We were here for a business trip in Beijing and stayed for three nights.
The hotel was nice and delivery a good service, however, the only thing we weren't so pleased with the hotel was for their parking situation.
We were having five people in total and the hotel won't even let us to pull the car in front of the hotel gate so we will have to all drag our own suitcases to the hotel, and of course, the doorman just stood there and watch us instead of helping.
The next day, we were having people to come to pick everyone up from the hotel, but again, no parking spots were available so we asked hotel if it's okay to just park on the street outside and if possible for them to watch the car for us for a little bit, but of course, denied in cold.
We were very surprised so we had to ask the general manager, and finally, he was able to find a spot for us, but that was a lot of troubles.
I am pleased with the services, room and the breakfast, but with what we had to go through with the parking, that really was a lot of troubles, especially to our clients and friends who were coming to meet us at the hotel with a car.
