I stayed at this hotel for four days recently as part of a Viking River Cruises package. Overall, the experience was excellent in almost every respect. First of all, service at the front desk was friendly and helpful. One is always greeted upon returning to the hotel. The lobby/restaurant is light and airy. The breakfast buffet was simply the best that I have ever had -- a wide selection of well-prepared food (except perhaps the waffles). A dinner buffet also exceeded expectations. Rooms were large, with well equipped baths and comfortable beds. The hotel looks out on an attractive park and adjoins an upscale shopping mall that might be of interest to visitors. As for traveling in Beijing, the expectation is that guests normally take cabs as the hotel is a brisk fifteen-minute walk to the nearest subway station. The bell boys, however, provided clear and accurate directions and information regarding its use. While I did not use the swimming pool, another guest was dismayed that the hotel enforced a government rule concerning men wearing bathing caps. Overall, this is one of the best hotels I have stayed in.
