This was my first trip ever to China and was a bit apprehensive on what to expect from their hotels. This prompted my choice of Holiday Inn Express, a brand I am familiar with.
I arrived Beijing on the evening of October 11th. Check-in was quick and convenient since I was tired and wanted to take a shower.
Upon arrival in my room, I was speechless on how tidy and clean it was. Beautiful! The view from the 15th floor was nice too. There were over 8 English channels on the TV.
The water pressure in the shower was great.
I was so comfortable and at home in this hotel. The breakfast buffet was adequate and the staff were quite accommodating and helpful. One front desk staff, on my arrival night, was so helpful, she walked me halfway to point out a good restaurant for me, knowing it was my first visit to China.
The hotel is about 20 minute walk to Sanlitun shopping district, and restaurants litter the neighborhood, so you can have your pick.
I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Beijing as the neighborhood is upscale and quiet.
