Good Walking Hotel
Posted May 22, 2015
The Sheraton is in the heart of Chengdu and central to a number of tourist sights such as temples, a monastery, the main shopping district, Wide and Narrow Alley, Mao and museums, all within a 15 minute walk. Bank of China is north ten or fifteen minutes, convenient for changing USD. Fruit stands and noodle joints are everywhere. BTW taxis are very inexpensive. Most everyone seems happy and friendly, not only staff but the man on the street as well. Careful, though, streets run north-south right around the hotel but soon go at a 45 degree angle, which can get tricky; if your a walker bring a cheap compass and grab a map.
