Shangri-La Hotel Dalian
Ranked #1 of 1,226 Hotels in Dalian
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2012

The grand and imposing lobby certainly gave a good impression, and the check-in was smooth and efficient.

The room, whilst perfectly adequate, was a little dated in parts as noted by many reviewers. Also, being a non-smoking room, a very slight but certainly detectable whiff of tobacco in the room came as an unwelcome surprise. Did not even bother with the gym which I suspect was perhaps last renovated in the early 90s! Another notch deducted after the room service meal which I ordered directly and personally from the Chinese restaurant: the fish dish was so bony I barely touched it, after I was assured there would only fillets with minimal amount of bones...

The overall verdict: a property more suited to the Traders brand than the flagship Shangri La.

Always been a fan of Shangri-La, in terms of its consistency in service level and quality. This hotel in Dalian is no different. As with all Shangri La hotels, location is superb. A few good restaurants nearby (recommended by the staff) where you get great seafood - possibly the best value for money if you are a fan of abalone. Dalian is possibly amongst the most beautiful cities in China.

With a grand lobby entrance which has oriental-like interiors (and very golden too), checking in was a breeze. Check in staff (and the concierge) have acceptable command of the English language. Rooms are reasonably sized albeit a little bit dated. You could request for the room which faces the harbour, but there's a big construction side next to it. Free internet is available, which is the least you expect nowadays. Breakfast was a gastronomical delight - choices were really out of this world.

Would certainly highly recommend this hotel. The hotel rates are undoubtedly very reasonable too. No wonder it has been holding on to its No. 1 position in Trip Advisor.

Pros: Service was prompt when asking for specific things such as extra cot ready upon check-in, children's menu orders served first at the cafe', staff in restaurants and front desk friendly, baby chairs. Opportunities to improve: not many to list since we mainly used the hotel as a base for exploring, and did not use many of the facilities (swimming pool, spa) and recognized the hotel will be different from a Shangri-La in SH or BJ. Taxis took a long time to come, but that was likely more due to the National holiday timing of the stay. Location was ok. The Shangri-La is a 10 min walk from Zhongshan Square, although there's not a lot of restaurants or sights in that square. If you prefer non-Chinese restaurants, there's few in Dalian ("Olive Garden" is across the street---not related to the chain with similar name in the US). Room condition was fine (normal Shangri-La China level).
