Lovely hotel, close to the airport. Ideal for the first night when you get off a long flight or for a long layover. Staff speak excellent English, room service is great, WiFi is fast, beds are super comfortable. An absolutely lovely experience. The one negative is that the shuttle bus is not signposted in the airport terminal and is very difficult to find. Even at the point where the information desk told me to wait, there was no signage to indicate that hotel shuttle busses would stop there. Eventually I spotted the bus stopped on the other side of the street, but you would need to be paying attention (which is difficult, coming off a 14 hour flight!)
The only minor complaint I would have about this hotel is finding it! They do not have a map on the web site anywhere, and no one in Beijing knows where 'Financial Street' is because they only know it by the Chinese name (Jirung or something?) If I didn't have the phone # of the hotel with me, I may not have ever found it! Also its about a 10 minute walk to the nearest subway. The hotel itself was great, everything you would expect from a Ritz-Carlton hotel - great service, great room, excellent restaurants and facilities.
The hotel has great views of Olympic park, especially at night, and is near by a shopping mall in the park with restaurants. The Expedia rate was great, and including breakfast is a good deal when added to the room rate. Restaurants at the hotel are very nice, but very expensive. Breakfast was very good.
Wifi connection was strong, but connections to US web sites is slow, and many are blocked by firewall in China. It worked well for email and news sites, not a lot else.
I stayed five nights in this hotel. My stay was very enjoyable. The room I stayed in (on the 12th floor) was spacious and included many extra amenities such as a TV in the bathroom, a drawer with office supplies (scissors, paper clips, daily newspapers on the floor, etc), curtains that open and close with a remote, etc. The bedding is of a high quality and very comfortable. The room was nicely furnished and decorated. It was very clean, with a maid service twice a day. The staff speaks good English, is extremely helpful and truly service-oriented. You feel pampered at this hotel. The hotel is not in a walking distance to most attractions. However, this is not an issue since it is 2 minutes walk from a metro station. The metro system is very efficient, punctual, safe, clean and reaches every important location in the city. Further, for about $2-3 taxi fare you can get to most attractions. There is a Starbucks and a couple of good restaurnats in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, if you want to avoid the hotel's pricey restaurant. The only complaint that I have is that they charge extra for internet connection. Overall, I warmly recommend this hotel and plan to stay there in my next trip to Beijing.
Good business hotel. Probably not the best location for sight seer's. It was very convinient for my purposes. Room was a little bit warm but I did not mind after working in the cold Beijing environment!
