Recent guest reviews
The hotel is just outside the main part of the city of Suzhou, only minutes away by car. The rooms are spacious. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous with so many choice of both western and Asian dishes. The staff, including those at the breakfast buffet, is very attentive of your preferences and need. we had a fabulous stay there.
Nice and clean rooms, good breakfast buffet. Staff at lobby are professional and friendly, as also the GM of the hotel. Space for improvement: Staff/ waiter/ waitress in restaurant area (seem not very motivated, not very customer oriented).
This hotel gas fantastic acomodations Room is large and offers elegant comfort and everything travelers need at a very affordable price Restaurants are so so. Breakfast buffet is huge but meal is poor Staff is great everywhere
The hotel is in a very peaceful and calm area, and generally very clean. Considering there are alot of flies in Xuzhou, this hotel does well to keep them out. The room is very clean, spacious and comfortable - with all the amenities you can expect from the Crown Plaza and IHG brand. Other areas are kept clean as well and staff are generally helpful. I had a problem with my AC and they were able to fix it quickly. The inroom dining selection needs some more work in the menu section with regard to their "ingredients". See photos. Lastly, the most improvement is needed with the staff's ability to understand and communicate in English. I understand this is a mainland China hotel catering for local needs but the foreign travellers sometimes need attention too. I would suggest the hotel hire one or two staff that are fluent in English conversation so that they can liase between English-speakers and local staff.
Great Crowne Plaza hotel. The room is very nice and comfortable, amenities are good, breakfast is great and the staff is very kind and polite. And the price for the room is one of the best cost-benefit ratio I've seen, so you can't go wrong when in Xuzhou.
The breakfast was great with lots of options. It's about a 15 minute taxi ride to town and depending on the taxi it costs about 20-30RMB. The staff are very helpful and there is a wonderful garden that takes you to the Dalong Lake.
A lovely hotel that is bit away from city center (10 miles) but in very nice surroundings. Service is excellent and staff is very friendly. Room was clean and had nice amenities, a refrig and hot water pot to make coffee or tea. Bed was comfortable. Good water pressure in the shower. This hotel has the best breakfast buffet in all my years of travel: wide selection of Western and Asian foods, artistically & charmingly decorated atmosphere to enjoy your meal, and very nice food service staff.
The gym and indoor pool are excellent but the club lounge is a little strange. It is located just alongside the lobby area is a set of oversize sofa's set a long way apart which makes it a little awkward for business conversations. Not a big deal though and would stay here again. The restaurant downstairs is very good too.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Xuzhou for a 5 day holiday, and we were very satisfied with the hotel. If you compare it to a Western hotel, of course it is not the same. But for Chinese standards, this hotel was heaven. ^_^ We stayed in several international hotels in China, and this one was the best so far. The room was spacious with our own private balcony AND a bathtub (very uncommon in China, even in the bigger, international hotels). The breakfast included a variety of Western food, such as freshly baked pancakes with fresh honey from the comb (yum!), a selection of fruits, croissants, cereals, etc. It might not be as big a selection as you'd get at home, but it is the biggest selection we have found in any Chinese hotel so far. Staff didn't all speak English, but they were very friendly and would generally run to get us someone who could understand us. Hand gestures get you quite far as well though. :) The restaurant is not very cosy, but it serves its purpose. As long as we had good food, we were not too bothered by this. The location is very serenic, next to the lake with a large park. We had lovely walks there and it looked like the locals enjoyed coming out there in their spare time as well. It's a bit outside of town, but the bus stop is right in front of the hotel. A taxi will cost about RMB 15-20, depending where you want to go. In summary, this is good value for the price and well suited if you are looking for a peaceful place to stay.
This a Hotel facing one out of 7 lakes in the town. So ask for the room with a view. In the evening I would recommend to go for a nice walk near the lake. The hotel is quite ok, the service is bit lousy. They have one of the strangest lobby bars I happened to see. Rooms are not small, amenities in place. Restaurant breakfast is quite decent. Only you would see tables connected for 8 people, what would not be common in Europe. I understood it was one of the best hotels in town.
