Business in Tianjin? 11/6/2010

The Holiday Inn Tianjin Riverside Hotel really surprised me on a recent trip.  I checked into the hotel today after a long journey from the US.  A very nice, new, modern hotel located right on the river.  Fairly easy access to the Tianjin Railway Station which is convenient for anyone taking the high speed train to/from Beijing.  As you may or may not know, Holiday Inn Hotels in China are nothing like Holiday Inns in the USA.  In China, it is a luxury hotel chain comparable to Westin’s, Hyatt’s, Marco Polo Hotels, etc.  The only thing you have to watch out for are some of the locations that are older and are starting to age.  This one however, was in great shape.  The rooms were large and the Hotel is centrally located – convenient for most of downtown Tianjin.  Note:  If you are headed to TEDA – you may want to explore other options.

Bottom Line:  Brand New (2008).  Very good place to stay.  Great location.  Breakfast is OK.
