Hi Everyone! We are back in Shanghai and staying for another week before finally heading back to the states. Per usual, I want to share a little bit of personal traveling insights and review for the places I’ve stayed and enjoyed. Of course you all know that as a mom of two, my standard for hotels during traveling is pretty high, you can read about my hotel review on the Yangtze Boutique Hotel in Shanghai here. Since traveling with kids are both hectic and stressful, a good place to rest and also makes the kids feel at home is super important to me. I am going to share my review on the Hotel we’ve stayed in Hangzhou – Wyndham Grand Royale Plaza Hangzhou.
The Wyndham chain is common in the states, although it is not a top tier luxury hotel, it is very popular for its price point. This particular Wyndham is operated by its Asian operation group and therefore have a higher standard and is a four star hotel. Hotel is adjacent to the breathtaking West Lake (Xi Hu), a recent addition to UNESCOS WORLD HERITAGE list, and located at the North East corner of the famous West Lake, within walking distance of Wulin Street (a famous street for fashion apparels), and close to Hangzhou Tower and Intime department store (both carry luxury designer brands such as Hermes, Cartier, Prada etc).
I like the convenient location of the Hotel and also like the super spacious suites they offer. We stayed at one of the executive suites which has a large living area and small kitchenette as well as a really large bedroom that can fit a travel bassinet offered by the hotel at no extra cost. It also allowed us to access the executive lounge that provides complimentary daily breakfast for two, afternoon snack and a delicious happy hour menu. The kids LOVED all of the snacks and food. It also gave us daily allowance for laundry service which is huge when you have active tots that can easily get dirty. Overall, I really recommend this hotel to all the families that are traveling with kids, I’ll leave the rest for the photos to speak for themselves.
