"Nice Hotel in Mediocre Area"
The hotel is very nice and the staff are excellent . I stayed in the Valley Wing and had a great room and had use of the club lounge which was nice. If you need to be in Haidan , this is a great hotel , but much better areas to stay in Beijing
"Business as usual"
It was a business convention for a day and I took a walk in the garden at lunch. It was very enjoyable as it felt like cherry blossom in spring in Japan. There was even a modern bar well stocked but was closed when I visited. I took lunch at the first floor buffet. Everyone got a half lobster which was freshly prepared. Although the hotel might be a bit old in its age, it was still shining bright.
"A Nice Place in Beijing"
I have not stayed at the Shangri-la Beijing in a year. The location is not as convenient if you are in Beijing for business, but great for going there for a holiday. It is close to the zoo and the price is great for a Shangri-la. Service as a whole is good and there are a number of good restaurants on site. China World and Kerry are more convenient, but this is good price for good service.
Stayed here while attending a conference in Beijing for four days. Superb. Near great market as well. The rooms have fabulous bug window overlooking the city. Took in all the sights. Brilliant hairdresser in site. Chinese people were lovely.
"Comfortable Stay with Excellent Staff"
The hotel collection service from Beijing Capital International Airport is excellent. I was met at the arrival gate by a “butler” who guided me to immigration and waited for me at the other side. Once through, we proceeded to collect my luggage from the carousel and then I was escorted to the from to the airport where I was met by the chauffeur who drove me in a Mercedes-Benz S-Class to the Shangri-La hotel on the Western side of pollution-bound Beijing. At the hotel, the check-in was very polite and efficient. I was shown to my room and unpacked. There is ample wardrobe space to hang shirts, suits and shoes. An ironing board and iron are provided to get those creases out of shirts. My room had a King-sized bed which was very comfortable and afforded my many nights of sound, comfortable sleep. The hotel has filtered air-conditioning to keep the smog and pollution out and regulate the ambient temperature. There is a well-stocked mini-bar, if you feel the need for over-priced, unhealthy snacks. There was a very nice desk to work at with power-points to keep your laptop and smartphone powered-up. The free Wi-Fi is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. E-mail drips into your in-box and you can forget about connecting to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or YouTube. Very few Web site load. I thought that this was down to the PRC “great firewall of China” but it wasn’t. Once at work, I connected to the Internet and got access to everything that I wanted. Having said that, I’m no rabid activist! Breakfast as well as Dinner in the main hotel restaurant is excellent. The choice is vast and the quality good. It would have been nice to take breakfast on the patio areas around the lovely garden but unless you want to inhale hard-core pollution; forget about it! The staff were very polite and helpful. Concierge arranged taxis from the hotel into the city, where I was working all week. All-in-all, I had an extremely comfortable and relaxing time at the Shangri-La; I wanted for nothing from the excellent staff. I would just say that there are two Shangri-La’s; a modern one and right next to it (connected at ground floor) the older one, where I stayed. The older one was excellent; I can only imagine what the more modern one was like. The area of Western Beijing sounds good from the description on the Shangri-La Website but only if you love the sight of drab, dreary, high-rise apartments. It would never win an award for being well-sited. Would I say there again next year' Yes, most definitely!
