RWG excellent reputation is well earned. This is not a hermetically sealed homogenised international brand where you could be anywhere - it is a very comfortable home base with all the necessities, great service, lovely facilities in a location that lets you feel you are in China.
Stayed in the Duplex Suites for four nights. They are upstairs/downstairs units which are well appointed, comfortable beds, great showers, local feel with the furniture and opening onto a central courtyard with trees and tables where you can have a drink or a meal.
Staff are excellent, breakfasts were first class and they do have a restaurant for dinner (untried as there are great restaurants like 1949 just 5 minutes walk away).
Walking to Forbidden city is about 30 minutes and Wangfujing St shopping and quirky food alleys is 10 minutes.
Staff are just great and Lilly deserves a special mention for the genuine friendliness and level of attention she gave our party.
