The staff here went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. The Chief Concierge, Leon, personally walked me to the bakery my first morning, obtained dinner reservations for the best Peking Duck restaurant, researched the cooking class and made the arrangements for us. Jenny, Guest Relations Officer, greeted us by name each evening, knew where we had been, and offered her advice. Dirk made sure the cab driver knew exactly where to take us in the hutong. They explained how to take the Metro, which was a great accomplishment, but so valuable as traffic here in the worst I have experienced anywhere, ever. Cherry, in-house Grayline Tour consultant, set us up with a private tour that covered everything we wanted to see in one day, which we really enjoyed. Ask for Alice for your guide.
In Beijing, we were Americans with no Chinese language skills. English is the exception, and if spoken it is often not fluent. I hate organized tours, and the staff here helped us get around to gain the full experience, keeping us safe. Really funny when we left on our subway trip-proffering no less than 4 cards to be given to a cab driver in Chinese that said "please take me to the China World Hotel". Just in case.
Housekeeping very courteous, in spite of our later room departures. Rooms were immaculate, beds very comfortable, really great shower.
Sara (#18) gave a fabulous Chinese massage.
Annie in the lobby saved us a pastry tray for a later high tea. Lovely service.
Highly recommend this haven in Beijing.
