I had a long layover in Beijing. I was on my way home, so picked the Fairmont to treat myself. I'm so glad I did. I booked a club room, and this was this perfect choice. From the airport pickup, private checkin, bag delivery, meals, and service in all regards, I was impressed. The club room staff were so helpful and pleasant- always with a smile. The food (tea, cocktail snacks, and breakfast) were perfect. I was super impressed with the variety at breakfast. The gym was one of the better hotel gyms. Lots of space, cold water, cold towels and great equipment that is cleaned regularly. My husband was craving a steak (after 3 weeks of Chinese), so we reserved at The Cut at hotel. We didn't expec much, but wow, did they impress! No, it's not cheap, but according to my husband, it was one of the best steaks he's ever had. They even catered to my veg, non dairy diet with great selections. I had dealt with the concierge pre-arrival to arrange for tickets to a show, and they were responsive and very helpful. Some have noted that the location isn't great; I disagree! There was plenty around for shopping, food, etc. and it's super close to the subway. Nor do I care so much about the lobby; the room (which we had booked a standard king, but received a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite) is what I feel is important. And our room, bed, pillows, bathroom, were all exactly what I needed, and then some! We booked a car to return to the airport. Upon arrival, we were met by a concierge that took care of our luggage, took care of checkin and even escorted us to security. Definitely not needed, but what a great touch. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I'm in Beijing.
