I booked 3 weekend nights in the Hilton January sale and a fourth night elsewhere. One booking was for a room with a King sized bed and for the other only a twin room could be booked. When we arrived at the hotel, I asked George at reception if he could put us in the same room for the four nights. He checked the computer and upgraded us to a lifestyle suite. It was perfect. We could see the Forbidden City from our room.
The lounge was excellent, especialy for breakfast. Maria and Kerry were outstanding.
We also loved the location of the hotel. It almost backed on to Wangfujing. This was our 5th visit to Beijing and we had mostly stayed at the other end of Wangfujing.
There was a slight problem with taxi drivers being unable to find the hotel, but my husband was able to give some directions in Mandarin. (A result of five years of post retirement study) As many taxi drivers do not come from Beijing originally, they even had difficulties with the hotel's map.
I am very grateful to all the previous reviewers who recommended this hotel so highly.More
