We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. It was clean and comfortable. The staff were a little stingy with the replacement of toilet paper though. We had fresh apples delivered daily and fresh water. Overall a really nice stay, and a cheap cab ride to anywhere.

2 Bedroom Suite was huge!! Very comfortable. Pool was very nice, locker rooms were very clean as well. My wife said the room service meal was so so but there are plenty of nice resaraunts close by. The hotel is connected to a huge 10 story mall so there was lot's of shopping including a convenience store.
By far the best part of the trip was shopping at "Silk Road". It is a 7 story mall with excellent quality knock-offs of every major brand. Be ready to negotiate, as I got into the swing of things you could buy stuff for 10-15% of their asking price. It is 98% cute Chinese girls who speak excellent English and they are tough, just be ready to walk away and they will give in. If I could bring them back to the US and build a sales staff with them I would be a Billionare in 2 years.
McDonalds and KFC are just a Heartbeat or Heartattack away if you need them. Great little tour company in the lobby with English speaking guides to take you to see the local sights. Beware of the "Foot Massage" place they might take you, They get you in a room while you are getting an incredible footrub and then a Chinese Herbal Doctor and a Tibeten Doctor reads your palm and offers to cure you for a few hundred bucks. This experience will rival any timeshare presentation that you may have been to.
Great hotel, great price and great location.

The only minor complaint I would have about this hotel is finding it! They do not have a map on the web site anywhere, and no one in Beijing knows where 'Financial Street' is because they only know it by the Chinese name (Jirung or something?) If I didn't have the phone # of the hotel with me, I may not have ever found it! Also its about a 10 minute walk to the nearest subway. The hotel itself was great, everything you would expect from a Ritz-Carlton hotel - great service, great room, excellent restaurants and facilities.

We chose this hotel for proximity to our activities and price discount for multiple day stays. It was one of the better Chinese hotels I have stayed in over all my trips to China that the hotels is NOT a Western Brand. They did have 1 staff member at all times that could speak English. While the room accommodations were more than adequate small things like not top sheet on the bed, no control of the Thermostat in the room and some issue of cleanliness (the carpets needed a thorough cleaning) where our biggest issues from a Westerners point of view. All and All though if I can sleep in the bed and have a good shower, everything is good and I could do both of those things. The staff was very helpful in everything we approached them about even warning us when they weren't obligated, to avoid certain things! This section of Haidian district does not have many visible restaurants, though there are some great local restaurant experiences a few blocks off the main road and a magnificent park behind the National library! I would stay at this hotel again!

Not too bad. Some hassle at check in about two beds and bigger room. Lots of cigarette smoke and some funky odors. Tough to get a taxi to drop off at lobby. Got cards for nearby hotel and walked from there. Off the main path, not for first timers or picky travelers.
