Fraser Suites Chengdu was a no-brainer: great location, excellent reviews, plentiful amenities and reasonable price. Since accommodations in Chengdu were fairly affordable in general, we did not use hotel points for our stay.
Fraser Suites is in a central location. It is walking distance to Tianfu Square, Renmin Park and most places of interest to tourists. There is a supermarket nearby which is always a plus for us. For those who appreciate the finer things, a luxury mall is adjacent to the hotel. Our room had a lovely view of the Prada store.
Technically, the hotel is serviced apartments. Although some rooms are rented for shorter hotel stays there are many extended-stay residents.
Amenities include an indoor swimming pool, gym and concierge services.
Wi-fi is free and fast but also unsecured. One free breakfast came with the room but we ordered another one so we would both have enough. It arrived on time and was quite tasty.
The English-speaking staff is extremely helpful and friendly. We checked in really late so rather than just wandering around, we asked where we can purchase water nearby (we were still thirsty despite two complimentary bottles). Instead of directing us to a store, the staff member insisted on bringing extra bottles to our room at no charge. The gesture was much appreciated. Also appreciated were the bellman’s efforts in negotiating a taxi price for our ride to the Chengdu panda base.
Our studio deluxe was very, very spacious. It was bigger than many one bedrooms in Chicago. Closets were plentiful and stocked with cozy robes and slippers.
The room included a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, utensils, cookware, plates and other odds and ends. There was even a washer and dryer.
The bathroom was decent but there was only one roll of toilet paper in the room. It’s a bit of a pet peeve when there is no spare roll.
It was stocked with nice toiletries including toothbrush, shower cap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner.
Overall, we were really pleased with our stay at Fraser Suites and wish it had been longer. Our room had all the comforts of home like kitchen and washer/dryer but also the bonus of hotel-quality service. It is a great value in Chengdu and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
