We stayed at the Jianguo from 11/5 - 11/9 as it is quite convenient to the American consulate. We stayed on the 12th floor. The room was clean and bathroom modern and water hot. The bed was quite hard but still a very nice mattress. Cable TV was what I would expect from this class of hotel. The buffet breakfast was good but not as great of selection as I have been used to at previous comparable hotels in China. The service was good and amenities mimicked a 4 start hotel i.e., business center. The location is near the Josco where you can buy your dinner quite cheap if your spouse happens to speak mandarin or you point well in chinese. We liked the area up until the point the 2010 Asia games started and then security became too much at the hotel as it is close to the stadium/arena. The Jianguo really needs to work on how to treat people when trying to impose airport like security when entering the hotel. Since we were in and out of the hotel throughout the day this became painful. And the 2 hour lockdown on 11/7 that was forced upon us did not sit well with me as they threatened to enter our room and go through all of luggage including the room safe. As a result I started carrying everything on my person which kind of defeats the purpose of having a hotel safe. Fortunately we were able to move out of the area to the Victory hotel which is way more American friendly and though much older has charm. Though I will still recommend the hotel to other travelers as it is a good hotel it left a bad taste in my mouth and nothing will ever change that and I won't stay there again.
