I stayed here on business, but was only in town for 18 hours due to flight times. Its only a 10 minute cab ride. 20 dollars covers it. Don't get taken by the fake drivers offering the ride for 200.
Very comfortable evening and enjoyable dinner. Lobby bar is fine and easy to get a small snack to fill me up after flying in from Shanghai. The club level is very good with some good food and open bar. Quite place and I enjoyed bringing my Chinese partners up for a beer and some quality time.The next morning a manager in the lobby area asked what my plans were. I explained I had a flight at 1300, but had to see the wall while here. He hooked me up with a private driver and a van and had them drive me to the wall for a 2 hour visit and then took me direct to the airport to catch my flight to Ningbo for 3 days then on to Hong Kong for 3 days. The staff went out of their way to help me accomplish seeing a view I will remember forever. I never would have accomplished seeing the wall without their help. I strongly recommend this hotel and asking for a private cab to take you to the wall. The ride was not expensive and I feel it hardly covered his gas expense. Thanks to the staff. A 3 week business trip may sound like fun to many, but this trip had 17 flights and 11 hotel rooms over a 20 day trip. Small things add up fast when your day is filled with meetings, flights and meals when you're not sure what you're eating and, at times, afraid to ask.
I look forward to returning to this hotel and spending an extra day so I can see more of the city.
