It's about 15 min walk to the Olympic Sailing Center which has a great view of the pretty bay area. 10 min to the Five-Four Square. We liked their breakfast restaurant that has Cantonese Dim Sum.
Their shrimp dumplings were the largest ones I have seen in both Hong Kong and Guangzhou! We ordered 3 times in one hour. The rooms are clean and quiet. Everything is as nice as you would expect from a world class 4 star hotel. Really enjoyed the hotel, and the staff was nice and helpful.
The only complaint was the check-in was hectic with multiple lines at the counter, which made the elite program line pretty much useless. At other times, it did look quite empty. [Less]
