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.

No Breakfast included?!

Hi!
I booked a room on the accorplus website for April 4 to 7 for 2 with breakfast for 2.
Actually this is my second time booking as an accorplus member and i always make sure to include breakfast.
1. During check in, they do have an "accor line" but for the 2 times i've been here, ...there was nobody there... the bellboy even asked me to queue up on the regular line which felt a bit embarrassing.
2. I was surprised during my recent stay, after having breakfast, they told me that breakfast was not included but after showing my accorplus card they said i can avail of 50% off as an accorplus member. just to avoid this awkward moment I told them to just deduct it from my deposit.
I had breakfast somewhere else instead for the next days.

Since i had made an an earlier booking.
Sad to say, i have to go back to this hotel once again this April 20.

I really hope some accorplus people can help me out because i do not feel this treatment in other countries.
I stayed at room 2517
The aircon is already at 20 degrees but felt like 25 degrees.
I hope I won't have the same problem again.

Great Stay!

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.

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.
