We were greeted warmly by the front desk staff and upgraded to the Executive Suite upon giving my Marriott rewards number. I traveled with my 17 year old daughter so the two full sized beds were greatly appreciated. The room had plenty of space, with two cute leather chairs and a desk by the window. The bathroom was a nice size as well and included a tub separate from the shower stall (which has two shower heads with mega water pressure) and in-wall speakers that allowed you to hear the tv in the room and you could view it through the window from the bathtub. Another cool bathroom feature was the electronic wooden blinds located over the bathtub. So, if you don't want to watch TV from the tub you could draw the blinds for privacy. There were nothing but hotels in the immediate area, but if you walk out of the hotel onto the main road, make a left and walk a few blocks down there is a railway station surrounded by small stores a small mall and fastfood restaurants galore. The subway was approximately four blocks away from the hotel, and the buffet breakfast was good but not great. Additionally, most of the staff spoke pretty good English and seemed eager to help when needed. This hotel and the Great Wall were the only highlights of my trip to Beijing. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
