I just wrote a long review of my stay, only to click submit, have my VPN disconnect, and the review lost. Oh how I hate the great firewall of China…
My girlfriend and I just checked out of the hotel. We stayed here for 6 nights on a “staycation” – we live in a very Chinese area of Beijing and rather than go somewhere for October Holiday, we thought it would be fun to stay in a nice hotel in a different part of the city.
The JW Marriott was a perfect choice. Our hotel room was fantastic – I booked a very cheap rate and was expecting the worst room, however I was blown away by how nice the room was, something I soon learned was an important aspect of a staycation. Ample work room, remote control window shades, large tv, huge bathroom with a huge window looking into the bedroom (with remote control blinds again). Nice view onto Shin Kong Place. We had room service every day, which was extremely pricy (especially for Beijing standards) but always delicious.
Everyone was super friendly at the hotel. The only downside was that the concierge was just another hotel employee; they weren’t from nor do the intimately know the city of Beijing… I knew a lot more than them, but that’s probably because they are just hired to fill the position just like front desk (as is the way in China). We gave up trying to use them for research and instead if we needed to print directions out, we’d goto the concierge.
The Loong Bar was really nice as was Nobu, although that Nobu is like 7-10 times more expensive than any other Nobu I’ve been to in the world (it was also entirely empty every night we walked past it… it’s really just a great place to grab dessert).
The hotel is a little outside of the city and in a super posh area – don’t expect to be surrounded by rich Chinese culture here! It’s nothing but western establishments really… but that’s what we wanted on our staycation, so that was awesome. The subway is a 5 minute walk away though, so it’s easy to get anywhere in the city from there.
Overall we loved the property and it was everything we wanted. Would definitely stay there again, however if I wanted to be in the city center I wouldn’t choose this hotel.
Hope that sums up all of my thoughts that are lost thanks to China and the internet…. You’d think I’d be used to this by now! Thankfully Gmail auto-saves your drafts; I wish Tripadvisor did the same ;)
