We had difficulty finding the place when we arrived as the driver of our cab was not a native. It has a very good location, eateries and shopping area were only minutes of walk away. We travelled mostly by cab to the places of interest. Suzhou Museum, Lion Clove and Pingjiang Street are nearby and reachable by walking.

Conveniently located Hotel near the Science Park in Suzhou. Plenty of places to eat, shop, and close to the Subway station. Very nice room for a longer stay (my room had living room, kitchen and separate bedroom). Decent staff (but for China was def above average). My only complaints was I couldn't buy breakfast tickets directly from the hotel and had to pay cash each morning (for whatever reason Expedia doesn't offer a room with Breakfast included but I seemed to be the only person in the hotel that didn't have a breakfast ticket). The coffee was often lukewarm (burner don't put out any head and the waitress would just dump a new pot into the old, cold one). Also my heater didn't work for about 11 out of my 14 day stay or it would turn on and off all the time. Finally I banged the thermostat and it never had a problem again. I think the batteries were probably loose inside there. Also they have an excellent laundry service. Excellent hotel for a longer business stay.

Hotel is great if you are seeking space, quietness and a resort like feeling. Staff were helpful in writing translations for direction as there is very limited English in this town.
Beds were soft and comfortable. A real plus! I would come back here if ever in China again.
Coffee shops are in walking distance.
Pretty nice hotel. Would probably be a 3.5 - 4 star in the US. Not a 5 star. Main complaints: 1) the bathtub water supply shot out little shards of metal; not 'rust colored' water, and not a small amount - filling the tub halfway resulted in a thin layer shiny metal filings. 2) It took me multiple visits to the front desk and probably an hour total of discussion for the hotel to understand that I had booked my room through Expedia. They would act like they understood but then hand me a bill for the total cost. I finally spoke with a manager and she was extremely helpful, solved the problem right away. 3) I realize it is normal to not be able to drink tap water in China but a hotel claiming to be 5 star should either provide a filter or more complimentary water bottles. Particularly given the 'metal filings' issue mentioned above. It is not a convenient hotel to get to and it isn't close to most tourist destinations so prepare to pay for taxis (which are actually quite affordable). Otherwise the hotel was very nice. I think it was well worth the cost in US dollars.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again,staff and service were very good.The room was clean although the carpet needed a shampoo as a few stains.Only other thing was the shower door wouldn't close properly and the grouting around the bottom of the shower needs renewing otherwise a very comfortable stay.

The hotel was just okay. The floor of my room had a strange smell. I was upgraded to club room status but that experience wasn't great. They insisted on helping me, but they never got my order correct. Then during breakfast I found all the hot food cold. Somehow all the heating plates were not turned on. They need to better train their staff.
