Having travelled extensively in Asia and the far east generally we have experienced some really excellent hotels, however the Fairmont, Beijing probably tops our list of hotels to revisit.
We opted for the hotel car service to meet us at the airport which was well worth the money as we were met at the gate and assisted through what is a very busy airport and we were soon on our way. Cleverly the driver called ahead as we neared the hotel and as we stepped from the car we were greeted by name and quickly escorted to our room, having been personally welcomed by the hotel manager who apparently tries to meet guests whenever he is able. We had opted for a Gold Room which is not cheap, but is very good value as apart from a great room the rate included a fabulous breakfast, drinks and snacks, afternoon tea and most of all a wonderful staff team who could not do enough to make us feel comfortable and welcome.
we also used to hotel for transport to the Great Wall and othet attractions as we didnt want a tour or guide and theat was all arranged by the very capable, larger than life Bob from the concierge team. Location is good as it is very close to the subway, really importatnt as Taxi drivers here will often not pick up tourists and also dont really know the city anyway. Subway is very easy to use. Also close to Silk Market which is fun if you negotiate strongly.
Tried and recommend The Cut restaurant, excellent food and service. They mad a real occasion of our wedding anniversary
The hotel itself is stunning with wonderful art work and a beautiful spa and pool again with staff who attend to your every need ( and some you hadnt even thought of)
we are really sorry to leave this truly Great Hotel and are really grateful to all the excellent managers ans staff who are the most important element in making the hotel so exceptional
