I really loved this hotel. Although some people may feel this location is not convenient- Beijing is so large I am unsure any other spot would have been more convenient. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. We liked all of the great space to put away or toiletries in the bathroom an the amenities in the room.Our only pet peeves were that we wish they had an outlet with a mirror so that multiple people could blow dry their hair instead of just one with the hook up in the desk and that there was no chocolate at turn down. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast served overlooking the very lovely garden area. Especially appreciated the made to order Beijing pancakes and smoothies. All of the staff was very nice and tried to be helpful despite our language barriers. We found the doormen and gym/pool attendants extremely attentive. Taxis no problem from the hotel but a little difficult trying to return to this location.
I cannot say enough about he gym/pool area. The gym was well appointed with towels, water, antibacterial wipes,etc. The pool was also maintained well and easily accommodated 4 lap swimmers. The nicest feature was the locker room which was a spa like oasis, containing steam, sauna, slate bottomed whirlpool, showers and rubber sandals, robes, towels and toiletries. It was so nice that I chose to get ready in the morning in that area leaving my friend to our room to herself. The staff was also very kind an helpful.
Highly recommend this hotel!
