There are several hotels on the summit. Expensive for what you get. This thorntree thread is a little dated, but still useful: Huangshan summit accommodation . For next week, make sure you book in advance.
You might also find this thread useful: trails on Huangshan. In Winter, some places such as the West Sea Canyon might be closed.
Here is a map of the mountain.
Nearby are villages such as Xidi and Hongcun which are worth visiting.
We will also stay down the mountain too in one of the spa hotels as apparently there are hot springs there.
Thanks for your help.
Sorry to the OP I sort of taken over the thread.
But another location which I highly recommend for scenery is Jiangjajie. In all the locations I have been in China this would have to be the most scenic and the place is huge. You could spend 3-4 days there easy if you like trekking.

We stayed in a home there overnight in a local home which they rent out rooms for 100 a night I think it was. It was also full moon and the view was spectacular.
The only downside was it was May holiday week and was super busy. I mean super busy!!!!
There are also groups in Beijing that offer their services for free to talk and learn English with westerners and act as guides. As long as you pay for their way they can be useful. I've never used them as I speak a bit of Mandarin and my wife is Chinese so obviously no need to have someone around. But in saying this you don't know them so it might be worth to go through your hotel for a real guide which shouldn't be more than 300-500 Yuan a day or better still, organise a couple a days with a guide and vehicle if you have a group and it shouldn't be more than 600 Yuan a day.
