"Accessible luxury and travel tips"
I was n Beijing for 3 days and chose to stay in 2 hotels - one in Sanlitun for a friend and one in Sanyuanqiao because of its accessibility to Haidian Qu and the Airport express. The Intercontinental was a delight at a price of course! The lobby lounge was an open area dressed as a library. In the evenings they had modern fire places all lit up. The room was unusual as you entered through the bathroom. You opened the door to a landing space and then via the bathroom to the bedroom. The room was beautifully decorated and had every amenity you needed - bathrobe, slippers, shoe shine, well stocked fridge, liquor and an espresso machine... The hotel had several F&B outlets, a massage/spa and a well equipped gym. Just outside you're in the heart of Sanlitun area which is touristy but offers a variety of international and local cuisine, shops and entertainment. Most will speak some smattering of English. Taxis are plentiful and cheap. In Beijing I've yet to be taken advantage of even tho I'm an overseas born Chinese and hardly speak Mandarin. A few travel tips in China: 1) carry small change ($1,10,20,50) - most things don't cost that much, 2) make sure you carry cash as most Chinese owned restaurants etc don't accept foreign credit cards (in any form visa, MasterCard etc), 3) print out your addresses in Chinese so that people can read and help you (most biz addresses are a confusion to taxi drivers) 4) the airport express is not well networked to taxis, only well networked to subway routes and bus stops 5) for women travelers, bring walking shoes! Beijing is v safe for female travelers.
"Excellent service for a business stay"
I stayed at Intercon Beijing Beichen during a business trip for 3 days. The staff provided excellent service and went the extra mile to help you with your needs. I needed a meeting room for business purposes, and with a big conference happening, all the rooms were booked out. I went to concierge for alternatives and was very impressed by their service standards. I spoke with Tony from concierge and he provided me with a few options for meeting places, even going out of the way to do site recces with me. He took time to understand my needs and worked within my budget. He was innovative and flexible and managed to work out a solution to provide me with a suitable meeting space. I am very impressed by his professionalism, attentiveness to detail, and his willingness to go the extra mile. Intercon Beijing Beichen is also a stone's throw away from the China National Convention Center as well as the National stadium. There's also a mall located opposite the National stadium (approx 5-10mins walk) if travellers want to get some food and drinks. There's also a supermarket located inside. I had an excellent stay at Intercon Beijing Beichen.
"This place is top-notch"
One of the best Intercontinental properties I have ever stayed at, through a consistent combination of good clean rooms, great overall property, and a truly marvelous staff that is much more consistently fantastic than any other property. Many places have some team members that are good, and can go the extra mile to make a stay truly memorable, but this property seems to have everyone trained that way, so there are consistent little perks such as drink coupons, upgrades, and a general focus on trying hard to delight customers.
We stayed for a couple of nights at the Intercontinental Beijing Beichen and had a comfortable stay. It was a nice experience staying there. The staff both at the front desk and restaurant is very friendly and helpful, especially the manager Ricky is so nice, breakfast buffet leaves almost nothing to be desired, if you want have a walk, the next park is only 5 minutes away.
Flew into Beijing on a Thursday and stayed until Sunday. This hotel has great staff. Every breakfast I was greeted by different staff with the same great attitude. She's the food was good. For dinner out group had the duck and it was great. On Saturday, the Olympic village was a short walk away. The front desk was great at check-in and check-out. I am really looking to my return visit. Highly reconned this hotel.
