We were lucky enough to be staying at this hotel on one the few days in Beijing that was actually clear (although it only lasted a few hours) the views were great. All the rooms and all the floors have great views, although my favourite view was of the CCTV tower from the gym.
The hotel was very nice and the rooms well presented with good standards. The restaurant was also very nice (although very pricey so not very busy, and there are 1000's of excellent restaurants in Beijing so I would recommend venturing out).
If you are 'nervous' about venturing out like a few people I talked to were, don t be, Beijing is probably one of the safest cities in the world. Just be patient and acknowledge that in Beijing taxi drivers do not have to take any type of test to become taxi drivers, so very many do not have a clue where anything is. Even if you can speak Mandarin it is unlikely you will know the location all the time, so I suggest either going to a well known landmark near where you are trying to go and the walking or phoning the place you are going to ask for directions for the driver - If you are lucky enough to get a driver who knows Beijing the app Beijing Taxi Translator is quite good.
Back to the hotel. The rooms are great, the bar and restaurant are very nice (though note you can still smoke inside in Beijing) and the Gym and Pool area were fantastcic.
Overall the staff were also very good.
