This is a relatively new hotel that is situated on Dalong Lake. It is not very close to anything, it is positioned as more of a vacation hotel than a business hotel. However, if you have transportation, it is a delightful place to stay.
The room I was in had a very nice balcony which would have made a nice place to relax if it wasn't raining at the time. The room had full amenities including an iron and ironing board which you don't see in many Chinese hotels.
The room had ample electrical outlets and a patch board for hooking up most anything you have (iPod, computer, etc) to the TV.
The shower was quite large and very nicely equipped with both a rain head (above you) and a portable multi-spray shower head.
The room had a large closet, supplied with a bathrobe and safe, and the closet had a movement detection light in it, so that as you went into the closet the light turned itself on; a nice touch.
There was a well equipped gym and a nice pool as well.
Breakfast was very good with many choices. The staff was friendly and spoke some English, enough to help out someone with no knowledge of Mandarin.
All in all this was an excellent choice, reasonably priced and modern and efficient. The lobby was nicely appointed as well. If you are familiar with Crowne Plaza's, this one would rate at the top of the list. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is the location. However, if you are going ob vacation, the lakeview site would be very nice. For business, it was a bit out of the way.
