Jinjiang Binguan (Jǐnjiāng bīngguǎn) Review
For years this was the city's best hotel—foreign dignitaries and bigwigs from Beijing could always be found milling around the lobby. Although it now competes with five-star hotels all over the city, it's regained a bit of its buzz by putting the award-winning celebrity chef Christopher Dufosse in charge of the dining room. On the fifth floor, the Jinye French Bistro brings authentic French fine dining to the city. The rooms are a bit dated, but do have flat-screen TVs, stereo systems, step-out balconies, and spacious bathrooms.
