“Perfect with a capital P”
Conveniently located near the downtown area, this new hotel has a very kind and helpful staff, two good restaurants, bar and subway station right outside. Rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. The price is the best bargain in town. I'll be back.
“An Excellent Hotel”
The reviews do not lie. Located in the financial district, the hotel in not "in the thick of the action". However you really are just 15 paces from a Metro stop, and taxis to get you where you need to go are plentiful. Check in was a breeze. We were upgraded to the executive floor in order to facilitate our request for adjoining rooms. The rooms were a good size, the beds and bedding were outstanding, and the bathrooms (including the toiletries provided) were superior. Having an adjoining room for our kids (aged 4 and 6) made ALL the difference. Caught the Metro 2 stops to the Chunxi shopping district which was fun. Metro really is the way to get around as much as you can. Slept like the dead in our rooms. Breakfast the next morning was great. Plenty of good quality western and Chinese fare, and great coffee! Later in the afternoon, e went down and had a ball in the pool. Its nothing special, but we had the place to ourselves and made the most of it. At every step during our stay, the staff went out of their way to be helpful. From sending an "engineer" straight up to check on our A/C, to the room service people (very quick, served excellent food), to the housekeeping staff (put our daughter's panda on her pillows every day), and the Cafe C people who were great with the kids. We were very well looked after. The Holiday Inn really is a great place to stay in Chengdu. Between the facilities and the service, you really can't go wrong. Thank you!!
Good value and convenient. The room is clean and new but the room service is just ok
“Okay but not special”
My only quibble/gripe about this hotel is the location. The neighborhood is being torn down and there's a lot of construction. One of the side streets has some serviceable local restaurants, but otherwise you're in the heart of the new business district, which is still (as of December, 2012), mostly construction sites. On the upside, there's an entrance to subway line 2 right outside the door so you can be at Renmin Park or Tianfu Square in a few minutes. There's also a canal that runs nearby and you can take walks there. As far as the hotel amenities go: --hotel was freshly renovated and everything sparkled. --the staff was helpful and very friendly --there was a broadband cable in the room but no wireless. It didn't bother me but it might bother some. --the swimming pool is only 16 meters long, so it's substandard, but it was empty everytime I used it so you can sort of do laps or some exercises in it. I didn't use the health club but looked inside and it seemed to have new treadmills and weight machines but it's probably not set up for demanding users. ---the breakfast buffet was not included in my Expedia price--watch out for that--and it costs a stiff 100 yuan a day, which is an extra $15. I ended up buying rolls and stuff like that the night before and eating a light breakfast in my room. Overall it was fine but if you don't need the pool or the location, I'd go to a local hotel like the Tianfu Sunshine, which is 50% cheaper and has equally good rooms.
