We found the Marriott also known as the China Hotel to be a comfortable and clean hotel with good facilities including an outdoor pool and a choice of restaurants and bars. As with most hotels in Asia, there is a high ratio of staff to guests and a pleasing emphasis on quality of service. We were always made to feel very welcome, and front-line staff are mostly proficient in English. The comfort was great, very spacious. You can work comfortably. Most people at the front desk are impeccable and are willing to help in any possible way. Overall we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and and would recommend it as a safe, convenient and comfortable place to stay in Guangzhou.
