Beijing Marriott Hotel City Wall
Ranked #32 of 6,568 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed November 20, 2010

This hotel offers a great location right next to the Beijing Railway Station overlooking the Old City Wall Park. There is a laundry nearby (across from the City Wall Park), fast food near the Beijing Railway Station, and shopping. It is also within walking distance of Wangfujiang, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Silk Market, and the subway station.
The hotel staff is excellent and willing to help with almost anything you may need. Currency exchange is available in the lobby and the rates are as good or better than the airport. Be careful: if your bills are marked, torn or defaced, they will not take them.
Internet service is slow and expensive. I paid $100 RMB per day ($14.75 USD) which is outrageous, but if you have to have a connection, it is available. Room service is good but expect to pay. In fact, the delivery boy asked me to tip him in US dollars. Seems like the Beijing Olympics created a sense of entitlement in Chinese workers that can be very offensive since they do not connect tips with service. Tipping is NOT customary in China, so skip it ---- saving those who come after you the pain of this archaic practice.
Taxi drivers are summoned by the doorman who will be happy to tell the drive your destination. Ask the concierge what you should expect to pay for the ride so that you don't wind up taking the scenic route. Keep your receipt and if you are overcharged, have the concierge call the company to get you a refund of the overcharge.
I didn't eat in the restaurants, so can't comment on them.
The rooms are clean, well kept, and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and spacious, stocked well with water (DON'T drink the tap!!), shampoo, lotion, etc. There is also a scale, iron, and safe available. The IPOD charger/dock is a nice touch and I used it regularly. There are plenty of pillows and blankets and the desk area is sufficient to work.
This is the ONLY place I stay while in Beijing and I return frequently.

Nice hotel, situated right next to the central Beijing Railway Station. Although in the middle of a very busy part of the city, the hotel is quiet and guarantees a good rest. It comes with all the comfort a traveler is used to from Marriott. Definitely worth staying. I took the airport shuttle bus from the airport to the train station; the hotel then is in walking distance (although taking a taxi to and from the airport is not a bad idea).

From the moment we checked in until the moment we left we felt pampered. This was a top-notch hotel. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. A mix of Western and Eastern options with European coffees. Our room was fabulous, pristine, spacious and plush. I highly reccommend this to any traveller.

We stayed at Marriott Beijing City Wall in Oct on the executive level, directly across from the lounge. Our room was large with a nice view of the city. We had twin King Size beds in our room, and still had plenty of empty space around the room. I have never been in a hotel that had 2 king size beds before in a standard room. So you can imagine the size of this room.

The hotel is large. The biggest outside the U.S. But we found no problems with anything. The only place that was ever crowded was the lobby when all the tours would congregate in the morning.

The food and drink options in the lounge at this hotel were truly amazing compared to what you get at a typical Marriott in th U.S. There were at least 6 different hot Hors d'oeuvres that changed daily. These were not the greasy, salty fried bar food things you typically get. They were Hors d'oeuvres you would typically order at a good restaurant. They were prepared by one of the restaurants at the hotel. In addition there was a chef in the lounge who would make individual hot items. Breakfasts in the lounge were just as good. Again with our own chef to make omlettes.

We walked from the hotel to Forbidden City. So anyone who tells you this hotel is too far out from the city center is incorrect. It is a long walk, but you get to see the sights along the way. The nearest metro is 2 long blocks away, about 8 min walk at a slow pace.

We also walked from the hotel to Wal Mart, the opposite direction of Forbidden City.

The Marriott Beijing City Wall is a top-flight 5 Star hotel in the heart of the city. The lobby is spacious and immaculate, the staff goes out of their way to see that your are well taken care of and the restaurants and bar offer a wide array of choices. I have stayed here several times over the summer and fall and have yet to have even a single negative experience. The room are incredible with walk-in showers, a mini firdge, coffee and tea service, flat screen HDTVs with optional hookups to attach your PC so you can watch your own DVD's or project your computer onto the television. The property is one block from the Beijing train station and near two subway terminals making getting around the city or the country very easy. If you are in a hurry the doorman can summon a cab for you and the taxi fares are very reasonable -- about RMB 15 ($2.50) to the Pearl Market from the hotel. I would recommend this property to anyone who plans to travel to Beijing.

I stayed in this hotel for a week while attending a conference in Beijing. They were right that the hotel location is just a little bit awkward. On the map, it isn't that far away from most places of interest from Tiananmen square or Wangfujing but to get to and from the hotel to these places invariably involve a circuitous route just to head in the right direction. I suspect this may not be entirely due to the location of the hotel though as I face similar problems getting from other locations as well. Anyway, can fares are so cheap that it matters little despite the perceived increased mileage. fares from hotel to wangfujing is about 16 CNY. To and from airport is about 90-100 CNY. Closest tube station is JianGuoMen station which is about 10 minutes walk away. 2 CNY card gets you anywhere on the network. Very doable if you don't mind squeezing a little (it will be a squeeze at ANY time, not just rush hour)).

Room on the executive level is to be recommended. Not large by american standards but well adorned. flat screen TV with DVD player. comfortable marriott standard beds, nothing to complain about. The toilet/bath is divided from the main quarters by a large glass with wooden venetian blinds for the shy types.

Internet is free if using the wired connection. You just plug it in and a counter of sorts start counting backwards from 4 hours. If you are STILL on the net, you can just refresh and get another 4 hours.

Breakfast is not explicitly included in the room rates but you have access to the executive lounge on the 16th level where you have a fairly large spread in the morning, Hors 'doves are served from 1730hrs onwards and desserts from 1930hrs onwards. dirnks are served from 1730hrs onwards till 2100hrs. soft drinks are available round the clock. all in all quite worth the rates they are charging you...

An excellent hotel and well up to the Marriott brand anywhere; and it really is adjacent to the old city wall in fact it is the surround of the entrance drive in. We arrived after a late flight and we found all the normal staff on duty as you would expect during the day. Hotel staff all spoke excellent English and could not do enough to help.
Room extrmely spacious and immaculately clean. Modern bathroom with separate bath and shower. We were upgraded to the Executive floor at no extra charge for our 2 night stay.
The only problem we had was a room safe that would not reset (battery problem) and used the safe deposit box in the lobby at no charge until it was fixed while we were out the following morning.
Hotel very close to Tiananmen Square, a cheap taxi ride ( 3 minutes) and walkable.
Extremely extensive brekfast buffet with both European, Chinese and American brekfast items. Staff very attentive. Hotel highly recommended and would stay again without doubt!!
