I stayed here on vacation with my family, but I can see how the hotel would be even better for business travelers, with a generous-sized work desk, better-than-average internet speeds, and a convenient location near the central business district. We were upgraded to a suite, which included a large living room and an absolutely gigantic bathroom. The bathtub alone was big enough for 4-6 people at the same time (not that we tried to do that!), and there was a separate "rain forest"-style shower.
I agree with those who say that this hotel has service issues -- especially in the China Grill restaurant, where the staff seems clueless and surprisingly unfriendly. (And the food service in the "Lounge" restaurant was rather slow.) Nevertheless, the rooms and facilities at the hotel are so spectacular that I believe they outweigh the few service problems that exist in the restaurants. In addition, most of the front desk and bell staff were friendly and competent.
The fitness center is well-equipped, and the indoor lap pool -- bookended by two large jacuzzis -- was beautiful. Actually, there is a second, even better-equipped fitness center in the "Park Life" complex on the lower floors, and the lap pool there is also quite nice. In both facilities, there was only one other person using the fitness center when we were there, and no one else in the pool, so it almost felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.
The interesting thing about the rooms in this hotel is that photos really do not do them justice. In the hotel website photos, the rooms look a lot smaller and more cramped than they actually are. You really need to see them in person to understand how attractive and well-designed they are.
Earlier in our China trip, we stayed at the Grand Hyatt Beijing, which is also an excellent hotel (in some ways, more family-friendly and more convenient to tourist stops like Tiananmen and the Forbidden City). That hotel is so big and crowded, however, that it often felt like a zoo in comparison to the serene environment of the Park Hyatt. In the future, the Park will be our first choice in Beijing, as long as it is not much more expensive than the other choices!
