Stayed at the Wyndham for two nights while on a China tour last year. This is a fairly new hotel as it was opened this decade. Of the hotels I stayed in China, visually this was the nicest one. The rooms are large with high ceilings and the bathroom is massive. You have a choice of using the shower or the bathtub which has a TV screen to the side!
Though this should have been the hotel that I enjoyed staying at the most on the trip, it wasn't. There wasn't any in-room wi-fi, though there is in the lobby downstairs but it was spotty as well. The TV channel selection was lacking. A lot of CCTV government channels mostly. I never could find the right temperature for the room which led to restless nights here after reaching the hotel late on both nights. To be fair, I arrived here on the beginning and tail end of long trips both times. One being the flight from Seattle with a stopover before arriving in Shanghai.
The breakfast buffet was also disappointing. As we were with a tour group, lines were long for anything that needed to be ordered like eggs. Hence, I stuck to the items you could help yourself to which I found to be average. Given the Wyndham's brand prestige, I would have hoped the buffet would have been better.
The location of this Wyndham truly is the nicest building on the block as it is located in a commoner residential area where you can find locals hanging about. The sights and sounds that I encountered by walking a just block away from here gave me a feeling of awe. Saw a few things that I would not typically see living in the US.
Overall, I thought the Wyndham was good, but not great. It is a very nice hotel visually, but I don't think it is up to par with the Wyndham name.Recommended for:Business Travelers
