Stayed in one of the "Premier" rooms, 10th floor, right in the middle. Room overlooked the plaza, and sitting at night looking at the nice fountains and light, and the busy street in the background, was great, with an elevated, "city lights" feeling. Room is recently renovated and top luxury throughout, with a somewhat modern and understated design, really liked it. Luxury touches abound, including a plush bathrobe, slippers, another kimono-like robe, three gorgeous Asian pears in a bowl, lint brush for the clothes, complimentary shoe shine, etc. Such hotels are highly addictive. Service is also excellent. Location is hard to beat, walking distance to the Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, posh mall right next to the hotel, and lively back streets with lots of food and trinkets right behind hotel.
Cons: expensive, room with tax was about $300/night, this is Manhattan territory. Sushi dinner with 7 nigiri pieces, one roll, and mineral water was $60. Similar quality food for lunch next day at a conveyer belt place in the mall next door was less than $20. Food at the hotel breakfast buffet was plentiful and good but not great (included in my room price for my deal but otherwise think $40.)
Tips: make sure you stay in the renovated rooms. Mall next door has a TON of places to eat on the lower floor, some as cheap as $5 for a ramen bowl for lunch.
