US Ambassador Shuns Luxury Hotel

A recent incident in China over the US Ambassador Gary Locke shunning a five star hotel in Hainan and trading down to less expensive has created waves in Mainland Chinese social media circles.
Locke who was attending a conference declined to stay at the Sofitel Bao Hainan as it was too expensive, despite many other politicians opting in at a high rate according to an article in the South China Morning Post.
