"Good hotel to stay to meet with the great pandas."
We booked two rooms for 3 nights, one for me and the other for my parents. This is our first stay at this hotel and the purpose of this trip is Vacation. A warm welcome by the hotel staff at check in, as I said, 'hello', they welcomed me back in my language which is English. They helped us with our luggage and introduced us to the corner suites on the Twentieth floor. To our surprise, a welcomed fruit basket is found in both of our suites.
The entrance hall is huge, filled with pandas everywhere, even inside the rotating doors. There are all sizes, huge, large, medium, and small,. However, there are no live pandas inside the hotel, as they are only 10 minutes away from the, ' Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda breeding' by the complementary shuttle from the hotel which leaves every hour and the return trip is provided upon request.
Buffet breakfast is good, a mixer of westernized Chinese, Japanese, and American, attended all 3 days.
There is also a small gift shop which sell souvenir pandas and candy.
The friendly staff at the check in counter, the helpfulness of the bell people, who help us with our luggage, complementary shuttle service to/from the Chengdu research base, which made our stay in Chengdu a pleasant one, in that I give this hotel a full 5 out of 5.
