The hotel is walking distance from Forbidden City, Tieneman Square, and the shopping street. Service is excellent, with the concierge greeting me by my name. I stayed in the Business, Inc. room, which is a suite with a living room and bedroom.
Pros: Large room, great service, good location, great breakfast, clean and modern.
Cons: Heating/air cond didn't work well in my room, breakfast super expensive (like $30 usd per person), gym could use more weight equipment, cabs do not like to take you to this hotel because of traffic on street.
Tip - if you are going to visit the great wall, do not do a tour group. The tour group will take you to jade factories and/or silk factories to earn a commission. Take a private cab to the wall. Yes, it is more expensive, but you will not waste half a day going to places you do not want to visit.
