We stayed at the Starway Parkview Hotel for the sole reason that it was within walking distance of my elderly in-laws. In general, it's not in a convenient location since there are no subways nearby. If you know the city, there is a bus stop right out front. My wife's family negotiated a substantial discount over posted rates and the rooms were spacious with the advantage of having laminate floors that clean easily. Most 2nd and 3rd tier Chinese hotels (and the Starway is certainly in that category) have carpet that tend to show up the fact that they typically house barnyard animals in the rooms when paying guests aren't in residence. So, the Starway earned 5 stars in cleanliness on the Chinese scale. However, a couple of mornings, the hot water didn't work and when we reported it the first time, the desk clerk came up and tried to assert that the tepid water coming from the tap was hot. Air condition didn't work for the majority of the time, internet service extremely slow, and the staff was polite and friendly in a sort of Chinese way, i.e. not very much.
