Guide Comments:

My son and I went to Changzhou on a weekend getaway with another friend and her children. We were thrilled with the hotel because it really catered to the kids' needs without making us feel like lepers for bringing very excited children to a business hotel. Chinese staff are always friendly toward children but the Changzhou Shangri-La staff were exceptionally so.

Two great features are a small shallow kids' pool for children to splash around it. Situated right next to the large lap pool, it's a perfect place for one parent to swim while the other looks after the kids. The other wonderful thing is that kids eat at the buffet free of charge. We found the food to be a wonderful mix of Western and Chinese. It was Singapore night on our second night and the kids delighted in watching the chef prepare traditional foods. My friend and I delighted in the authentic curries.

The hotel is a perfect place to stay if you're headed to the Dinosaur Park as it's merely a five minute taxi ride. If you're in Changzhou on business, then it's also convenient as the hotel is situated in the heart of the new business district north of the city center.
