Very big hotel, yet the service is very good, genuine and personal.
The location is convenient. Connected to the WTC of Beijing, attached to the China World Mall, restaurants and the subway. The hotel is itself is just a large size business hotel but the level of service I experienced was just of the charts. I opted for the airport pick-up and drop-off which was worth the money. A hotel associate was waiting for me at the gate and guided me through security and customs very quickly towards the car. Upon arrival at the hotel, I was greated by a hostess (Alba) who welcomed me personally at the curb and showed me my room and did a in-room check in. I was impressed by her warm and personal yet professional attitude.
The rooms are quite standard for any high-end business hotel, but the other services I used (roomservice, laundry etc) were very good. The breakfast buffet has good quality food (even the croissant were great which is rare in Asia in my experience), but due to a big IBM conference it was quite crowded so I had to wait a couple of minutes in line before I was seated. For me this was only a small disapointment compared to the rest of the experience.
Another flaw was the internet quality, the connection in the room was very instable and slow. Some websites like twitter, facebook etc were blocked, but that's standard in China and not due to the hotel.
Overall, just a 7/10 hotel but 9/10 service!
