Great accommodation with ample rooms and great service. Big buffet for western breakfast and private rooms for a business meeting enjoying great Asian food and excellent wines. It has fitness room and nice 2nd floor pool table bar with area for cigar fans.
I have just been here on September. Hospitable and enthusiastic staff made such a good impression on me. They were eager to answer all of my question and wiliing to support the customer. I has satisfied with the room- tidy and clean, wide space for two person. Sheraton's breakfirst quality is quite good, you will have a lot of choice for your breakfirst. Finally the next time going on business on Changzhou I will stay in Sheraton.
as a pre-registered participant of an event I expected to get my room key immediately on arrival. However I was told to "sit down and wait". since I am not a waiter I did not accept to wait and "suddenly" I got my key-card. At my room the first unpleasant surprise was the insufficient illumination. The corridors too had just a "war-time emercency" lighting. Then I realized that the mini-bar was locked, third was that there was only ONE electrical socket near the desk. As a business treaveller I need at least two or three sockets.. The (central) airconditioning also had problems to cool the room below 25 °C. The breakfast buffet offered a lot of variety but it was not replenished after 10am. At 10:25am the guest were informed that the buffet will close in 5 minutes, which was done precisely. At least on weekends I expect a bit more flexibility about timings. Luckily I did not pay for my stay, otherwise my rating would have been worse. The personnel is friendly but stubborn and unflexible, probably "communist residue".
The Hotel is for SPG standards ok. It has only 8 levels, which makes life easier. The rooms are big and comfortable. The receptionists are kind and helpful. The fitness center is not big, but has everything you need to make some sports. The breakfast in the Club Lounge was ok and nicely quite. Outside the Hotel you have a lot of green trees. But it makes it difficult to move without taxi. So a fast shopping around the corner will be difficult. For fans of a walk in the park it is the perfect spot.
Frequent China travellers are familiar with the admonition that while all the hardware in China looks great, the software needed to run it (usually the systems, habits, and people) still require a lot of work. In the last couple of years, the gap between the stunning world class hardware and poor third world software has closed. For major cities like Shenzhen, Shanghai, and Beijing, that gap is no worse than it would be in, say, Chicago or Amsterdam. Unfortunately, third and fourth line cities like Changzhou still have a long way to go. Set out of the old city center, the hotel is beautifully constructed in a new municipal district. Only a few years old, it has the quirks one expects to see in rural China---as people who have never been abroad attempt to channel the needs of their non-Chinese guests. There is the usual Chingrish. The convenience shop is located, for example, in what can only be described as a Christmas elf hut complete with white fencing and a fairy tale cottage door. There are large areas of the hotel that may or may not be open. And the selection of stores is...eclectic. The rooms are roomy and most come with balconies. But the shower doors leak. And the temperature controls in the rooms don't work. They only pump out heat and I had to sleep with the balcony door open. And, as with similar hotels, the furniture is sub-optimal---looking good, but not particularly comfortable. The breakfast is plentiful, if unsophisticated. The coffee is awful even though it comes out of an automated coffee machine. And don't count on anyone speaking fluent english. But it's inexpensive and well located. Give it a few years. They are trying to get better. In a few years, who knows?
A nice hotel, room clean and comfortable, shower hot, burger good, nice staff, good breakfast but the internet was terrible. Not sure if it was because of China but a real bummer. Need for business. Would provide a second try as it has happened often in China and I used to live here. The price was very good. Be careful if wanting a Non Smoking room...In China others look the other way about the smoking and that includes some who smoke in non Smoking rooms.
This 5* Hotel deserves every one of them! Not expensive at all for western standard - 70$ p/n Very clean large rooms with bathtub and separate shower, free WiFi, complimentary Coffee and thee in the room. The bath towels are disappointingly small and washed out. Otherwise the place is great! Nice indoor pool open 7am-10pm great gym open 24h. I will most defiantly go back on my next visit. The car service is very expensive... order from another place.
I was upgraded to a King Suite which was absolutely superb Featured Bedroom, lounge and bathroom, each were as big as a normal hotel room. Bed was extremely comfortable and quality of fittings and cleanliness was superb. With the varied amount of nationalities visiting Changzhou for business it was expected that not all staff could speak English well, but I had no issues communicating. If a staff member could not speak English, or did not understand "Aussie English" they would get someone quickly to help. The breakfast buffet is large, as it has to cover a variety of nationalities who visit. I would visit again.
My parents normally stay at the Holiday Inn but I pushed for staying at the Sheraton because I wanted Starpoints. I found it pretty irritating that the included breakfast rate on SPGs website was so vastly more than the non breakfast rate + 2 a la carte breakfast. Meanwhile the rate at Ctrip was about half as much. I tried price matching with SPG and got really obtuse explanation but was worried that I wasn't going to get points via the OTA. Not really an easy experience dealing with that. In the end just doing the base rate and a la carte breakfast for one of the two nights. Breakfast was good but not special by Chinese standards. There really isn't much in walking distance. Didn't really interact with staff that much. Only at check in and check out, and the interactions were conducted in Chinese. I got the impression that the staff was competent. I was offered a plate of fruit as a welcome amenity for being SPG Gold as well a room on the preferred floor. As far I can tell the dark paneling of this floor is identical to the Club level floor. The lower floors are a lighter wood paneling. Internet was solidly fast. Pool was meh. Also of note, Chinese for Sheraton and Hilton sound quite very similar.
Rooms are clean and spacious. Service especially in the hotels restaurants was horrible! The staff needs to speak better English so they can at least take a drink order! Overall staff etiquette is outdated and rude to say the least. Every time visiting the dining area I was disappointed and even at times totally and blatantly disrespected. I will not be coming back or suggesting this hotel for any further returns to this area. Too bad.
