I've stayed in a lot of 5 star hotels, so when my hosts in Beijing insisted I stay at the Pangu and told me it was a 7 star hotel, I was thinking it would be something special. It was very good, but I could never figure out what the 6th and 7th stars were for. Perhaps it was the number of staff standing around saying good morning or good evening; I've never seen so many staff at any hotel in the world, everywhere. Or the immense displays of gorgeous flowers and orchids everywhere--beautiful. The location is not near anything really, it's a great area for walking, near my hosts and fairly close to the airport, but not central Beijing, especially in traffic, so meetings in other parts of the city too forever to get to The rooms were deathly quiet, which was great, and after the first night when I collapsed from a 17 hour flight and endless dinner with friends I finally figured out the heating system. I turned it off--and the maid always turned it on--high. The room was thoughtful, what I call "Chinese" elegant, but many features--lighting, window shades, lots of bottled water, bath products, flowers, fruit--were nice touches of high quality. The breakfast buffet is superb, American, European, Chinese or Japanese. The top floor bar was uncomfortable as it allows smokers, and folks do smoke there. But I was not shocked at the scotch prices, nor in fact, the prices at Pangu in general, which are nowhere near what one would pay in London, Rome or New York for a 5 star hotel like the Peninsula, Claridges etc. It's a very good 4-5 star hotel by world standards, but seven? I'm waiting to be wowed.
