There is free wifi throughout the hotel and guest rooms, and guests can buy or borrow items they have forgotten to pack.

The hotel is also adjacent to the Poly Mall commercial complex, Financial Square Commercial Pedestrian Street and Wangfujing Department Store, a 20-minute drive from Nanchong airport and a 15-minute drive from the railway station.
