The doormen were the best I've ever met. They greeted everyone who walk through their doors and are very, very knowledgeable. They gave very good advise on where to go and how to get there, all these, even without us asking.
The room was a surprise to us. From some of the travelers' photos, I was expecting slightly run-down furniture. But it was not. The room was clean and every single one of their staff was courteous. They greeted us when they saw us at the corridor and their smiles seems to be planted on their faces permanently :)
Location-wise, I have not much complain, only that it is quite a distance to walk to the subway stations especially when you have been out walking the whole day, I'll rather cab back (the cab fares are quite cheap too - airport to the hotel, cost us around RMB80 - RMB100). The hotel is somewhat in the middle of 2 subway stations : Wangfujing Station - turn left at the hotel entrance and turn left again at Wangfujing Road. Walk all the way to the end, and you'll see the sign on the right. Dengshikou Station - turn right at the hotel, cross the road at the traffic light junction and cross again to the left. The station entrance is behind Regent Hotel.
But do be aware that the Forbidden City / Tiananmen Square is a 'short 20 minutes walk away', according to the locals. It took us 30 minutes. We tried to get a cab back to the hotel, but could not get one, as most of the drivers said they are not sure where the hotel is. My guess is that the distance is too near for them, that's why they refuse to take us.
Plenty to eat around the hotel and also shop.
Can't comment on the hotel's other facilities, as I did not use them.
