We just had 6 great nights in the Ritz Carlton Beijing and would recommend to anyone. The staff is plentiful, polite and they are very welcoming. We stayed in the Club Floor on the 16t Floor which I definitely recommend if you can afford the higher price. The food was excellent and the staff was over the top helpful and gracious. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Additionally, within a block there is a the subway and a very large upscale shopping center. It is also a nice neighborhood to walk in the morning or at night if you want some relief from the room. I can't say enough about this hotel and it's people and service. Would recommend to all!
