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.
How to Get There
We just finished up another stay at Sofitel Jinan, and I thought it was about time I write up a review of this hotel. We have stayed multiple properties and we are the gold member of Accor Club.
Service at this hotel is absolutely fantastic all around. Especially thanks to Assistant Manager, Meria Xiong. She made the check in/out process was by far the easiest I’ve seen at any property.
The breakfast buffet is delicious. As my husband got the deadly flu, the kitchen staff was making sure he would get some food/fruit for him to get speedy recovery. The Staff were all genuinely happy to help with anything. They were extremely friendly and professional. They really take pride in caring for their guests. Especially thanks to Chief Bob, Isabel Du, Elanine Zhang and Sunny. They were excellent.
We were kindly offered an upgrade at no extra charge for a bigger room. The lovely touch of staff signing card by Meria Xiong for my husband was sweet, as he was really sick.
I would like to thank the staff for making our stay so memorable. We will cherish the memories they made Sofitel in Jinan forever.
Ping & Gerard
During my stay in this hotel, I felt just as easy and comfort as home， the survey is marvelous，especially the doorman Anton. I really want to appreciate it that he gave me a warm welcome, helped me carry my luggage to my room and even bought me a Band-Aid in the middle of the night when I asked him to do. He is a good doorman so that he deserve my good comment.
We stayed in the Sofitel for one night en route back to Sydney, we didn't get to avail of all the services the hotel had to offer due to the short duration of our stay. The bedroom was very nice, lots of space and bathroom equally impressive. We had buffet breakfeast on the 49th floor, great selection of food and very attentive staff.
Staff on reception/concierge etc were very helpful.
We would stay here again if we visit Jinan.
A really welcoming hotel with some excellent staff. From the front office at Reception (with a great, enthusiastic manageress in Amy Liang who will ensure you have everything you need). The revolving restaurant on the top floor gives great views over the city (I admit I stuck to the European style meals mostly as some Chinese delicacies were too much for me eg duck heads and chicken feet but if you want to try them..) I loved the Biscotti restaurant (def try the Aberdeen angus tenderloin) where the waitress Bella was fantastic, always smiling and eager to ensure you were happy and enjoying your meal. The club room was well worth the extra as the staff there (Alex, Melissa, Candice, Lucy and Kiki) were outstanding. Always happpy to meet any requests, help in any way and make you feel really special
Excellent service. Very polite people attending guests.
The food was delicious as well, particularly the desserts.
The 47th floor is a very quiet and kind place where you can rest after a long working journey.
In particular Kiki Liu and Candice Zhang, were so nice.
