Overview

Swank urban retreat in downtown Jinan, with a glass-domed pool and a revolving rooftop restaurant

The Lowdown

The award-winning Sofitel Jinan Silver Plaza is a high-rise luxury hotel with epic city views. Fully revamped in 2009, and within walking distance of Quancheng Square, its gleaming exterior is an integral part of Jinan’s dramatic skyline. The lobby is sleek and striking, with super-high ceilings, funky glass sculptures and walls bedecked with brightly colored modern artworks. Sweeping views of Jinan’s mountain backdrop give a sense of space to the already spacious living areas. The 356 guestrooms and suites are done in soft gold and olive tones, with thick pile carpets, Midcentury-style furniture and slick recessed lighting. The marble bathrooms are suitably swank; walk-in rain showers and Lanvin or Hermès beauty products come standard. Hit the treadmill at the gigantic Inzone Gym, or ease aching muscles with a dip in the glass-domed heated pool. The dining options are varied; think fire-baked pizzas at Biscotti, local delicacies cooked in the open kitchen at the Garden, or fancy Asian fare at Silver Sky, a revolving restaurant on the 49th floor. Finish your evening with a glass of wine in the Lobby Lounge, where there’s live piano music seven nights a week.

In the Area

Start your exploration of the ancient capital of Shandong Province with a stroll through the landscaped grounds of Baotu Spring Park. Come in the morning to avoid the crowds, and walk to the pretty Guanlan Pavilion to watch the spring bubbling up through the emerald water. Next, hop in a cab to Thousand Buddha Mountain, in the southeastern section of the city. Climb the 300 stone steps to Xingguochan Temple, and your midday workout will be rewarded with a spellbinding sight: scores of Buddhas carved into the mountainside, as well as many freestanding statues, some dating back 1500 years, to the Siu dynasty.

Wonderful - the revolving restaurant is a must
Reviewed 5 days ago

The first room we were given was a smoking room, even though we had asked for non-smoking. The receptionist was very apologetic and upgraded us to a suite free-of-charge. The suite and the views were absolutely excellent!! We had a lovely time here, even had a TV built into the bathroom mirror in case we were worried about missing the news.
In the bar, the hotel general manager introduced himself, great guy!
The breakfast in the revolving restaurant on the top floor made our holiday to China for us. Wonderful views, massive selection of foods from all around the world.
We had no problem with people being able to speak English either at Reception or key guest areas (bar/restaurant).

A very pleasant short stay

Stayed one night. Staff were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to please us. Room was very spacious, bed perfect, good shower pressure, big bathroom and a hairdryer that wasn’t stuck to the wall or required you to keep a button pressed to make it work ( one of my pet hates )No complaints, will definitely stay again thank you Sofitel

Sofitel in Jinan : where is the consistency?
Reviewed 1 month ago

I am presently guest of this hotel . I always liked Sofitel chain . I find that these hotels very often have a special taste which make them a little special . And the food offer is pretty good . But sorry this one in Jinan no . Let us start from check in : fast and we’ll organised . Room probably would need some upgrading but large and comfortable. But the gym ? To be clear gym is often a weak point in the Accor hotel compared to other western TOP brand but this is really old with very little facilities : substandard! Breakfast has a lot of choice mainly for Asian customer but also for western one. I did not try the Asian good but definitely I did not enjoy the quality of my breakfast and the nice TOP floor room is too hot . In a a few words : where is the luxury?

Excellent business stay

Was on a leisure short trip, away from my business trip. Decided to stay at Sofitel Jinan because of its location from the city, and of course, from the reviews gathered. Upon check in, we were greeted by Assistant Manager Mr Bill Guo. I would like to compliment him on his excellent services rendered to us. He introduced us what's nearby, solve all our enquiries throughout our stay. Before the day of departure, we needed help in booking our train tickets to Shanghai. He even escorted us up to the business centre and book it for us personally. As someone who works in the same industry, Mr Bill Guo really lived up to what is called service standard, and I look forward to meeting him on my next visit to Jinan.

I've stayed here before, and am very satisfied with staff members and quality of service I received. No exception this time, Ms. Zhao 赵, from the 32nd floor has been providing excetional serivice. She is very kind to my mom who is almost 91 years-old. She treats my mom as if she is her own mom. I'm very touched by her kindness.
