"Great Value, best lounge food and wine in Beijing"
Stayed one night with my wife in the hotel, such a memorable stay with great value for money. Our room was on the 17th floor, very spacious and with lounge benefits, the variety of food they offered in the lounge was just unbelievable, we've got nice balanced salad bar, refined Sushi with caviar on top, good quality of beef and very tasty spring chicken, all nicely done and could reach a Michelin star even in my opinion. They've got VOSS water in the chiller at your choice and offer decent wines. I must recommend this great lounge benefit to all travelers to Beijing. MUST TRY the lounge, room condition, service and food, too good to be true.
"Large but the smoking is not good"
This is an upscale hotel in the business district of Beijing that is a little pricey but may be value for what you get. They do many things very well and there are just a few things they could improve on. Some parts of the hotel reeked of cigarette smoking which to a non smoker like me is quite disgusting. What we liked: - the location is good for most things. Close to banks, food and upmarket shops the location should be ok for most people. Taxis are readily available but i cannot comment on public transport. - the room size. Very large and an impressive layout. Top marks in this regard. - Pillows - linen and bath towels. Excellent. - TV. A large selection of English channels including movie channels. - Bathroom. Large with an excellent layout featuring the see through glass wall with the electric blinds. We found: - the lighting to be confusing. Are there any upscale hotels that manage to do this well' - the view to be less than impressive. - the staff to be very attentive and obliging but at times not that helpful. For instance they put us in a Taxi which went to the wrong place. - no shaver in the bathroom!' I have to go out and get a shaver in a hotel of this price/quality - really not good enough. The real issue we had is the smoking. The room air conditioning often fed smoke laden air into the room. In fact, stepping out into level 11 from the elevator, the whole hallway stank of smoke. Obviously someone (or more than one person) was smoking somewhere. The staff denied (laughably) that anyone would be smoking in a non-smoking hotel.
"We HIGHLY Recommend the Fairmont Beijing!!"
My husband and I stayed a week over Chinese New Year's at the Fairmont Beijing, our experience from beginning to end was outstanding! We are Platinum Fairmont members so always love our Fairmont experiences, but this was over the top. We were greeted by the Fairmont Ambassador John and Director of Rooms, Matei. The warmth displayed by all made us feel right at home. The service, breakfast buffet and Peking duck one night in their restaurant were impeccable Our suite on the Executive Floor was luxurious and spacious, with large living room and master bedroom and an extra large master bathroom, plus a second bathroom. John greeted us before and after excursions and even accompanied us on the subway himself the first morning. John walked with us to a restaurant Hugo had booked for us for dinner because it was a tricky route. Hugo, the concierge, set up all pick ups and excursions expertly. We could not have been happier with this hotel! When we left, John and Matei were there to say goodbye. It was a fitting end to a delightful stay. We recommend it highly!
"Excellent service at Fairmont Beijing!"
This is a luxury property and the rooms are pristine with great staff service. We suggest staying on the executive floor level as they have a huge room that serves meals, snacks, drinks available. They have a business center and you can also check out on the same level. They were gracious and worked hard to give attention to every possible detail and need. Be sure to bring good masks to keep the particles out. The air pollution is dreadful. You can buy them no Amazon before you go. Great jumping off point to see the Great Wall, forbidden city, summer palace and Tianamen square.
"Perfect Stay at Fairmont Beijing"
Had a short but amazing stay in Fairmont Beijing with friends and family. We were greeted by ambassador Mr John Spooner on arrival, who has been living in beijing for almost 10 years. His warm welcome, sense of humor and personal touch set up a great tones for our stay with no doubt. Every one in the hotel were so friendly, Toby the Front Office Manager, Hugo the Concierge, Billy the server at their Chinese Restaurant... all make us feel a home away from home. We've been lucky enjoying the perfect weather with big sunshine everyday. We went visited Mu Tian Yu-the great wall, which with spectacular view, less tourist in comparison with Ba Da lin, got some amazing pictures there. Loved the hot pot (NanMen) on the first night, super busy restuarant, traditional Beijing style, lamb was perfect. Can't wait to pay another visit to Beijing.
