The location of the hotel is good. Near the financial district. Rooms are nice and spacious. Was recognised a frequent guest and got upgraded to the club floor. Internet is good compared to the 4G mobile available in china. Booked a smoking room and the smoke alarms went off twice in one night. It was a pain. Staff was very responsive in resolving the problem. English speaking staff is an issue would have expected more fluency in the English speaking staff given the global brand of the hotel.
Lets me begin with the pluses - Excellent staff always smiling, great food, spacious rooms and a clean property. The minuses - internet sucks - during peak hours I got speed of less that 1 mbps with frequent disconnection which the hotel blamed on high number of users, tv reception is unclear and channels are limited and there is nothing in the minibar just 2-3 cans
we went to Guangzhou for a 2 day experience and lide the experience. The service could be better but the overal experience was positive. We lote the breakfast, that offered many options , we recommend the visit !
I had said this was the best hotel in Foshan in 2015. Now it is the worst. Hotel is still nice but service is terrible. I do not recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. I even requested to speak with a manager but results were the same. The last 2 visits to this hotel have confirmed I need to find someplace else in Foshan. If service is not necessary, and you like to argue, this place is for you... enjoy.
Hotel facilities are very good. Staffs able to communicate in many languages. Breakfast have many kind of foods. Inside, also have many restaurants for selection A bit far away from downtown but easy ti find taxi. Subway is away from hotel around 1.2 kms a bit far to walk
After I arrived it turned out that they cannot provide a room with a king size bed. Its okay, it happens. BUT the room I got smelled and was quite dirty. I had to ask housekeeping to swipe my desk because it was full of with stitching spots. The sink was not clean as well. Definitely not what I expect from and Intercontinental. +The air-suction was not working in my bathroom. The breakfast and dinner was good though and the reception/concierge (except 1 quite rude lady) was really helpful. Next time in Foshan I might try another hotel.
Stayed here twice in April multiple nights. Lovely quiet rooms and great bed made for a restful stay. Breakfast and dinner buffets are outstanding. Ala carte orders much more average. Staff was helpful. Hotel is close to parks with great walking.
The hotel remains a very good option if you are visiting for the Canton Fair or have business around the area. A direct air conditioned bus service at the nearby Mall direct to the airport resolves the transportation issue for a mere 30 RMB and get you there in just over an hour, which is great considering the distance and the overall traffic around the super busy Guangzhou area. The hotel offers complimentary shuttle to and from the Canton Fair which is probably around twenty minutes away depending upon traffic. The hotel is nice but it definitely has seen its better days. Lack of smoke free floors is a downer. I stayed on the 26th Floor in a no-smoking room, but the stench of tobacco could be felt inside. The butt-station (ash-trays) near the lifts says it all. The hotel management must look into this aspect. The room carpets, bed mattress and old, beat up electric kettle were a bit downer. The marble in the shower is damaged and the broken piece repeatedly placed back by the staff after each cleanup, which left a bad taste considering the brand level and standards. I had an impression that periodic make-over is due. Was pleasently surprised to notice Facebook working in this hotel, which was either just a fluke or something to do with the close proximity to Hong Kong. Never noticed in any other hotel in the Guangzhou area during several visits. The breakfast is is nice and meets expectations. The fitness centre and pool are quite nice. The overall experience was good and I would go back if I happen to be in the area again. Book early to get a better deal.
Just entering this hotel the smell is amazing...my room on floor 38 was just needed luxury...bed bathroom perfect...very tired once I ordered food to my room and discover that it's was so delicious and not over priced....what was very expensive and I never try it was their Spa...wich they do something about it...stuff very friendly and a lot of them speak English...
We stayed her for 3 night in march 2017 and the hotel was very clean and well presented. Being my first trip into greater china I felt the hotel lacked a few of the finer touches and was a little difficult to communicate particular in room needs. I am sure it caters well for Asian guests. For the most part I would have given 5 stars save for the buffet breakfast preferences many VERY Asian dishes leaving the western options much to be desired and I don't think it agreed with me and few English speaking staff. I would probably stay here again as it's among the best in the area. The wheelchair accessible rooms were well equipped and well designed.
