“good hotel-a bit "out-of-the-way"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Very comfortable spacious and clean rooms.
Breakfast offers a wide choice of food.
The staff is very helpful and friendly.

The hotel is close to a subway station (10 minutes walk) but a bit out-of-the-way and not very well known by taxi drivers.

Oppsite the hotel is a Costa Coffee and a Parkson Department store with a supermarket in the basemant floor ( open until 22.00 ).

Unfortunately no restaurants nearby.

Spent three nights here. Very comfortable hotel. Comfortable bed, good gym and pool long enough to swim laps which was a huge bonus. Only problem was the gym was not 24 hours so when you are jet lagged and want to work out at 4am, you cannot. They had a free shuttle bus which took guests to local companies at 8.30am which was extremely convenient.

I have stayed three days/two nights only and therefore it was a good choice. It is quite close to the airport (only 80 RMB - 100 RMB depends on the traffic). And it is located at the 3rd ring north east and a subway station is in walking distance. Very close (next building) is a Costa Coffee inside the Parkson Shopping center, which offers shopping until 10:00 p.m..
Room was clean with enough space and the service is friendly. WLAN was free of charge for me and worked quite well, with acceptable speed. Breakfast offers a good variety of food and the service was quick and friendy. I will stay at Sun Palace again :-)

We stayed in this luxurious hotel for 2 weeks in the summer and had a pleasant time. The beds were large and very comfortable (i.e. most beds in China are small and firm). The hotel is nicely kept and fairly well maintained with the exception of the refrigerator which would not get cold. Most of the staff knows enough English and everyone helpful. In fact, I thought the the hotel was over staffed because there are people everywhere to help you (e.g. valet, elevator man, front desk, bar, restaurant, etc). The amenities are great: workout room, long swimming pool where you can actually do laps, fast and Free Internet access, a large flat screen TV with some English speaking stations and HBO which the kids loved.

The location of the hotel was somewhat isolated as the restaurants and stores were 15 min walk away. The hotel did have a great restaurant but with Western prices. Next to the hotel was a Costa Coffee shop and a upscale shopping mall. The shopping mall did have a grocery store in the basement so that was a great place to pick up some drinks and snacks. The nearest metro stop was 15 minutes walk but there always seemed to be plenty of taxi's waiting in the queue to take you anywhere in the city.

If I came to Beijing again I would probably choose a hotel that is closer the action and where there are more restaurants that are in walking distance from. All in all it was a good hotel and we were happy with our choice.

The place is very well-know by the taxi drivers and right outside the northeast 3rd Ring Road. However the transportation is bit difficult as the road is not good designed and takes a long detour to get there. Good thing is it's always easy to get a cab from the hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room is big and comfortable. Nice bed and soft beddings which gave me two well-rested nights. I'm not sure but I got a call from reception that my neighbor room complained my TV was too loud... but I mean, really? Is the wall that thin? anyways... The hotel is a good choice for business trip, as the room rate (comparatively) lower than the same brand and other similar ones at other locations.

Crowne Plaza is one of my preferred hotels if i go on a business trip. Stayed here for a convention that took place on the second floor. Also this time I received an upgrade as an IHG Platinum member at check-in. Check-in took longer than average but staff was very friendly. Rooms are a little outdated (dirty carpet - room 1809) but housekeeping are doing a great job so that you forget about it. Breakfast is like crowne plaza standards and service is top : coffees (incl great cappuccino's without extra fee) are served within 2 minutes. Fruit selection is limited.
Staff is great - including the support we received from the employees to get our stuff from the truck to the convention area, but also the staff in the restaurant and lobby (incl the elevator boy!) area who are always eager to help you or approaching you with a personal touch.
WIFI available throughout the whole hotel with good connectivity.
For those people who like shopping there is a nice brand new shopping mall connected to it.
Maybe not the best location for Beijing tourists but excellent for business people.
TIP : Time to airport by taxi takes about 30-40 minutes but traffic can be very busy starting already early in the morning! Make sure you leave on time to catch your international flight home!
Will stay there again!
