Xi'an was the first stop on my first, ever, trip to China, so I really didn't know what to expect. I arrived late in the evening after traveling all day, and despite my excitement, I simply wanted to get some rest. I was VERY pleasantly surprised when my driver pulled up to the front of the hotel and said, "Here you are!"
The hotel actually consists of two buildings. The main building is a bit more upscale and contains the reception, dining areas, spa, and more expensive rooms. The other building (just a few steps across the parking lot) is a mix of residential apartments and more modestly priced rooms. I stayed in the latter building and was quite pleased with the accommodations. My room was a double with two double beds. Unfortunately, the beds were stiff as a board and not comfortable, at all. The room was pleasantly decorated and had a refrigerator, mini-bar and select goodies (all chargeable, of course). There was a very nice desk with information about the area and hotel; however, it was all in chinese. The bathroom was large and had embroidered towels and assorted toiletries. Overall, I was happy with the room. Aside from the uncomfortable, I was thoroughly pleased with my stay. The receptionists were tremendously helpful in getting me both checked-in and out in a timely fashion.
If you choose to stay here, you MUST, MUST, MUST have at least one meal in the dining area; it is TRULY unreal! They have PALM TREES growing in the middle of the hotel, and I found the food to be DELICIOUS! I only stayed here for one night, so I had breakfast and was THOROUGHLY pleased!
