the hotel is nice, things are expensive there. food, wifi, etc
I prefer an area that is closer to something to due in the evening. there isnt a whole lot to do here except go one of the 3 theme parks.
i wouldnt stay here again, just because I like to get around and walk and check out places to eat and have a place to get drinks in the evening.
Also the mall attached is quite expensive.

Welcome to the new Westin Shenzhen Nanshan. The moment you arrive, the scent of white tea candles and atmospheric lighting …More
I stayed in this hotel for 7 days and my stay was very good. However the rooms do not have the microwave and hence becomes very difficult for vegetarian like me. However the hotel people allowed me to use the restaurant for heating my food packets, very nice of them!
The rooms were very good and clean. However the carpets were not up to the mark and one does not feel that they are very clean.
From Shenzhen Airport to Hotel, take either BUS or CAB.
By BUS - navigate from within airport building to Car Park 3 (if I remember correctly). You will see a signboard that states all the buses and stops to whichever location. If you read Chinese, look out for 'Shekoumatou' with a metro sign. Buses are from 2 Yuan and above- only exact change (coins) are accepted and bus tickets are paid on board the bus.
By CAB - beware of those who will hustle. Take the RED cabs and run by the meter (in Chinese, it's called 'dabiao').
If you are staying for just a night or two, and intend to head off to HK/Macau by ferry next, this is quite ideal because of the location. It's a no frills hotel, so expect no pool or hearty breakfast or exceptional service, laundry, etc. If you want just a comfortable stay with quite a good view to buildings and mountain beyond, it is actually livable.
Amenities/ attractions nearby:
Bakery - out of the hotel, turn right and right again, and walk all the way down - parallel to a playing field/ ground. Nice bread, interior and garden.
Sea World - probably one of the highlights near the area where I would recommend to go. It's not crowded when I was there, and not fully opened - restaurants and all, as the area will be developed for some light and art festival 2015. But still worth a visit- there's 7-11, a cruiseliner, some nice urban furniture, eateries.There's also a Sea World Metro, 2nd from Shekou Matou Metro (end station at Ferry Terminal).
