First of all, I love Shangri-La hotels and I booked this hotel almost blindly when we decided to travel to Beijing.
The hotel location is inconvenient and is walking distance to basically: nothing! Guess that a hotel like the Hilton would be a better bet when it comes to location.
Nevertheless, the room is fine, the amenities complete. Our reception was warm. The staff was waiting for us outside the hotel, had toys for the kids and we were check-in in our room. No queues, which is what you want after a long flight.
Extra beds for the kids were in the room, welcome cakes, everything!
The breakfast buffet is good and complete and continuously replenished. The staff is somewhat inefficient though. Requests often need to be made twice. But they are friendly.
Housekeeping and staff are very responsive to requests (other than at the breakfast).
Room service is expensive compared to what good restaurants charge outside. 140 RMB for a sandwich (25 US$) is a little crazy.
If I come back to Beijing I would take another hotel for tourism purposes, only because of its location. For any other purpose: this is a very good hotel.
