Name of Hotel: Holiday Inn Hefei
Comments about Hotel: Beautiful, comfortable hotel. Stayed there back in 2000 when adopting my second child, and it was even better in '06. Attractive cheerful rooms with comfortable temperature. Windows open if you need a little air. Plenty of TV stations for "down time." Attached to a nice (but expensive) department store, if you want to shop. Staff is extremely courteous and welcoming. Drinkable water spigot in bathroom sink. Highly recommend this hotel.
Office or Orphanage: Hefei SWI
Sights to See in this city: Local park/zoo with rides, if you have older children. Temple of Lord Bao, a medieval judge. There is a "wax museum" section in this temple. Very interesting.
Baby supplies can be purchased at: Guide will take you to a grocery store not far from hotel if you wish.
Places to eat we liked: The hotel restaurant on the 29th floor is outstanding. I have been to seven different hotels in China during my three adoption trips, and this restaurant definitely has the best food at the most reasonable prices.
Things you ought to know while staying here: The air is very polluted, not just here but in all Chinese cities. If you have allergies or asthma, bring whatever you need to keep comfortable.
