Ideally located alongside the Li River, the Sheraton Guilin overlooks the river to the east and is adjacent to the charming Xangbi (Elephant Trunk Hill). In a city where luxury hotels are yet to be developed, the Sheraton offers the best international standards that are unrivalled in the area with an outdoor swimming pool and gym among the facilities.
Each guest room at The Sheraton Guilin is simple yet comfortable and most importantly has a river view. The hotel has a bar and a buffet restaurant although just a few minutes walk from the hotel are a selection of excellent local restaurants.
The main attractions of this area include river cruises, cave carvings, parks and local villages, all a short drive outside of Guilin. It is a fascinating contrast to be in the countryside after seeing some of the larger cities such as Beijing or Shanghai and here you can see a completely different way of life for the more rural Chinese communities.
The hotel's 408 rooms and suites all have river views and modern furnishings with LCD TVs, air-conditioning and internet access as standard. Categories include Standard, Superior, Deluxe, Club Floor Rooms, Junior Suites and Premier Suites.
Children are welcome at the Sheraton Guilin and will love the activities based on and around the beautiful Li River. Interconnecting rooms, cots and babysitting can all be booked on request.
The Cathay Chinese Restaurant specializes in Cantonese and Sezchaun dishes and overlooks the river. There is also the Lobby Lounge for afternoon tea and drinks and the Atrium Coffee Shop with International and Asian cuisine on the menu. The second floor is home to the outdoor swimming pool, gym, sauna and massage facilities.
From the Sheraton Guilin boat trips on the Li River, bicycle hire, visits to local villages and excursions to point of interest in the area surrounding Guilin are all easily arranged. There is also a 9 hole golf course nearby.
