First is location. location, location. This hotel is located in the International Club area of Beijing in the midst of the foreign embassy area. This area used to be Beijing’s original diplomatic district. The hotel is a solid 5 star property with 5 star service (with 5 star being the best rating available).The staff is excellent, their English is very good, the service and welcome feeling is one of the best business hotel experiences that I have had in Asia. The hotel property is elegant if not a little dated. The rooms are spacious and the location is in a quiet area so that even when there is traffic on the street the rooms are quiet, whether on the street side or other areas of the hotel. There are Western and Asian/Chinese restaurants within easy walking distance and Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City are close enough if you would like to take a long walk but easily within a 5 minutes taxi ride. The Great wall is within a 1.5 to 2 hour drive. The International Club area is an area of low rise buildings and embassies and wide tree lined streets conducive to a comfortable and safe feeling when walking or even a run in the morning or evening. The Garden Court casual dining al a coffee shop is very nice and the morning breakfast buffet is excellent. I enjoyed a great rate which included butler service as well as breakfast and club lounge privileges. There is a Starbucks across the street and a reasonably good Tex Mex restaurant next door. I definitely plan to return the next time I am in Beijing whether on business or pleasure.
