I stayed at the Kerren Hotel for 4 days in late July 2007. It's about 40 mins (or so) from the airport and nowhere near downtown Dalian.
The hotel was busy - I had to check into a suite but it was still very quiet - and the room was good vale at $120 per night. It was strange to be in a full hotel and se very few people. I asked one of the few guests (and even fewer Western guests) where everyone was - at a Karaoke club across Apart from breakfast I didn't actually eat in the hotel but I am able to report that breakfast was pretty good - although westerners find the huge choice confusing (including beef curry).
Unique Quality: For me it's perfect because it's about 5 mins from the factory that I am visiting but I had no complaints whatsoever about the hotel or it's facilities,the Chinese back massage was especially good (at the time). I would have no hesitation in booking here again - in fact I think that I will be there next week - this time I will try to take some pictures.
