Bed and pillow where one of the most comfortable ones I've been in. Breakfast buffet has a nice spread of Chinese and American choices.
Staff cleaning the hotel have great attention to detail. Everything is placed very orderly upon my return which includes any items in the floor, desk, chair or bed (ie shoes, clothes, pens, money, etc). Even though I try to not waste and use as little as their daily provided amenities, by the 3rd day, they dumped their provided toothbrush, tooth paste, shaver, cream, soap, towels, etc and provided me with new ones. Bottled water is complimentary and plenty. Gym staff would approach you with towels and water, or help you with any of the equipment.

Our room was comfortable with a huge comfortable queen size bed that came with 4 pillows. Bathroom was nice with marble floors and walls, complete with a tub and separate shower and separate toilet! But looks were somewhat deceiving as the toilet stopped flushing twice. Having a separate shower was great, except the water doesn't drain completely after use and water sometimes seeped out into the adjacent toilet area. In the room itself, your treated to a nice sized LCD TV with loads of channels, but I wish they had more English channels....there's only so much Discovery channel you can watch at night. As for other hotel amenities, the indoor heated pool was nice as there's almost never people in it. There's also 3 restaurants inside, Thai, Chinese and an international buffet. Weirdest thing though was every floor we went to smelled like cat urine in the morning. Strange...but overall the stay was comfortable.
But the problem is location. It's in a quiet more residential district that's far from central Beijing. Although it's on the main artery, it's about 40min from the airport, so getting to Tian'anmen square takes almost 25 min by bus. The bus stop is about 3 min walk but the nearest subway was about a 10 min walk. Best suggestion if you want to take the subway, is to take the bus 1 stop to the Wukesong station. Good food is rare here as well. But I guess you get what you pay for.

The hotel was much nicer than any Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at in the states. The food at the restaurants was great. The staffs English wasn't perfect but they knew enough to help us get where we were going and they were very friendly. My only complaint is that the AC did not work that well in our room and it was a little hot but that was almosy every where we webt in Beijing. Would definitely stay there again.
