It lived up to what is expected from a Brand Hotel. Front Desk were pleasant n helpful. We landed at 8 in Tianjin after a 6 hour flight n was treading to wait till check in. We arrived at the hotel at 10ish n was overjoyed when they gave us our room early...so a big thank you to the front desk staff...always helpful n accomadating. They speak English fluently as well. The hotel is meat n tidy...breakfast is basic but adequate the food is labelled wat is suitable for vegetarians. Overall good ecperince...location is good walking distance to Shopping street. Will definately use Holiday Inn Express again.
