"Very, very happy days!"
The most generous welcome I received was only a foretaste of the care taken by everyone in the Peninsula team. Their attentiveness lasted for the whole of my stay. After renovation, the Peninsula can be proud of the way modern technology has been combined with traditional Chinese features. There is an exciting feel to the hotel. But in my own room, I could easily relax. In the restaurants, my meals were attractively presented and served - and delicious! From the hotel it is possible to explore some places of particular interest on foot. I found it easy to obtain help when I wanted to go further afield but from wherever I am, it is always a joy to return to ‘my home away from home’.
"Unreal in the heart of Beijing"
I just have to say that I had lower expectations for Beijing but this hotel has it all-- absolutely gorgeous common spaces, beautifully renovated rooms, awesome food, and top notch service. Its run impeccably and its got to put all other 5 stars to shame in Beijing. All staff from desk to f&b to managers to valet to gym/spa to transportation/front door and bell services are amazing. If ever in Beijing only one place to stay. Rooms are so high tech and well appointed. Beds are a Frette dream!
"Love the newly upgraded rooms"
Great location right near shopping area and restaurants. Our room was newly renovated and had iPads controlling everything. There was a printer in the pull out wall unit and charging plugs for everything built right in. It is a dream hotel for the business traveler. International phone calls were free from the desk phone. Wifi was excellent. The bathroom had a tub with a TV and an iPad that had a spa setting that lowered the lights and turned on soothing music with the push of a button. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was varied and delicious
"Lovely Loft Suite!"
We spent 2 nights at the Peninsula Beijing to celebrate my husband's birthday in March. Having heard about the brand new renovations to the hotel, we were eager to enjoy our time in their loft suite. Top of the range modern high tech approach to all the renovations. Most everything is controlled by a keypad, from the television to room service to the lighting. There was also a charming "Butler Box" into which you could place your laundry / shoes for shining etc - press a button and the items would be picked up and returned without any disturbance to one's privacy. The daily newspaper was also delivered in this manner. Upon arrival at the hotel there isn't a large reception check in / check out area, so we were ushered to the lobby lounge and asked if we wanted a drink. Neither of us actually wanted anything but as we thought it was part and parcel of the Peninsula check in process, I asked for a cup of tea and my husband had water. The front desk staff came to our table to arrange the check in process and afterwards we got up to go to our room. The waitress ran after us to ask us to sign for the check. I must admit I was a little taken aback because I really thought it was the Peninsula's version of other hotels' "welcome drinks"... Not a big deal but I was just a bit surprised. We asked to have a quick lunch at their "coffee shop" restaurant as we wanted a simple sandwich. We were directed to Jin, which to our surprise only served fine dining-type fare. The set lunch was reasonably priced but the food was sadly very ordinary. This however, was the only bad meal we had at the hotel over the course of our stay. Room service and breakfast was excellent. In general, the service at the Peninsula was terrific. Upon arrival I had one of their home-made oatmeal raisin cookies - I mentioned how delicious they were to the hotel ambassador Mary, and she very kindly made arrangements for me to have an entire bag to bring home on the day of our departure. Everyone was very accommodating and eager to make our stay as wonderful as possible. These such thoughtful gestures certainly gave us a very positive overall impression of the Peninsula Beijing.
"Hotelrooms...on a new level"
since more than 25 years, I do spend an average of 60 to 80 nights a year in 5 star Hotels all over the world. After the renovation, I do believe that these new rooms are now the best Hotel rooms worldwide (such level, you don't find in Dubai, Hongkong or Singapore)...indeed ultra luxury, large (smallest rooms do have 65 square meters), latest technology etc etc...and: the usual great service, you are used to when you stay in a Peninsula as a regular guest. I'll be back for sure!
