Actually change my award reservation from the Conrad to the Hilton Wangfujing based on reviews and location. I was not disappointed in any way.
Late arrival made much later by road blocks causing my driver to arrive >1 hour late. Later I found out it was b/c of the "accident" in Tiananmen square earlier that day. Not the Hilton's fault.
On arrival greeted warmly and invited to the lounge where check in could be completed while I enjoyed a glass of sparkling wine and a snack before the lounge closed for the night. They processed my check in and upgraded me to a "lifestyle suite" with huge bathroom, shower room with claw-foot tub, giant closet and lots of high-tech amenities. Overall decor and quality of furnishings was well beyond even the nicest Hiltons in the US. Breakfast buffet was expansive and high-quality.
Location is convenient. It was fun to experience Wangfujing neighborhood on my first and short visit to Beijing,More
