I booked Holiday Inn Chengdu Xindu for a business trip to this district. The manager of Guest Service Centre Ms.Li gave me a phone call before my arrival and kindly upgraded me to the next-category
room and allocate a higher one away from the lift.
On arrival (3 p.m.) I had a great welcome from Ms. Luo at the front desk. And the staff had arranged a tray of fruits in my room and allowed me enjoy a late check-out (4 p.m.) as per my request - really nice touch.
The hotel is lovely, brand new with spacious rooms, wide corridors and an airy feel to the whole place. While not in the city centre it is on the centre of Xindu Distrcit. Carrefour is right next to it, with many cafes and shops in the mall.
I parked my car in the parking lot of the hotel, for free. There are couple of universities in the same community. Great location and very safe.
The hotel has a swimming pool, i stayed there for an hour. Its starry sky ceiling is amazing. 1.4m~1.6m deep, and you can bring your kids here and have a weekend getaway! The gym is big and beyond my expectation. Really impressive.
My room has a big ceiling-to-floor window and a separate bathroom and washroom. I love the bathtub there. The cloakroom is bigger than many other hotels'. Wifi connection is good.
The only things that could be noticed is the quality of teabags and instant coffee. Choose better brand and update them regularly. In my room, the date of production is one year ago. It's still in its expiry date (instant coffee can be preserved for 2 years), but i do think most guests prefer the latest including myself.
As my job finished smoothly, I checked out around 1 p.m.. The other Guest Service Manager Mr. He escorted me to the underground parking lot and gave me farewell. The staffs at this hotel shows great hospitality. In a word, modern feel to the hotel with a nice mix of inside and outside spaces. It makes me have a wonderful stay. Looking forward to the future experience at HI Chengdu Xindu. Thanks to all the staff. [Less]
