“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

Hotel was located on the north end of the Wangfujing strip, which means it steps away from street markets, food vendors and shopping in general. Such a great atmosphere there!

On a nice day, easy walking distance to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City/The Palace Museum.

Hotel in-room wifi was a bit expensive (still shocked that it's not free!), but I just spend time in the lounge in the lobby and used the wifi available there.

Fitness room was disappointing and rooms were a bit small.

We were in Beijing for 3 days and nights and stayed at this hotel. The hotel was beautiful, all decorated for Christmas and made us feel at home. The rooms were spacious and very clean and was in a great tourist location,including shopping and malls. The staff was very respectful and charming, all spoke English. We had a quide which made transportation around the city much easier. Driving is a bit hectic to say the least. We used Akorn Destination Management tour service which was absolutely wonderful. All plans went like clockwork. Our guide, Nancy was extremely knowledgeable fun, spoke English very well and was with us at all times, even back to the airport until we went through immigration. Thankfully, the hotel had several restaurants and served a complementary breakfast each morning before the guide showed up. The food was local as well as "western", ie, typical American fare. China is not known for food but we did fine. Remember, never drink the water, even in the best hotels, including brushing you teeth _use bottled water!! The better hotels will provide bottled water for free and replace it in your rooms. The polution is terrible so if anyone has respiratory problems, I would suggest you get face masks (available at Amazon) to protect you lungs. Be sure to use charcoal filter masks - surgical masks are useless. Needless to say, the Great Wall was breathtaking.

Room Tip: Streets are a bit noisy so ask for a quiet rooom, preferably higher up.

I stayed here for a few nights on my own as part of my holiday.

I found the hotel was very nice and comfortable and safe. It was in a perfect location near a big street with shopping on either side and also near some food/night markets.

It was close to tourist attractions and the HuTong area around the lake with all the bars and restaurants.

My only bad comment would be the furniture in the room was a little outdated, the sink in the bathroom made a really loud gurgling noise so I had to make sure the sink was closed, and for the first 2 days the room smelt of smoke (maybe someone was smoking in the room above or something..)

Be cautious of the very firm beds in china...They do offer a range of different pillows though

The room service was good at this hotel and so was the breakfast. Probably not as cheap as i had expected though.

I recommend staying at this hotel if you like comfort but want to be around some new and some traditional areas of Beijing.

The strength of the hotel is it location and staff. I stayed here twice on my recent trip to Beijing, once when I arrived to get over jet lag, and again when I returned to Beijing prior to departure. This is an excellent choice for a first time visitor to Beijing, as it is at the beginning of the shopping area along Wangfujing and an intercity neighborhood. Down Wangfujing are restaurants (the Muslim hot pot restaurant near McDonald's is great) and local food stalls, a nightly exercise/dancercise a the church one block from the hotel, and a local market 4 block away. At the end of the shopping area you take a right to go to the Forbidden City. A word of warning, check the web for the common Beijing tourist scams. I was approached for 6 of the 10 scams while walking down Wangfujing. The concierge staff is excellent. They arranged tours, mailed packages, helped finding a pharmacy and helped with directions. They a great resource for any time visitor. .

The Crowne Plaza is located adjacent to the shopping quarter Wangfujing in Beijing. Its location is great but the first impression of the hotel was so-so, because of the facility that is a bit outdated. It is still clean, with a comfortable bed, but nothing fancy, or standing out like other newly built hotels in China. Four weeks after my return from our trip to China, only thing I can remember about the hotel is their friendly hotel-staff and their helping hands. The service they provided to us was truly 5-star. Here is the story: my daughter joined us in Beijing from Washington DC, and unfortunately United airline forgot to send her check-in luggage with her flight. Since her last leg of flights was with Air China from Tokyo, it was Air China's responsibility to retrieve her luggage from DC. Unbelievably, Air China told her to go to the international airport to pick-up the luggage when it arrives because it was not their fault. We talked to the hotel concierge about our problem, and the manager on duty assured us that we can go to visit the Great Wall as per our original plan, and he was going to take care of the luggage problem for us. Actually he or his staff did a great job, they called Air China Luggage service many times during the day, and arranged to get the missing luggage sent to our hotel late in that evening. I was, and I am still impressed by their service.

Its an ok 4 star hotel, it probably needs a bit of an update but acceptable for hotels in China. Breakfast was very good including some good coffee/expresso. For a bit more money, I would stay at newer hotels like Grand Hyatt
