stayed for just a night because of a cancelled flight from the Beijing capital airport. The room was huge with large comfortable bed, LCD, a large sofa, minibar with utensils, and a large executive office tables. The bathroom was likewise large with a separate tub and shower stall (has a built in seat where you can take a seat while taking a hot shower, center of the stall was elevated by a centimeter and water runs off in a moat surrounding the elevation - clever trick). The bathroom has a tub height to ceiling see through window towards the bedroom. A push of a button opens or closes metal blinds if you tend to favor more privacy.
We were able to have dinner but it was one hour before closing. There was indian, chinese, international and seafood sections but the carving station was already closed when we were eating and the drinks section were not being refilled anymore even though the restaurant was not technically closed yet. The staff were not that enthusiastic anymore as one might expect since it was less than one hour till closing but considering the crowne plaza name and that this was supposedly a higher end hotel, attitude and service could still improve.
The staff at the lobby and concierge were very accommodating and efficient though. We were able to check in and check out really fast considering we were 3 buses from an entire flight and we were sure not to miss the early morning bus back to the airport because of repeated reminders from check in and wake up calls. Since most of our staff was already checked in, we needed some supplies. The concierge wrote down the name and address of a large supermarket which also sells clothes has an optical shop nearby.
I understand that it is between the airport and the city center and considering that Beijing is huge, this may not be the ideal place to stay if you are a tourist. If you plan to visit a nearby place or have business to attend in the nearby vicinity, the hotel is a great option.
