Really good furnishings, furniture, layout, lobby, rooms, bathrooms, fittings, toiletries, conveniences including ipod dock, accessories, location, fitness centre and spa.
The minuses: staff doesn't speak English, the wine list is poor esp. by the glass, the food choice is poor. They have a strange practice of presenting you the check BEFORE they serve the food alongwith the statement: "I need you to sign this NOW". If you want to check in before 10 AM, you must pay an additional half-day. There is no bar. Drinks are served in the lobby lounge. Faxes, though arrived, do not reach your room for several hours unless you call and chase. The coordination between Reservations and Reception is poor: in a group, the wrong person will get the upgrade if he is checking in before you. Breakfast is overpriced at 182 Yuan. English news on TV is limited to one channel: CNN.
