Stayed for 3 nights , Oct.10-13th. , "gold floor". I did on extensive checking prior to making reservation. I was able to received a very good deal directly from Fairmont reservation center.Gold floor is a definite great deal.Outstanding breakfast, both western and Chinese - the best shrimp dumpling !. Not only quality excellent, but almost artistic presentation. In afternoon again excellent selection of different type of food and drinks. Pastry - identical to the best founded in patisseries in Paris. We asked and talked to a chef , who is originally from Switzerland.
3 floors special fitness center - spa, swimming pool, yoga room etc.
Rooms - everything electronically controlled. Very comfortable.Everybody already wrote about bathrooms.
We found location to be perfect.Not on main shopping street. Much less hassle, but very close to a main line o metro, which is a definitely the best way to travel.
Beautiful decoration all around this hotel Look and the main chandelier in a lobby. Finally - personnel. Extremely polite and helpful.
We did travel extensively to a different part of the world and this hotel was one of the best or even not the best which we ever stay.

Convenient location - minutes walk from subway station. Take a map and hotel location with you - taxi drivers are not too familiar with this new location.
Beautiful rooms with very high-tech bathrooms (and toilet!) and lighting system.
Spacious spa although not fully operating with limited services.
Beautiful dining facilities but didn't try the food.
Indoor pool with excellent fitness centre.
Free wifi with President's Club membership.

Others:

2 bakeries down the road (exit the hotel and walk down the straight to your right) for breakfast and yummy pastries!

English-speaking tour guide Maggie (maggie11882000@yahoo.com.cn) is excellent.

1949 Hidden City: Noodle Bar for hand-make soup noodles and Duck de Chine for duck and 50% off quality dimsum... the best!

Location: Not the greatest location for restaurants and nightlife, but the subway station is a five minute walk and the hotel is close to the “Silk Market”. One late evening we were looking for a restaurant and I asked the doorman what were the flashing neon lights down the street, his reply a housing development. The next night we made the 5-minute walk towards the lights, which we discovered were advertising an “Entertainment and Gentleman’s area. A quick look around and we noticed, “massage” signs, clearly not a good dinner location!
Hotel: A new hotel with very nice public space and fine restaurants, surrounded by large office towers, a true 5star hotel.
Room: We had a fantastic room, very clean and modern.
Internet: We are members of the Fairmont Gold club and received free internet otherwise I think it is expensive. No free internet in the lobby as seems to be the norm in China.
Service: was excellent from the front desk to the bellman. One late evening we wanted a simple noodle dinner. The doorman insisted on walking us to the nearby restaurant and made sure it was open. We asked for a taxi to the airport on departure, The bellman insisted on taking our luggage from our room to the lobby and the taxi was waiting as promised. If you can afford to have access to the Fairmont Gold lounge, it is worth it. Good breakfast, evening drinks and snacks were included. The staff in the lounge were extremely helpful and attentive. While the hotel is geared to the business traveler, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and assist with site seeing and shopping. The concierge arranged a driver to drive us to the Great Wall. While not as cheap as getting our own taxi off the street, he spoke in Chinese to the driver setting out where we wanted to go and providing the driver with the hotel phone number in case of needed translation.
Summary: Fairmont Hotels need to run their North American hotels the same way as the Fairmont Chinese hotels operate. I highly recommend this hotel.
TIP: when you arrive at the airport have the Info people write out the hotel name and address in Chinese as the hotel is new and not well known to taxi drivers.

This hotel is beautiful, extremely comfortable, and offers great amenities. The location is excellent, right by the subway and on a side street, so there's much less traffic noise than other choices. The service could not be better. I used the gym and the spa, both of which were amazing. The chef is terrific, so there is always an excellent dining in option. The concierge was knowledgeable and helpful in arranging short sightseeing outings. The entire staff makes this an outstanding stay. I will be back.

One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. Stop your looking and just book. Unbeilivable facility and service. Great locations. One block from subway and the silk market.

Staff speaks very good english. Unbielivable spa. You won't want to leave but what a wonderful place to return to after your adventuntures!

This hotel is fantastic. Service is really exceptional from the manager on down. The manager solicited our opinions on how to make it better and everyone made sure our stay was the best ever. Health Club and spa are great, and the room is extremely plush and comfortable. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Good location; good on site restaurant; all the amnitiies you could want, and the best sevice possible.

I am currently using the hotel wifi to write this review. Firstly we are traveling with 2 kids age 3 & 2. The hotel checkin was smooth. Bell men nice and helpful as well as the rooms are amazing. The rooms are so modern and the nice wooden baby crib is great for our 2 year old. The deluxe king room has a couch and we just turn it around for our 3 year old. The tv doesn't have childrens show so best to bring an iPhone to plug in. The DVD player has a USB jack so maybe try a jump USB drive with movies on it for the kids if you plan a visit. The fairmont has been very helpful ( Elton and Dave) in the lunar 8 restaurant in getting kids meals for my kids. They go above and beyond service. The spa and pool are now open and look great. Nice steam rooms and gym is 24 hours and offers free red bull. Nice! Hotel location is literally 200 meters from silk market. Sometimes cabs have a tough time finding it, so tell them it is behind the LG building and is attached to the reignwood building. If you see the Starbucks next to the silk market it is directly across the street and down the road. I am very impressed with the hotel and they have been wonderful with making my kids comfortable. They even gave them a gift at dinner last night. Highly recommend this hotel and will be sad to check out in 3 days. But will be back in 5 days. So can't wait.
