“Beautiful Property”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

I traveled with a group of 10 to Beijing and we booked three 2-bedroom apartments. Upon arrival I could tell we had chosen the right location. The bellman promptly greeted our taxi and took all of our luggage. Check in was like sitting down talking to your bankers. Nice, comfy chairs and the staff spoke English very well.

Our apartment was spacious and very well-appointed. Nice furniture, large bedrooms, and more than ample living, dining, and kitchen area. TV's in every room with an excellent selection of local and western stations to choose from.

Our package included the daily breakfast buffet. Great selection of foods both traditional Asian and western. The fresh juices were DELICIOUS!!!

I plan to return to Beijing in November and will definitely be staying at this hotel again.,

When I had decided that I wanted to stay in apartment property for my beijing holiday, Marriott was a obvious choice for its quality. Kitchen was a pre-requisite as we are vegetarian and would like to cook our food.

Booking online for reservation was easy through Marriott's website.

Checkin was easy once we arrived at the hotel. The staff are courteous and spoke reasonably good english. Infact it was a pleasant surprise that we were upgraded from studio to one bedroom apartment.

Please be mindful that the kitchen does not have utensils, plates, spoons, etc placed. One has to request for it. Accordingly, it makes sense to inform them in advance so that you have sufficient cooking utensils in kitchen. As expected, the cooking is on induction. The apartment is fully functional with nice living room with sofa, TV; kitchen with microwave, fridge, washing machine, etc; and bedroom with king bed, TV, closet. The apartment is quite spacious, neat, and right level of lighting and cooling.

The location is ideal as its closer to high street. One can go to Ole supermarket in Wangfujing street in APM mall for purchasing of groceries. The location is also closer to subway / metro station Wangfujing which is one station away from Tienanmen square and other city centre tourist areas.

The swimming pool on top floor was a nice big clean pool and kids can enjoy in the pool.

The checkout was smooth.

Overall, excellent choice for vegetarian family who wants to cook ready to eat food in beijing.

The Imperial Mansion, Beijing Marriott Executive Apartments in Wangfujing is a 5 star property that match the best of the 5 star hotels. Although it is only an executive apartments, its structure, layout, appearance, ambience, and furnishing,and anything a traveler would desire, could match the best of the best hotels, like Four Seasons, Peninsula, Ritz Carlton, etc. The only category that was not equal to these 5 star hotels is its service. As it is an executive apartment complex, and not a complete service hotel, one could understand that. However, it did not mean that the service was lacking in this establishment; it only meant that some minor services like nightly turn-down were not performed. The lobby is majestic.The suites are huge. The only hotel with larger suites is the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, among several dozens of 5 star properties experienced by this traveler. Equally well set up were the furnishing in the units, each having quality furniture and decorated in great taste. The linen and the bed-covers were also high quality. The staff were friendly and eager to help at any time. Even though it was only a serviced apartment, the front desk was staffed around the clock. Because it was not operated as a hotel, it did not have a dedicated concierge or a bell captain desk. Nevertheless, the reception desk staff and the door-persons were eager to assist the guests any time, including the mundane tasks of calling a taxi or getting a taxi to come at certain time to meet the guests. The staff's English were pretty good. There was no problem to communicate with them. The bathroom has a bathtub that was pool-sized! Can't imagine anyone using it as it would take forever to fill!

Room Tip: Take the upgraded one bedroom unit. It has a study in addition to the bedroom that is room-sized and...

We stayed here for 9 nights as a family of 5 in late July 2014. We arrived very early in the morning and although our apartment wasn't ready the staff helpfully provided a smaller apartment in the interim so we could refresh ourselves and rest after the long flight from the UK. This was exceptional service and a really welcome gesture for a family with 3 children under 10.

The 2 bedroom apartment we had booked was spacious and well equipped and easily large enough for 5 (with cot bed for the smallest child). The only downside was that - for an apartment with cooking facilities - there were no bowls or cutlery provided. These had to be requested specially. This is however a minor niggle. One great point is that the apartment came with a washer/dryer which meant we didn't have to pack as many clothes for a trip which stretched out to 3 weeks with other cities en-route. Another bonus is that the hotel also has a decent (although slightly chilly) pool which allowed us to take a nice refreshing break after a day's sightseeing in the hot July sun.

