This is a good hotel, very large with hundreds of rooms. It is not too far from the Forbidden City which you can reach on foot (15-20 minute walk). There is also a cash machine at Standard Chartered Bank just opposite the hotel if you need to withdraw cash.
The rooms are quite standard, nicely decorated, and the public areas of the hotel look very appealing, tastefully decorated. Breakfast was good with a huge choice of cooked and uncooked food, including different types of bread, cereal, jam, cheese, croissants, and more.
The swimming pool was a real treat as it wasn't your usual boring rectangular pool, but one built to an odd, swirling shape and set in an oasis type surrounding with palm trees and exotic vegetation, so it was like swimming in the middle of a jungle, with imitation rocks and artificial cliffs and waterfalls right next to you.
The spa area is spacious and clean with plenty of room to change and put your clothes in the locker. Men and women each have separate spa facilities, so you don't need to worry about being seen naked here. The spa even has a little machine for drying your swimming trunks. Within the men's spa, there is a sauna and deep basin pool to relax in, all with soothing background music.
This is a typically good 5-star Beijing hotel, and I enjoyed my time there, especially the spa.
