Magnificent hotel, in every way. I stay 150 nights a year in hotels, mostly 5 star. This hotel deserves at least 6 stars. I cannot fault the room, food, staff, exec lounge, health centre, spa....and most importantly, the staff.
This was my second stay in the last 14 months. I decided to return because of its great location and great value and no less its great legacy. I first stayed at this hotel in 1996 on business. It was already a popular and reliable hotel for foreign business personnel. Although it's old, it's very well maintained. I hope it would not be replaced by a skyscraper given it's standing at such a prominent spot in this fast developing economy.
Staff are very polite, accommodating and polite.
We arrived very early at around 8.30am and the staff tried to arrange for early check in at 10.00am despite official check in is 2pm. During the process, they are also very apologetic to us as they are not able to get rooms earlier for us.
Generally, a good hotel. if you are OK to live on floor 76, not afraid of height, and ok to transfer lifts to get on higher floor. this is a very nice hotel.
Lift: due to all rooms are above 64 floors. this is something I don't like about this hotel, you have to change lifts to get on to the right floor. while changing, you will have to walk to the other side of the building. which makes you do not want to come down or get up again if you forgot something in the room or want to go out.
Gym & Swimming pool: Superb Swimming pool and GYM area. very very nice experiences if in the morning with sunshine! sunshine covers all Gym and swimming pool. possibly the highest GYM & Swimming pool in China.
nice to try once, but personally I feel that the hotel is too high in the air, not feeling very safe if you are afraid of height.