There is a restaurant on the 2nd floor and a resident's lounge. We didn't book the breakfast option because it just didn't seem economical to do so considering the relatively cheap price of food in China compared with the price of breakfast in the hotel. As a result we never used the restaurant so can't comment on this. I did however venture down to the lounge one particularly hot evening in the hope of grabbing a drink and maybe a chat with a fellow traveller. The lounge was however like a ghost town. It was just me and the guy vacuuming the floor. Luckily he didn't see me and I escaped to another hotel for my drink! Don't expect a vibrant bar scene in this hotel.

In terms of location, having lived in Beijing for a few years in the early 2000s I am familiar with the city layout. This holiday was a chance for me to show my kids the city and I believe these apartments are in one of the best locations in Beijing. The Forbidden City and Tiananmen are just around the corner, there are parks and lakes in easy walking distance and the amazing shopping street of Wangfujing is just around the corner. A big plus is the subway line is just a few minutes walk away and this opens up the whole of the city and beyond. One downside is that taxis outside the hotel are far and few between and they see any tourist as a chance to rip you off. I speak Chinese, I know Beijing and I know how to haggle - but the drivers still refused to use the meter (which is illegal) and wanted to charge me more than 4 times the normal meter fare for a relatively short journey. Incidentally a Chinese friend of mine told me the government doubled the minimum taxi fare a few years ago to help the drivers earn a decent wage in a city with an increasing number of taxis. However the unintentional result was that the drivers realised they only had to work half as hard to earn the same money!! My advice - use the subway!

One slight problem occurred shortly after our stay. I have the Marriott App on my phone as i frequently stay at their hotels. Early in the morning on departure day the app gave me the option of checking out online and receiving my bill via email. I chose to do this as with 3 kids I knew we'd be rushing on the last day to get our transport out of the city. I never received the emailed bill and the Marriott website would not let me simply request a bill without contacting the hotel - presumably because China is outside the normal Marriott network. When I checked my bank statement a few days later I found that I had been overcharged by almost 3000 RMB (about 300 quid when transaction fees are factored in). This meant I had to call the hotel directly to try and sort it out. Luckily the error has now been recognised but I am told it will take 20 days for the refund.

That said, this wouldn't put me off staying here again. It's a great place.

We stayed 3 nights at the Imperial Mansion, Marriott Executive Apartments in Beijing a week ago. I chose the apartment/hotel partly for it excellent central location - one block from the pedestrian only Wanfujing shopping street and within walking distance from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City/Palace Museum. The hotel was only two years old. We had a very spacious 1-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen for the 3 of us. Our granddaughter had a sofa bed in the study. The living room and dining area were very comfortably furnished with a half bath in the entry way. We had a king bed in the master bedroom, separate shower, enclosed toilet and a large round tub in the bathroom. Service was friendly and accommodating. There was a large indoor swimming pool on the 8th floor with we did not utilize. We also did not take any meals in the hotel restaurant which had rather limited offerings. But there were ample good dining establishments in the neighborhood so that was not a problem. The only shortcoming was that the kitchen was not equipped at all. You had to ask housekeeping for pots and pans and silverware which was not very convenient. In any case, the Imperial Mansion was a comfortable place to come home to after being out in the city all day.

If you are a tourist, this is a great hotel for your stay. It's close to many destinations such as the forbidden city and tienamen square. There is also in unit laundry which is great for if you are on a longer trip!

However, if you are looking to stay here long term in their executive apartments, I would not recommend it. We came to Beijing for 4 months for my husbands work and wanted to stay in a place where I would feel more at home. The apartment itself was very spacious and it was very clean. However, I was hoping that I would be able to cook while we were here. Unfortunately, the kitchen lacked larger pots and pans and didn't have an oven. Really, the kitchen could only be used to warm up something on the stove or in the microwave because of the lack of cooking pans and utensils. We also found that very few of the staff spoke enough English to answer basic questions about the neighborhood. Wangfujing, the neighborhood where the hotel is located, is a major Chinese tourist destination so we found it to be noisy, crowded and dirty for most of our stay. There was construction going on next to the hotel which meant there was banging all through the night making sleeping sometimes difficult!

On the upside, the breakfast in the mornings was phenomenal and we really appreciated that amenity. It was also great to have laundry in unit. The workout facilities and pool were well kept and almost everyday I had both of them to myself which was really nice!
