I'm not particularly picky but if I'm paying premium prices for a hotel I expect a certain level of luxury. Overall the hotel is OK but I don't think it's worth the price tag. I appreciated that I was brought tea and a wet towel when downstairs. As I was checking in on the 47th floor, I had to keep asking about executive lounge services. One would think that the staff would offer this information for guests who are checking into the executive levels. The hardware definitely shows age. There are lots of dings and scratches on the chairs and tables. The most annoying thing was that upon entering my room, there was a very unpleasant smell of sweat and general body odor. I brought it up with the bellboy and he said he would call housekeeping to take care of it. Lady came in with 2 cans and air freshener and went at it. I had to stop her before she suffocated me with chemicals.
The hall ways are really dark. Maybe it's an attempt to conserve energy? It felt a bit odd. The carpet and bed skirt had some nasty stains. The bathroom was very nice but there wasn't enough water pressure for the shower.
Hotel staff are nice and polite and always smiling. The food in the lounge was so-so. I did not patronize the other facilites. If I were to return to Dalian I would probably give another hotel a try before I decide whether or not I'd come back.
