share a room. The bathroom itself was rather 'roomy' and modern. Other than those glass walls, I found the rooms to be quite satisfactory, actually better than I had anticipated. Not once did I ever find these 'adult' items in my room.
The room size compares to most western hotels and I found the beds really comfortable. The rooms had free internet with a dedicated desk/chair as well as a colour TV.
The main hotel restaurant typically had western food every evening (buffet style) and I could find anything from seafood to steak , pasta to pork, and plenty of salads. If you didn't find anything to your liking, there was always a fresh grill available with about 3 food choices...chicken, beef, pork or fish. Place your order and the food would be grilled to your liking on the spot. In addition, there's a Chinese restaurant on the second floor from where you can order from a menu...the Peking Duck was always tasty. I didn't try it but apparently a Japanese restaurant was just opening during my last visit.
There is a lobby bar with a piano player most evenings. I found the staff to be very friendly and eager to please. I found that by trying to use a few Chinese words in the beginning resulted in them trying a few English words (although quite a few of them spoke English fairly well). I will be returning there in a few months and look forward to seeing the staff again.
All of my stays there averaged 2 weeks and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
