Everything was truly perfect during our overnight stay at the Ritz Carlton (Huamao), staying in a very well appointed suite. Very courteous, friendly and knowledgeable associates at reception upon check-In, very friendly housekeeping staff, attentive and gracious wait-staff in the buffet restaurant (featuring a very well appointed breakfast), well-trained gym attendants, not to mention friendly and professional parking attendants (which is quite rare in China), as we drove our car to the hotel. The hotel facilities are everything you can expect in luxurious properties, in a grand style (yet not overdone as it is often the case in this part of the world), the suite was very comfortable, lights and curtain switches easy to use and locate, great connectivity available to any possible electronic device (computer, iPhone...), and all in perfect working order. Internet connection was a little slow, but in line with Beijing's average connectivity at the moment. Gym is very well equipped with the latest from Technogym, and swimming pool is also perfect for lap swimmers. The only drawback would be Beijing's notorious heavy traffic which at peak times makes access to the hotel quite challenging. The property is however a great location when you conduct business in the Central Business District and Huamao areas, and is walking distance to a lots of great (luxury) shopping opportunities, including the famous Shin Kong Shopping Mall.
