Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing
Ranked #73 of 6,606 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stayed here 3 nights during our tour of China. All of the employees were very friendly. They have an Exchange machine so if you have US dollars you can trade them for yuan. The rooms are nice, but a little dated. This hotel had the best breakfast out of all the other ones we stayed in. They have Eastern and Western selection - we loved the bacon there. They have a fantastic pastry chef - lots of goodies and wonderful croissants.
Our beds were hard, but housekeeping brought up extra blankets for us to pad our mattresses. The location is really close to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden city. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Property is in a central location, shops, banks, restaurants that is the absolute best thing about this hotel. Lobby is shared with a restaurant that throws off the usual "Asian" fare smells that are locked into the hallways. No wi-fi, marginal comfort nothing special for $140 USD a night.....
old furnishing, room faced an alley, windows did not open to get the smell out....staff was OK.....
My opinion for that money there are better options and my overall experience with Crown Plaza overall is there is better value elsewhere. Just a note I used PriceLine the Negotiator feature and this hotel was chosen and I could not cancel..lesson learned...use travel sites for research then call the property directly they often meet internet prices or better yet visit the property before committing....

Room Tip: Find better value at other properties...the only good about this Crown is its location...but a bad v...

We stayed here for 5 days, as a local recommended it to us. Very Nice hotel. Beds were very comfortable and clean. Room was up to par and modern, and of decent size. Rest room was clean -very important , as I traveled with my wife and 2 daughters. Air conditioning controls on the wall worked well. Had free use of robes and slippers. Had coffee maker and free use of cups, glasses and utensils. Had a mini bar fridge. They supplied a couple of 350ml mineral water bottles daily, as the tap is not potable.
Service was very good too. Although they missed cleaning our used cups 1 time and I had to do that myself to make my cup of coffee when I would get in in the afternoon. They were quick in delivering extra towels, a bucket of ice, or a knife, etc. when I called for them. English was spoken well, which made everything easier .
Lobby was huge. Breakfast area was also very adequate- with the buffet breakfast well stocked and above average. Front desk and concierge also very professional. You may weigh your luggages at the concierge if needed. There is also a currency exchange machine at the lobby- very convenient and rates are good. I recommend changing $400 at at time (the maximum amount at a time), as there is a set service commission charge wether you change $100 or $400.
There is free wifi at the lobby and a small fee if you want it in your room. There is free use of the pool and sauna on the 9th floor which closes at 10pm, if you find the time.
Very close to the Wangfujing shopping area and mall. The St Joseph church close by turns into a dancing area for locals at night. Worth a try to join in the line dance. The end of Wangfujing St is where the night food market is located. You can try and eat sea horses, scorpions, or starfish if you dare. Sugar coated fruits are also for sale.
Would I recommend the hotel. Yes definitely.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in October 2012, halfway through Golden Week in Beijing. The location was handy to the shopping areas of Beijing. Buffet breakfast was good in the large lobby area, though we were not impressed with Chinese restaurant on the mezzanine level. Supermarket down the road, and McDonald's nearby were handy.

Being on Wangfujing Street, this is ideally placed to be right in the middle of the popular tourist area. Only 15 minute walk from Tianamen Square and the Forbidden Palace.
Hotel was spacious and clean - we were very pleased with our Club room. Usual advantages of booking Club - breakfast included and evening happy hour exclusively in the Club Lounge.
Our first Crowne Plaza hotel - suitably impressed.
Make sure you visit the night market nearby and see what some people will eat!
The paved area in front of St.Joseph's cathedral just down the road seemed to be the evening meeting point for all sorts of dancing groups - really nice.

Hi there

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for 7 nights from around mid September 2012. Our main impressions were that this is a large and well run Hotel. On the negative side our Hotel room decor was a little worn and tired, but of a reasonable size, clean, and our bed comfortable.

The air-conditining I would describe as adequate if the temperature control was set to its lowest rating and left on for a good while...no problems really and we slept fine.

The breakfast buffet which was included in the price we paid was good and very varied. We also tried dinner there a couple of times too, once in their main restaraunt (buffet), and then in the upstairs Chinese restaurant. We preferred the Chinese restaurant, their Peking duck not bad!

What we liked the most was the ever attentive service (almost too much sometimes) provided by all staff. In particular we well remember the young chinese girls who looked after our needs in the main lounge before we went to dinner. They were professional and friendly and we got on great. A lovely young girl from Hunan impressed me the most with her friendly and well mannered service. She told us that she was a trainee, and was at the hotel to learn her craft.

Would we go back there again? Yes we would.

Why...for the service and the feeling of serenity, and the comfortable haven that this hotel is, a place to retreat to from the hustle and bustle of an ever busy Beijing.

Yours sincerely

Room Tip: Try to learn a little Chinese and be respectfull of the culture.
