I stayed at The Marco Polo Parkside for 10 days in March, 2008. Contrary to other hotels in China, I found this hotel to be fully deserving of its 5 star rating.
Located just 10 minutes walk from the Bird's Nest stadium and Olympic Park, it's understated elegance and charm were a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of downtown Beijing. The standard room I stayed in was spacious, elegant, and completely quiet. BBC and CNN were available on the large flat screen TV in my room, along with free internet.
Each morning, a splendid Western breakfast buffet was available alongside a traditional Chinese breakfast.. All in all, an excellent hotel which I hope to be visiting in the near future.
