This is some hotel. Wow! It is new, having opened just before the 2008 Olympics. And it is state-of -the-art in many ways. Believe me, you will not feel like you have just stayed in your ordinary hotel.
The location is extremely convenient for the subway which, after only a short time in Beijing, I concluded was the way to get around. Traffic in Beijing is beyond awful. While the subway can be crowded, at least you get where you're going. I far prefer that to the one-hour taxi ride to go five kilometers, which we endured on our arrival. Although the hotel is a fair distance from the Forbidden City (making walking to it out of the question), it is a quick subway ride way.
The hotel's rooms are marvelous. The room's layout is a bit weird, and I would not recommend staying with people who you know only casually. But it is incredibly spacious and comfortable, with great views. The amenities are superb, from the softness of the towels to the high-tech toilet. So, too, was the ultra-attentive service we received. Oh, and did I mention that our room was free, through the Hyatt's recent promotion?
The rest of the hotel is pretty much what it primarily intends to be: a hotel for business travellers on expense accounts. We were tourists, so we didn't use the hotel's various facilities and, if we had, they would not have come cheaply, I am sure. But there were plenty of food options a short distance away.
Anyone who stays here and is ambivalent about it must be crazy. It may be too avant-garde for some tastes, but it certainly isn't ordinary.
