This is an excellent hotel for leisure and business travel, the hotel has great conference facilities and the team are well trained and fluent in english. The hotel has great F&B facilities as well as a Starbucks in the hotel complex, the hotel is also next door to a museum where you can see the famous jade suit. Overall a pleasure to stay at this hotel
Not even close to any Marriot standard. We've stayed at various Marriots in different countries and this hotel is in the bottom 2. Not the best value for your $$$. CONS : 1. We arrived 45 mins early to check-in time. Rooms were not ready. This should not be held against the hotel but a bit unusal that we had to wait until the check in time for the Hotel to get the room ready. Went back after 45 minutes of waiting and the room was still not ready. At the end, we were able to check in after the check-in time. 2. Linens, carpet and furnitures are very outdated. Feb in GZ is not very humid but the carpet felt a bit muggy for some reason. Slippers are provided by the hotel. 3. We've requested extra towels when we skipped housekeeping. Hotel said NO as each guests are allowed only one bath towel and one hand towel. We've dried and re-used our towel during our stay here. 4. Bath tub and shower has some serious musty mildew smell. 5. Toilet does not have enough water pressure. We had to investigate a bit to find the optimal flushing technique! :) 6. We've tested complimentary water bottle provided by the hotel. DO NOT DRINK THIS WATER. The level was ~290ppm which is not suitable for drinking. Tap water in the bathroom tested at 150ppm which is definitely cleaner than the bottled water. PROS: 1. If you are coming from Hong Kong by bus, this Hotel is the bus stop for the CTS express coach. This is the main reason why we chose this hotel and it is super convenient if you are traveling to/from Hong Kong. 2. Starbucks - on premise with very friendly staffs that speak English. 3. Location is central.
I stayed at this hotel for a week in Jan-Feb 2017 and this is my second stay at this hotel and I am so glad that I came back. The hotel has been here for a while but the rooms are spotless clean, the beds are comfortable, and very quiet despite all the happenings around the hotel. The staff is very attentive and friendly. I stayed at an Executive Suite and for the additional price, it is well worth it. You get to enjoy the use of the Executive Lounge which offers free breakfast and cocktail hours with a full dinner. Wow, what a great value it is. The breakfast offers both western style and Chinese style items and are outstanding. Compared to the other two Marriott hotels in Guangzhou, I will say that China Hotel offers a great price and exceptional value. A subway station is just right outside of the hotel main entrance. If you want to experience the normal lives of the local citizens, there is no better way to buy a one-day pass (20 yuan or roughly US$3) and ride around to different interesting places. I went to several malls and city parks by using the subway and it was quite an enjoyable experience.
Book 2 rooms and arrived at the hotel at about 7 p.m. Imagine my surprise when the reception inform me that only 1 room is available and the other room have to wait for some air crew to checked out. Beside me was a couple complaining that they arrived at 2 p.m. and still not able to be assign a room. The executive club room on the looks acceptable, but then you start to find signs that this is really an old hotel... Where do I begin...firstly, the partition door separating the bathroom and the bedroom was almost impossible to slide open or shut. The same goes for the wardrobe door which seems to be stuck. Wifi which is normally very important to modern traveller is not cry stable. A cluster of 6 flat pillows on the king bed does not provide sufficient comfort and no pillow menu was available for a hotel classified as 5 stars. "Do not disturb" is only available as a tag to be put on the door handle. Normally I would sacrifice the bigger varieties of food at the common breakfast restaurant for the peace and tranquility of the club lounge. For the first time in all my stays, I was shocked that the club lounge was equally crowded and the eggs station require 40 minutes before you can get a couple of easy over fried eggs. Food are limited, cold and often not refill in times. Perhaps its was because i check in on the 2 day of CNY and the hotel was overbook by tour group and because of poor management, room was upgraded to normal guest thus you see many level of guest that normally will not be seen at the club lounge. Price is relatively cheap for a stay in a mar riot hotel but if quality and comfort is more important to you than saving a few bucks, I would not recommend this hotel to you. For me personally, this will be my first and last stay there.
This is a very different Marriott in China. It seems like it is a real Chinese Hotel. The bed was quite comfortable, the rooms were a little outdated. Breakfast was OK but very crowded and loud. Chinese buffet war you know :-)
I am staying at the China hotel in Guangzhou or Canton tonight. The lobby is huge and the rooms are very nice. Modern, yet with an authentic Chinese feel with regards to the decor. Bathrooms have shower gel, shampoo etc. Good selection. An executive level on the 20 floor boasts a well stocked lounge. There is food 3 times a day if you have access to it. Staff speaks limited English, but the front desk staff were quite fluent. There are shops, 7 Elevens and massage parlours close by (careful..Chinese massages are brutal). Shopping for the usual Chinese goods isn't far off either; but bargain people.. BARGAIN!!! Be careful with ATMs here.. they may dispense fake notes. Use the one inside the hotel..safe to an extent. All in all... a nice place to stay.
We stayed in a two bedroom suite up on the executive level. It was wonderful to have drinks and a very decent selection of food in the executive club! Oleg the Russian waiter was awesome! We saw him daily in the morning and he was always cheerful and helpful! He's a gem! Breakfast selection was very varied with lots of choices! The suite had a good amount of space and was clean and well furnished. We were there for about a week and felt well cared for the entire time. The hotel even sent a birthday cake up for my son (newly adopted, age 2).
I stayed for one week at China Marriott Hotel in Guangdong from December 5-12, 2016 and I had fair experience so far. From Guangzhou airport, you will need to get Line 3 and transfer to Jiahenanggang and go to Line 2 (Yue Xiu Park), then exit D-1 to China Marriott Hotel. Upon my arrival at the hotel, I noticed a lack of courtesy from the hotel staffs including the hotel guard. The security guard did not even have the initiative to assist us with our luggage. Further, I noticed a lack of coordination between the hotel staffs because I wrote an email to the hotel regarding my late check-in but the staffs were not able to read my email message. The hotel itself was a bit old although it was well-maintained. You can find Starbucks near the hotel however, there were not much choices on their sandwiches and other foods. There is also a dimsum restaurant just below the hotel that served great foods but it was quite expensive. The breakfast foods served by McDonald’s located just across our hotel were not hot at all. Located at the back of the Marriott hotel are a lot of small restaurants you can freely choose from. These restaurants also served delicious foods. If you can afford it, you can also travel to another station via train because there are a lot of dining places there. The Yue Xiu Park just fronting the Marriott hotel is such a nice place to relax. There is a new establishment that is under construction just across the hotel and I think this will create too much noise that may disturb the hotel guests this year. If you want to buy clothes, there is Guangzhou central with lots of cheap clothing especially for women. It has two buildings and you will really enjoy shopping there. I will be back at China on March 2017 but this time I will check-in at a different hotel so that I can also make observations based on my experiences there.
I have been staying here for years and doing business in China for a decade. The managers are great. The Executive lounge is quite decent. However, their internet service is absolutely rubbish. Even after their recent upgrade, it is barley adequate. It is really quite shocking how a hotel of this level and full of business travelers can continue to offer the most inconsistent paltry 1Mbps connection in all of Asia. So prepare to be frustrated numerous times while trying to work, other than that, it is a nice hotel.
Had a little big language problem but overall service was good. Hotel standard is not exactly of 5 star anymore. I have stayed here before as well but this time it was not upto the Marriott standards.
