In English it was the “Xingrui Pretty Hotel” right next to the McDonalds. Everyone in the hotel was evicted, not just me because I was a foreigner.
In defense of America, there’s a difference between bad service/redneckism and getting shut down by the police. While you can get bad service anywhere, getting the doors taped shut by the police seems to be a China-specific phenomenon.
Anyway we ended up at the Liwan International Hotel and it has been great. Really top-notch hotel and service, just in a bad location lacking any restaurants or shops. We’re moving on to the Gao Xin district today, so I’m hoping for good luck with the next hotel.
