After a 12 hour flight from Chicago, we arrived in Beijing at midnight and were looking forward to a good night sleep. We arrived at the Sheraton Dongcheng and based on my husband's SPG status were provided keys for an executive suite. What a treat! The suite was larger than some apartments with a full living room, separate bedroom, 2 bathrooms and work area. The floor to ceiling windows provided a great view of the Olympic Stadium and Birds Nest.
The lounge was fantastic as well, providing a delicious full breakfast each morning and drinks/appetizers in the evening. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and that all of our needs were covered.
The fitness center did not disappoint with state of the art equipment, pool and separate yoga area for stretching. We did not have spa treatments at the hotel but the spa area looked inviting although on the expensive side from what we reviewed.
Similiar to other trip advisor reviews, the hotel is not centrally located and a taxi is required to see any of the sites. Additionally, taxis did have a hard time finding the hotel, taking us to another Sheraton 2 out of 3 times. We believe this is really the only downside of the hotel.
Finally, if the thought of jumping into another taxi sounds tiring, there is a shopping area directly across from the hotel that has a market as well as some restaurants for lunch or dinner. All in all, if we were to travel back to Beijing, would definitely stay at the Sheraton Dongcheng again.
