Guilin Sheraton We stayed at the Guilin Sheraton, and it was fine, if unremarkable.  Nearby, we got a fantastic one hour foot massage.  Clinton spent a single afternoon in Guilin during his presidency, and our guide said thirty or forty people stayed at this hotel for two or three months, preparing for his visit.
