This is a nice hotel but little outside the city center. Some of the staff was very nice including Watson at concierge, James at reception, and Sunny at the Lobby lounge. I took the subway to experience the local life and it is only 5 minute walking from the hotel. I had a riverside room with a nice view so no complaints. Initially there was a little noise but the hotel staff worked hard to fix it and they did.
Great hotel that has direct access to canton fair.
Rooms are very spacious & clean.
Only negatives are no free wifi & no breakfast with room rate.
Food at hotel is expensive for China eg $12 for a coffee & the quality of food is okay but not good for the price.

Amenities come with the price, but were good. Good buffet breakfast with good choice.
Front desk doesn't have a proper Q system and if we wait behind the line, someone else walks through and goes behind the person being served. Front desk persons although very professional and pleasant are hesitant to serve non-Chinese customers and avoid facial contact to summon us even if all 4 counter staff are free. Perhaps its a comfort lever in language issue.
All the bell boys, cleaning crew and other staff are extremely courteous and greeting everyone all the time.
OVERALL a good hotel.

"Convenient location but hotel needs improvement "
1)The hotel is located directly next to a metro station
2) There is a 7/11, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and Subway right next to the hotel which is good for western people who cannot read or understand Chinese menus.
3) The staff were polite and helpful. They were able to order me a taxi back to the airport at 5;45am ( although the fair cost me 100rmb more than I would usually pay )
4) It has a pool and gym (though it's a maze trying to find it and get to it. It made me feel like I was in a staff only area)
5) Strong wifi connection in the room and the lobby.
1) There are no ceiling lights in the room. You have to rely on three lamps at night which makes it almost impossible to see anything after 6:30pm
2) The bed is rock hard and not so comfortable
3) You did not need to swip your card in the elevator to reach your floor. No security
4) Shower and toilet leaked.
5) Buffet breakfast was average
Overall the hotel does the job, it just needs to renovate and update the rooms and also needs proper lighting! I stayed on the Executive Floor so I think there would be rooms much worse than mine as I paid extra for mine. I travel to GZ for work in the fashion/textile industry so I stay here purely for location near the metro. I have stayed at Vertical City Hotel across the road and the rooms are nicer, moremodern and more spacious however I think Rosedale is more of a hotel and staff/service are better. Vertical city is more of a "serviced apartment" and more expensive.
I stayed at this hotel in 6 nights. The hotel is clean. Nice view. I can see the Canton tower from my room ( so great). Staff is nice. I did not enjoy much foods here but the food is also delicious.
Staff also help us find more information about local restaurant, help us carry our things to take taxi...etc...
I had a problem with my phone. I forgot my phone on the taxi. Staff tried their best to help me find it. That is my lucky. Once again, thank you very much for support from staffs.
I will introduce my friends to this hotel. This is my choice when I come to Guangzhou again.
Me and my friends like this hotel because is only 20 minutes away from the canton fair that's if you attempt to the furniture show, also if you like to shop is a nice market 15 minutes away ,also they have a free bus to take you to canton fair.
South of the Pearl River, the Haizhu district was formerly known as an industrial area, but is now home to some of the most luxurious residential real estate in the city. A campus of Sun-Yat Sen is located in this district. The Huangzhou Wholesale Market offers some of the best bargain shopping in the city for locals and tourists alike.
