20-30 minutes from Capitol Airport. Close to numerous business offices (Schneider Electronics, Nortel, Motorola.) Large hotel; not too many restaurants in area, 2 in hotel. Concierge was very helpful with information and even dismissed a taxi driver who did not meet his expectations. English was not always easy to understand. Very helpful and fast response from staff when I had problems with computer settings and couldn't connect with the internet. Wonderful pool and exercise center.

This was probably one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. Just walking through the doors, you could tell this was not a basic hotel. While checking in, the manager offered us some hot lemonade. (It's China - all drinks are served hot.)
The room was obviously geared toward businessmen with the desk and office chair, but very nice nonetheless. We were excited to find the bed to be soft - something not very typical in China! We signed up for Marriott Rewards on the spot to get free access to the Internet in our room (wifi and wired). Remember that this is China, so some sites are blocked - they are very upfront about this as well when you login. Keep in mind the bathroom has windows by the king sized bed - very Chinese - and might be uncomfortable for some Westerners, especially families.
The fitness floor has a gym, locker room with showers and saunas, and a heated indoor pool area with a 20 foot hot tub. Being from the US, I'm use to just walking into the pool area and jumping right in. It took us a moment to realize that I needed to talk to the people in the Fitness Floor Lobby to get a locker key, towel, and small bottle of water. Pool entrance is through the locker rooms.
Make sure to avoid the in-room snack bar! WAY over priced, but rather expected. Starbucks is about a 15 minute walk to the east, and Pizza Hut & Coldstone Ice Cream is about a 20 minute walk up a block to the North as of Summer 2013.
If you can get a good deal, it's WELL worth the stay.
