"Quiet night's sleep - great breakfast"
I stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Downtown Beijing on a short business trip from Shanghai. I wanted a reasonably priced hotel near the center and close to a metro line. For the US$116 I paid (including taxes), a hotel of this class was not exactly cheap in China, but the room was very comfortable, quiet and the breakfast included was really much more than I would have expected. The metro (line 4) is a very short walk from the hotel...less than 5 minutes. The hotel is not exactly cutting edge stylish, and the corridor from the check in desk to the elevators is a bit dreary, but other than this, I can't complain. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place, although I think that it would be possible to find a decent Chinese hotel for somewhat less. There are many restaurants very near the hotel.
"Left with a sore back"
Stayed here for four nights on business trip to Beijing. The bed was really uncomfortable and felt worn out. Room was smelly and other patrons smoked int the hallways even though the hotel was indicated as non smoking. Staff were helpful and courteous. The hotel is also near restaurants, fast food outlets and shopping malls.
"A home away from home!"
I have stayed at this hotel countless of times, I used to live in a city near Beijing and coming to city and staying at this hotel was a wonderful escape. I have chosen to stay at this hotel because the staff really embody the "can do" attitude expected of IHG staff. The hotel staff is super helpful and kind. One day I arrived on my birthday and there was a piece of cake and a fruit plate in my room along with a b-day card. The hotel is 2 minutes walk from the subway, shopping and 10 minute drive to the West Railway Station. There are also lots of restaurants nearby, but the hotel has one of the best buffets restaurants in the city. The hotel's atmosphere is mostly business, since it is located in the financial district, but I always felt welcome and received great service. I definitely recommend this hotel, special for those coming to Beijing for the first time.
"Good for a business stay"
My husband was invited on a business trip here and our host suggested the Holiday Inn. This is not a tourist destination although I had a very nice morning in a local park and walked to the Capital Museum. There is little in the way of attractions close by. That being said we had a very nice stay. Our first room smelled smokey and we were immediately switched to a new room on request. The rooms are smaller compared to other places we stayed but it was sufficient. Very clean bathrooms. Western style buffet with a la carte menu. Staff was friendly, helpful and for most part spoke English.
"Only stayed for a couple of nights"
This was a good place, close to a lot of well connected buses, trains to get into town and see the main attractions. The hotel chain does a good job of providing similar services they would in other hotels.
