The Art Senses Hotel is a bit confusing - it has a huge sign above the entrance declaring it as the 'Sovereign' Hotel. Not sure which it is or if it was the Sovereign and is now Art Senses but the signage hasn't been changed. In any case this is a very average hotel - not in a bad way - in a functional way. It is a clean basic hotel ideal for business travelers.
Be aware that English is limited within the hotel, pretty much only the manager spoke English with any confidence but the hotel staff are very quick to ensure you are looked after and if they can't help they'll find the manager who certainly will.
Room is fine. Only cable channels in English was CNN but we are in the heart of China.
The only area that was not so average was the breakfast - the food selection was very oily and didn't allow for western tastes. Again - in the heart of China so expectations need to be measured.
Would recommend walking up the main road two blocks where there is a major shopping mall which features a large array of restaurants - for dining this was a better option. In fact the huge wide streets are one of many charms to be enjoyed in Chengdu. It's not just about Pandas.
Would I stay here again? For business - probably. If it was for personal travel I'd probably stump up some extra dollars and stay at the Intercontinental or Holiday Inn for a slightly less jarring local experience.
