“Location, location, location (and great staff)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The strength of the hotel is it location and staff. I stayed here twice on my recent trip to Beijing, once when I arrived to get over jet lag, and again when I returned to Beijing prior to departure. This is an excellent choice for a first time visitor to Beijing, as it is at the beginning of the shopping area along Wangfujing and an intercity neighborhood. Down Wangfujing are restaurants (the Muslim hot pot restaurant near McDonald's is great) and local food stalls, a nightly exercise/dancercise a the church one block from the hotel, and a local market 4 block away. At the end of the shopping area you take a right to go to the Forbidden City. A word of warning, check the web for the common Beijing tourist scams. I was approached for 6 of the 10 scams while walking down Wangfujing. The concierge staff is excellent. They arranged tours, mailed packages, helped finding a pharmacy and helped with directions. They a great resource for any time visitor. .

The Crowne Plaza is located adjacent to the shopping quarter Wangfujing in Beijing. Its location is great but the first impression of the hotel was so-so, because of the facility that is a bit outdated. It is still clean, with a comfortable bed, but nothing fancy, or standing out like other newly built hotels in China. Four weeks after my return from our trip to China, only thing I can remember about the hotel is their friendly hotel-staff and their helping hands. The service they provided to us was truly 5-star. Here is the story: my daughter joined us in Beijing from Washington DC, and unfortunately United airline forgot to send her check-in luggage with her flight. Since her last leg of flights was with Air China from Tokyo, it was Air China's responsibility to retrieve her luggage from DC. Unbelievably, Air China told her to go to the international airport to pick-up the luggage when it arrives because it was not their fault. We talked to the hotel concierge about our problem, and the manager on duty assured us that we can go to visit the Great Wall as per our original plan, and he was going to take care of the luggage problem for us. Actually he or his staff did a great job, they called Air China Luggage service many times during the day, and arranged to get the missing luggage sent to our hotel late in that evening. I was, and I am still impressed by their service.

Its an ok 4 star hotel, it probably needs a bit of an update but acceptable for hotels in China. Breakfast was very good including some good coffee/expresso. For a bit more money, I would stay at newer hotels like Grand Hyatt

Ive used different hotels in this group. IHG is suppose to be like peanut butter meaning you know what you getting. The rooms have everything a weary traveller would need. Its clean and neat but I feel at this hotel the rooms and beds were a bit small. This was the first time that I have actually seen actual single beds at an IHG hotel. But on the whole a nice hotel.

I was back in Beijing for business and decided to stay at the Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing. The hotel is centrally located in Beijing. Rooms were clean and tidy, especially the bathrooms. I'll go back next time I am in Beijing.

Wangfujing was the area I wanted to be in and this hotel is right in the middle of this. Service level was of course perfect. The lounge the come with club room had breakfast and evening buffet which was good and not to crowded. The lobby bar/area was also very nice (and big) and relaxing. The price for this hotel compared with others in the same area was good.

Wangfujing area with shopping malls, pedestrian street and restaurants is just outside the hotel. The forbidden city/palace museum, Jingshan Park, Tiananmen Square and Qianmen street is within walking distance.

Room Tip: I recomend club room. The lounge was nice with breakfast and evening buffet.
