“Luxury, service and convenience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Being my first visit to Beijing I chose this hotel because friends who do business in China recommended. It has a spectacular lobby, excellent service and beautiful suites. I stayed on the Horizon Club level which includes an all day lounge with full breakfast and a nice happy hour. If you eat breakfast this is a great place with cooked to order Western style food as well as local foods. You get what you pay for. At $400 per night I thought I received a good value for my room and I had a wonderful experience you wont get in an American hotel On Sunday afternoon there is a chamber concert in the lobby. Every evening there is some entertainment in the lobby. The hotel has several restaurants but I didn't eat there choosing to take the recommendation of my guide as we travelled about town. If you can I also recommend a car and driver. Hotel offers an airport pick up where a representative meets you as you get off the plane and whisks you through customs and in my case chauffeurs you into the city right to your room. Invaluable after flying for 15 hours.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite if you are staying more than a few days. Its worth it

Awesome hote. we will always stay here in the future and will look for the other shangri la properties on future trips as we.. for an american couple travelling to china for the first time, food was our major concern...no worries here, the food is simply outstanding. fresh, variety, great service. we will always stay at this hotel. also, location is excellent for walking when the beijing city streets are packed with traffic which is every day no matter where you are in beijing. Also, the world class shopping located within the property is simply amazing.

Was totally blown away by this hotel.
The entrance into the lobby was fantastic.
The rooms are very spacious along with great views.
Staff are friendly and English was spoken very well.
Below the hotel there is a shopping mall with all the top designer brands along with a subway station making it easy to travel around Beijing.
Had a fantastic stay at this hotel and the breakfast buffet was the best I've seen - so much to choose from.

The China World Hotel is a wonderful choice for those visiting Beijing. The hotel is top notch and rooms are spacious and very comfortable. All of the hotel restaurants were excellent and the lobby lounge is a great place for meetings over drinks. The location is perfect as well and it is only a few blocks walk to the Silk Market.

Room Tip: I highly recommend having a foot massage in the spa. It's a real treat.

Fantastic stay, staff attentive, beautiful view out window, excellent restaurant, best of four 5 star hotels we stayed at in China. Convenient mall downstairs, with top of the line (expensive) stores.
The lobby and flower displays were great.

Room Tip: As for window looking out the front.

Had a fantastic stay here while exploring Beijing again. The lobby is breathtaking, opulent Chinese decoration & fantastic flower displays. The place has a relaxing, calm vibe to it which is much appreciated after long flights & busy days. The staff are ever ready to help & gracious about it too, house keeping deserves a special mention. The rooms were fabulously clean & well stocked, never before has turndown service actually placed the slippers on my feet!
Decent selection of hotel restaurants, we mainly used the buffet & I had no complaints about food selection, diversity & quality.
All in all a great stay, can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

I spent 5 days in this superb hotel and I had a wonderful time. The lobby is impressive, and I was escorted to my suite where I was registered. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. My room had a beautiful view. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the service is impeccable. The location is great for business and leisure activities. China World Mall is on site at the bottom, it is not even necessary to venture out. The bar and restaurant area is fantastic and I particularly enjoyed the cocktails prepared by Bruce Johnson. I would choose this hotel again if I will visit again Beijing.
