"Not worth 5 star"
Our non-smoking room smelled of smoke so we opened the window. It took 2 days to get the smell livable for non-smokers. If they were selling it as non-smoking, they should have washed the furniture, cleaned the carpet and drapes to help eliminate the smell. Even the bathroom smelled. We couldn’t get the TV on and the room was warm – no air conditioning. The next day they put a machine in the room to help with the smoke smell but when we returned from our day, had to get them to remove it as it was so loud. With the air conditioning, it is the law that no air conditioning goes on until the 19th. The hotel was going to check with the government if they could put it on. Not sure if it happened because we always had to keep our window open to cool our room down. The meals at the hotel weren't that great - food cold and they weren't good at refilling empty dishes. Even had to ask to refill the butter which took a while. When the bread was gone, none to replace it. The only highlight was the omelette station, which of course was lined up. Of the 3 hotels we stayed in China, this was the least favourite of everyone in our group. Great food in Morton's Cafe - best hamburger ever! Staff very friendly.
This hotel has an excellent location,phantastic pool and gym, however ,there were a number drawbacks,which are unusual for 5 star hotel: Aircondion only heating although it was warm outside, resulting in temperature constantly above 25 oC. Temperature control via window opening, which might result in noise problems,if you have a room towards the main street. There was only one chair in the room,one of us had to sit or lay on the bed. After asking for a second chair, we got one,which was defect. Our room was next to the elevator,noise disturbances until mitnight. Altogether,for a 5 star hotel disappointing
We enjoyed three evenings on the 18th floor at this beautiful hotel. The rooms are spacious and the floor to ceiling windows gave us a wonderful view of the city. A wonderful breakfast buffet is served every morning with both Chinese and American choices. The staff was courteous and helpful.
"Great Location and Value"
This is an excellent hotel at an excellent price. For Approximately $150 a night I had a lovely room with all the expected amenities. The location is excellent as you can walk to all of the great shopping in Wangfujing Street and you can easily walk to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. The hotel has several dining options or you can walk out the door to many more. I enjoyed the large East and West breakfast and I found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Beijing is a great value these days and I recommend this hotel if you would like to get a sense of Chinese luxury.
