Excellent hotel in the central part of the city.Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: It was a great place to stay.
Cons: The cleaning of the bathroom was done superficially leaving the soiled marble to tell the story.
Location: Central location. I walked to a very nice yes "Chinese Restaurant" (that's what the signage said); subway two blocks and best Peking Duck next door!
The immediate impact of the hotel as you enter is that of a Grand Old Hotel. It has much detail and ornamentation that you wouldn't associate with a newer hotel. The rooms are built around an open center that goes all the way up to the ceiling which must have been about 18-20 stories high making quite an impressive impact. However I found out the hotel is quite new (build to house people initially for the Olympics). There were staff that spoke English to be found. The included breakfast offered a wide assortment of foods and was plentiful and good. The rooms are very large and offer a bathtub (with salt crystals for a relaxing soak) as well as a large shower. Television had multiple channels for news, information and entertainment which included multiple premium movie channels. The Gray Lines representative in the lobby was helpful in booking a tour as well as providing activities I could do on my own within walking and/or cab/subway travel nearby. Only negative I experienced was the marble surface around the bathroom sink clearly had not been cleaned well for a long time. There was residue from previous use apparent on most all the large surface. I was apple to clean it with some soup and elbow grease using one of the many towels that were available. Not a deal breaker. This is an exceptionally good hotel. You will be pleased if you do stay there if you are going to Beijing.
