As good as it gets in Beijing.
Great pool area, good western restaurant, caring staff, excellent room and great top floor bar. Also you can sign at other Shang hotels in the vicinity like Kerry etc. where Centro Bar is - ask for the old China hand Jason at this place for the scoop as to whats happening around town. Good airport meet and greet service - you are met at the gate straight off the plane. Quite a few ex-pats working here so few language problems.
