We stayed here for one night on the way to Huangshan Mountain (Yellow Mountain). The Crowne Plaza in Tunxi was an unexpected delight. The lobby is gorgeous and the rooms were extremely nice, on par or better than most 5-star hotels (perhaps a level below the Park Hyatt or Conrad, but for a fraction of the price). I recommend storing your luggage here and just taking a backpack to the mountain if you plan to stay overnight since it is a fairly long and vigorous hike/stair climb (about 1-3 hours, depending on whether you use the tram). Note: the cost of hiring a car to take you to the mountain was not trivial and everything on the mountain is pricey, but worth it. The service at the front desk and concierge was excellent. The was also pricey (I think we were steered toward the most expensive restaurant on the premises). The quality of dinner was better than breakfast, which is a large buffet.

The hotel staff does not speak any English, so unless you speak Mandarin, you won't get anywhere trying to talk to the staff. I got some help from some who seems to work for the hotel in some fashion and spoke some English but it seems that he is not always there . I was charged a deposit of 100 yuen and I was told by the person mentioned above that I was going to get it back at the end of my stay, that was almost three weeks ago and the money has not yet been refunded to my credit card. I major problem (at least for me) is that people are allowed to smoke inside the hotel and this makes it very unpleasant. the room itself was not bad and was cleaned up every day. The breakfast (buffet) available was ok for the 18 yuen charged.
