I, my wife and our adult daughter, stayed there from 10-15 to 10-18. We were traveling with a 55-person tour group and the hotel was packed. Still, we couldn't be more impressed. It is a newer hotel, a year old? The rooms are more than spacious, clean and well-appointed. Staff at the front desk were not supper efficient but the staff at their morning buffet area were more than helpful. We came away totally blown away by the buffet's quality and choices too. Just the breakfast buffet was worth half the room-rate, we thought.
We were troubled by the location at first. It is in a safe but no thrill busy residential/commerical area. You can forget about views and night life. However, we also found out that we could go to most popular places by taxi well within 40 yuan(about 6 USD).
We normally think of Holiday Inns in this country as dependentable budget-minded accomodations. In case of Deshengmen Holiday Inn, we were getting 4-star treatment with motel rates.
After Beijing we also went to Sozhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai. We had a hotel disaster in Shanghai(see my review on Shanghai's Hongqiao Airport Howard Johnson). My wife and I were in Beijing January this year. Our hotel at that time was quite OK but no comparison to this one. I hope the management can maintain the good qualities while improve on the staffing at the front desk. I also hope they will stop charing internet Wi-Fi service. In fact, we are planning our next year's China trip with this hotel in mind.
