This was our first trip to China and the hotel made all the difference! Service was excellent! The concierge is top flight and helped with all our questions from finding the right tours to locating new dog clippers. We arrived very late and the airport pick up was a very welcome site and well worth the money. Very quick ride into the city and a friendly welcome at the front desk. Yes, do the upgrade--it's well worth the money as many other reviews have mentioned.
Cabs are the way to go in this city if you have limited time as we did--the hotel will send them on the way with a note on the location and what your looking for. Cabs are inexpensive and give you a real feel for the expanse and diversity of this city. The hotel is in a perfect spot--minutes walk from major shopping and the local houtongs. It's hidden behind a very large Regent hotel just off the main street so it's quiet and more private.
Peking Duck at Dadong is a must--just across the main street from the hotel in one of the many upscale malls. The restaurant walls are full of awards and after dinning there you will know why.
Mei Zhou Dong Po, apparently a chain as there are many locations-- about a 10 minute walk from the hotel is excellent, inexpensive and very large portions. Most of these restaurant close at 10:00 PM so be sure you are inside before 9:30 as they stop seating then.
Great Wall tour the hotel can schedule. Get a good tour director and a private car or van you if you don't' want to be included in the huge bus tours. Muitanyu entrance is not so crowded be it a bit farther drive from the city, it's worth it.
I would recommend this hotel highly and will stay there again on our next visit to Beijing.
