First, I'll confess that IHG is one of my favorite brands. This hotel did not disappoint. It's within a couple of blocks' walking distance from Olympic Park, which is a great place to spend an afternoon or evening.
The hotel also has a well stocked breakfast buffet with a wide array of Western and Chinese items, including cooked-to-order omelets, pancakes, French toast, pastries, hot and cold cereals, dumplings, and more.
The rooms are showing a bit of wear, but the beds were comfortable (not quite as hard as standard Chinese beds) and the views of Olympic Park were superior.
The staff speaks good English and was more than willing to assist with booking excursions.
The airport is about 30 minutes away.
