We stayed three nights at the Capital Hotel in Beijing as part of a "China Sampler" Smartour in mid-May. We thought it was a really elegant hotel, with luxurious rooms and lobby. The lobby was adorned with lovely statuettes and a remarkable live fish tank.
The breakfast was very good with lots of choices for different tastes. They even had an omelet making station for persons wanting a more "western-syle" breakfast.
The location of the hotel seemed good, although we did not walk to any of the sights in Beijing. We went out for Peking Duck to a local restaurant, "Made in China," which was recommended in Frommers Guide to China. The restaurant was decorated in an interesting fashion, but the food was just OK.
Highlights in Beijing for us included the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and walking around a local park in the AM watching mainly local seniors doing Tai Chi, ballroom dancing, playing musical instruments or playing mah jongg.
Beijing was great and so was the hotel. We recommend it to fellow travelors.
