Stayed on the executive floor. Large room and bathrooms, nicely decorated. No BBC or CNN, which was frustrating. Wireless fine, if not very fast. Note: unable to go to Google or get Gmail in any Xinjiang province hotels. Yahoo and MacMail fine. The hotel seemed in busy, nondescript area, so nowhere really for a walk. I would have rated this hotel a bit higher, but I thought the food was at best average. I don't need Western options. Juices tasted canned. Chinese selections didn't have much taste. Dinner about the same thing. Hotel needs to upgrade food. Also, no gift shop or place to buy drinks or snacks. Nothing. Nowhere nearby that I could find either. Finally, the front desk assigned one room to two different customers on my floor and this caused a lot of upset at 2am that woke everyone up. The front desk folks need more training.
