The room was perfect, the a/c (important most of the year) functions well and quietly. Beds very comfortable. There were problems with the wifi which the hotel staff was able to sort out. Nice bathroom, great attendants. Friendly and helpful front desk people.
Vastly-- again, vastly-- overpriced buffet breakfast/lunch/dinner. Good food, but an absurd cost. Urumqi has many, many, many, good places to eat. Grab a cab, head do NanMen, walk south and eat anywhere-- a large plate of dumplings will set you back $2, a more elaborate dinner for two might run $10-$20 if you go fancy.
But the restaurant pricing is the only downside to this very, very, nice hotel.
