The St. Regis is an excellent choice for any stay in Beijing. Myself and a colleague each booked a Diplomat room and were extremely pleased. The rooms were very large and had large closets and bathrooms. We stayed four nights for a trade show.
The breakfast buffet is on par with the best buffets I have ever seen in Las Vegas hotels. The choices are extensive for both Asian and Western cuisine. The dining room itself is exquisite and with beautiful views. We did not eat in any of the other dining outlets in the hotel.
The evening happy hour was also a welcome retreat every evening. They have a full range of draught beers and cocktails, all complimentary.
Morning wake up calls with complimentary French press coffee (a St. Regis chain signature) is also a treat.
The fitness facility is top notch as is the indoor swimming pool. I also recommend bowling a few frames at the private bowling alley which they will be more than happy to open for you. You can also order room service in the bowling alley.
The doormen were very helpful in chasing down taxis in the rain an communicating our destinations.
We hired the hotel limousine (a stretch Audi A6) to take us to the great wall at Jinshanling and then we hiked to Simatai. I believe it was about $400 USD and was a 9-10 hour excursion…worth every penny. You could probably do this for much less with a minivan or taxi, but we liked the convenience and piece of mind of having a driver’s cell phone number in an emergency.
The location is great for Tienanmen and other sights…a 30 minute walk or $3 cab ride.
There is an excellent local spa chain across the street...Oriental Taipan Spa which is a legitamate spa with great staff. 90 Minute foot massage for $25 is amazing.
The few negative comments I have read about this hotel seem to be comparing it to other St. Regis properties such as New York or San Francisco. Keep in mind that those properties are quadruple the price of Beijing but have similar amenities. Book through an international travel website to save at least 25% off their website prices.
