Location is on the east side of the city (3rd ring road) - close to the airport highway and rail link but it's in the Central Business District - a long way from the usual tourist spots and the least Chinese place in China. The only walkable destination is the "village" - a high-cost, global brand mall (even Starbucks is there) backing onto a slightly seedy restaurant / bar district popular with young Westerners. The hotel is everything you expect in a four/five star in Asia. Hordes of over-attentive staff (expect two people to compete for the honor of opening a door for you and at least three people to say "welcome back" every time you enter the lobby). The bedroom and large bathroom are really nice and packed with technology. Super comfortable bed and no noise disturbance. Top tip: the light and curtain controls are in a drop down panel in the bedside cabinet. Great workstation with universal power outlets, USB etc. Hi-speed wifi is 120 Yuen per 24-hours, slow wifi is free in the public spaces.
Breakfast is a challenge. You can search for lots of Asian and Western stuff scattered along a long row of shelves (the library?) then you find out they offer omelettes, noodles etc from the a la carte. Good for foodies, I guess, but something of a challenge if you're not a morning person.
