The staff did a great job of picking us up at Airport in Private Car (was either a 7 Series or an A8). Upon arrival we were greeted at the entrance and taken directlyup to the Club Level without stopping at Reception. This was all very well done. There are awkward views from the hotel since Beijing is rather sketchy and VERY smoggy. The hotel is a few blocks walking distance to the Tiananman Square and the Forbidden City. Concierge set us up with a nice private tour to the Great Wall. (Next time, I would do some exploration on the different sections of The Wall.) The guide made a side trip to a Tea House where it was a bit uncomfortable with the hard sales pitch to buy their expensive tea. One day we took a cab to the Summer Palace and found another cab back. The cab drivers were honest and reliable.
Overall, I was very happy to have stayed there. It always seems like we are the most important guests they have. I love walking around and I loved this location and the overall value.
