This hotel badly, and I mean very badly needs a renovation. Just downright depressed to have had paid 5-star price for a 3-star experience. Despite the photos on the hotel website, please by all means don't even bother visiting the gym as the equipment is as ancient as they can be (probably at least 20 years old. to the hotel, please for yours and your guests sake, replace them already). Could probably name at least half a dozen cheaper hotels with better experience in Beijing (e.g. Holiday Inn Express). If it's any consolation, some of the staff were friendly, and they try their best.

The location of the hotel is more toward the modern Beijing than the old Beijing and it is not in the prime location such as Wangfujin or forbidden city.
But it is much easier to get around, as the other has much traffic to get in and out (one has to know Beijing is a over 20 millions city) It is very close to the embassy rows , but make no mistake the embassies are less attractive like what you see in Washington DC or other countries.
The hotel itself and the room is more than adequate.
One of the restaurants , Wangli, serves very good cuisine but I have not tired the others except daily breakfast that was more than adequate.
The gym is limited in facilities, but I love the swimming pool which is classy and classic.

Communication problems with hotel were annoying. Had a suite on club floor but they charged for everything in the club lounge including breakfast. Room was nice. Chinese restaurant was good once they found someone who spoke English. Hotel is not close to anything for tourists (i had business nearby). No cabs at hotel - u have to run out to the street and flag one down - sometimes the staff help you.

We are all alike -we want to have the very best with even more if possible - and not feel like you broke the bank (or budget) by doing so. In the heart of Beijing - central to most everything - is such a place. Is it a Ritz Carlton? You would think by the kindness, concern, and genuine desire to be as helpful it would be. No. Is it one of the super ornate, tall high rise competitors of the Ritz? No. It is a Renaissance Hotel. There are two - the Capital (nice place by no 'charm'), and the Renaissance location on Xiao Yun Road in the Chaoyang District. Its an older building well kept. It has an impressive lobby, elevators with personality, and rooms which are well appointed, spacious, and livable for short or longer periods of time. A hint - most of the 'big' hotel chains have the same sort of place. Like anything successful its differentiated by the people. Starting with the most visible General Manager of any Marriott property I know (who will seriously -not a feigned offer - to assist you outdoors in 30 degree weather with your luggage). You will see her all day and into the evening - speaking, guiding, suggesting - in sort - a 'tiny' power house of a coach. Now layer in front desk people - a great cup of tea while you check in is standard - and a walk to the elevator to say 'ok - now this is where you are going', and so many offers to be of assistance but NOT in an 'in your face' OR worse 'I'm saying this but could care less'. Perhaps the crowing jewel of this oasis in the middle of Beijing - the staff in the concierges' lounge tucked away on the 11th floor. During a recent four day 'marathon' business session this became 'the corporate office' - people in/out, phones, internet, PC to TV presentations, food, coffee breaks, airline reservations, 'where is this', 'do you know someone who ... " questions. You were always greeted with a smile and then results obtained with the poise and perfection of truly dedicated people. An example - one of the people had completed a shift, a boyfriend was there picking her up, and just moments before we learned a certain cell phone needed a new SIM. She calmly asked if I would mind if she went to a local store a block or so away: it was a Saturday night, and her date came to pick her up! Sweet - you bet. Yet - shrewd- from a business perspective these sorts of 'fill in blank' acts of support find you coming back again, and again, and again to one property - the Renaissance Hotel on Xiao Yun Road in the Chaoyang District (Ring 3). I didn't have the heart to take her up on it - but in a follow-up conversation I shared yet again how nice a gesture that was - she said could not leave that evening knowing 'one of her guests' could use some help. The professionalism of the people - the Club team specifically - is 2nd to none. The hotel has as super pool/gym room, and great coffee in the rooms (a personal favorite of mine). I've gone on too long for sure - this place is easy to like and return many times. A great find for reasonable prices in mid-Beijing. Try it - learn over and over - why 'people make all the difference'.

Room Tip: Pick higher room numbers per floor for best view ..

For my business it is a good location and as such covers up for some of the deficits. To start with, staff was at all times friendly and helpful, check-in quick and efficient. This was not the case, by the way, at my last intended stay, when the Hotel was overbooked and I could not get my room but needed to be transferred to another Hotel. That experience ended well after some initial "communication" problems.
Rooms at the Renaissance are standard, a bit tired and for someone coming from the equator, far too cold (and never became warm, despite turning the thermostat to the maximum. Internet connection was slow, but that may not solely be the problem if the Hotel. So in essence, a good price / value ratio, just hope that when I come again early in the new year, the room temperatures are more human.

While visiting in Beijing, I was hospitalized for four days with pneumonia. We had been upgraded to the club level when we were registered so this included our breakfast and evening snacks/drinks. The staff noticed that I wasn't there one morning and asked about me. When they found out I was going to be in the hospital beyond our reservation, they quickly contacted the front desk and made arrangements so my husband and adult daughter would not need to move to another room, even thought they were at full capacity. They definitely went above and beyond their duties.

Our triple room was quite roomy for us. Only complaint was that we couldn't get the room cool enough (the air conditioning was already turned off and heat turned on) so they provided us with a fan for our room.

They were very accommodating.
