We decided to book a 4 night stay at the Park Plaza during the Christmas period in Beijing and based our hotel choice on recommendations for this hotel on this site. The positive comments towards the hotel were spot on. The hotel did not disappoint. From warm surroundings to polite and courteous staff, the hotel was a wonderful base to a great trip. The subway station (Dengshikou Exit C) is within crawling distance of the hotel. It's ideally located, with the shopping district of Wangfujing and Forbidden City within walking distance. We had opted to upgrade our room at the time of booking to the club room which afforded us the breakfast buffet which was superb (an arrary of western and asian dishes to appeal to all tastes) and the complimentary beverages and snacks for early evening at their club lounge which was a great way to end your sightseeing day before dinner in the evening. The rooms were warm and cosy, clean and fresh, just perfect to our needs. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough to anyone wishing to stay in a 5 star hotel at affordable prices. Anyone can be a critic, but they would be hard pressed to find a fault with this hotel. Will look for the Park Plaza name more often when travelling around the world.
