Having gotten used to the Four Points in the US, this one in Beijing was surprisingly luxurious for the brand. The bathroom especially was pretty expansive with a separate shower and tub. There were signs of wear on the bathroom though with hard-water stains and cracked tiles.The toiletries provided are also way above what you would normally get in a Four Points in the US. The room was quite spacious with a good bed. This hotel would qualify as a Sheraton/Westin in the US.
Internet was complimentary as i have SPG Gold status, but the speeds left a lot to be desired. The connections were frequently dropped and it was an annoyance.
Breakfast was OK, but i am vegetarian. Being a vegetarian i was glad to find anything at all to eat in the breakfast buffet.
The hotels in northern China don't seem to have A/C. China offers subsidized heat during winter and all the hotels are happy to crank up the heat in the rooms. You do not have any control. If you need to room cooler your only option is turn the heat off and open the windows. I had to open my window as my room was really hot.
Location wise the hotel is reasonably close to everything. Taxi in Beijing is fairly inexpensive by US standards and you can get to most places for under 50 CNY from this hotel.
Service is good, and all in all a good place to stay.
