Basic needs hotel-location greatPosted May 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Gloria Plaza Hotel was clean, neat, convenient to public transportation. Laundry services were available BUT very expensive. Over $110 for less than 20 items.. There was no items dry cleaned. Room had Air Conditioning but was not turned on due to Chinese Government Policy. the outside temperature threshold was not achieved. Room was stuffy.

Excellent hotel in great location.Posted May 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Staff was very helpful, and there was always someone that spoke good English. The breakfast in hotel was good and changed from day to day. It is an easy walk to Master of Nets Garden (1 km) and a moderate walk to Humble Administrators Garden (1.6 km), Suzhou Museum and Lion Grove Garden. There are many good restaurants around the hotel. Pingjiang Road is right across the street. The only negative (not hotel's fault) is the difficulty of getting a taxi outside the hotel during busy times.

GREAT LOCATIONPosted Dec 14, 2012 on Hotels.com
I would certainly recommend the Gloria Plaza. Right across the road is the narrow lane way with the canal...and if you walk along this narrow stone roadway, you will have a canal with all the atmosphere of an Asian Venice for your enjoyment. Do be aware of the electric motor bikes that have the tendency to creep up right behind you without any prior notice. The Gloria Plaza is an older hotel, probably built in the fifties. The rooms are large, and somewhat devoid of excessive furniture, hence there is plenty of space. Hot water abounds, good amenities. Water does go down the drain, and everything is clean. Carpets are not new, however it is regularly cleaned. Room service is great; the included breakfast is also great, with a wide range of foods. I would certainly recommend this hotel for its price (if booked through Hotel club)...for its proximity to the HUMBLE ADMINISTRATORS GARDEN and the canal street mentioned above, as well as to the Mall area to the west of the canal street.

Good value and well situated.Posted Nov 3, 2011
Location: Depends on the person's reason for visiting Suzhou. For a tourist this position was most suitable. If there on business, perhaps other places may be better situated.
The Gloria Plaza Hotel in Suzhou is a great place. Our room was clean, quiet, spacious and very reasonably priced. The staff were extremely helpful and the buffet breakfeasts and other meals served at the hotel very good. The hotel was well situated just across teh road to one of the main walkways through the old city. This area is picturesque, full of great little shops and restaurants and at teh far end led on to teh new I M Pei designed Suzhou Museum. I would certainly go back there.
