When I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago, I was traveling with a friend so it made sense to upgrade to a club room with Happy Hour + breakfast included. This time I was traveling on my own, and initially wanted to resist the very strong pressure of the Receptionist and stay in a "regular" superior room vs. a club room -- what I had booked.
I was given room 314, right above the restaurant, and it was like I was staying at another hotel from the Park Plaza I like so much! The room was old and tired, old upholstery and carpet, a bit dingy, dark, smelly. A minute later, I was down at Reception asking for the upgrade.
It all changed with the new room, and I was once again at the wonderful hotel I like so much. I guess some would say you get what you pay for, and yes be prepared to upgrade if you want a nice room. That's what I am reviewing -- a club room, and not the superior room they sell on the web!
Cost of the upgrade: RMB 273.70 per day with tax ($46).
Make sure you factor this in when you make the reservation.
I loved my room, the hotel location and the breakfast, but the cost per day was $151 and not $105 as I thought initially.
I will keep this in mind when I next book a stay in Beijing. I did not like the $105 room at all.
