My wife and I stayed here 2 separate nights in November. Picked because it was rated #1 hotel in China...quite the reputation but it delivers!!!
Location was fine for us as we were not planning on doing a lot of sightseeing. (We have been to Beijing multiple times) Just wanted to eat some Peking duck and shopping.
Room was great. Clean, spacious and awesome bath toiletries! They come from a small fragrance boutique in New York called Le Labo. Bed was super comfy too.
On our second stay, we arrived very early (~ 7AM) and wanted to check-in. The front desk manager was very accommodative and even offered us free breakfast that morning! There was also a promotion to upgrade to Fairmont Gold, so we gave it a try. (You typically cannot upgrade to Gold) Fairmont Gold is okay but not worth paying the premium for unless it's a business expense.
Overall, a great hotel and certainly worthy of being #1 in China!
