down to 4 hotel choices - need advice

hi there

we've narrowed it down to 4 hotels and was wondering if you can help us decide. We would like to see may of the main attractions and also get some shopping done. we've chosen the Waifujung area.

We have 6 year old child if that would help with giving feedback.

Park Plaza

Capital Hotel

North Garden Hotel

Jianguo Garden

your opinions would be appreciated.

Hi,

If you want a Wangfujing location the Park Plaza or North Garden Hotel would be better than the others on your list location wise.

The Capital Hotel is really in the eastern Qianmen area. You can walk to Wangfujing from there ( it's under a kilometer) but there is lots of walking involved in seeing the sights of Beijing and it might be too much for a 6 year old legs at the end of busy days :-)

I don't know much about the Jianguo Garden Hotel sorry other than it is too far from Wangfujing if that is where you want to be.

Jiangguo Garden, not to be confused with Jiangguo Hotel, is not that far from Wangfujing but not really on it. Capital hotel is not in Wangfujing but close to Qianmen which I think is more interesting than Wangfujing

Just stayed at Park Plaza. Very nice stay. Staff very cordial. Great ginger tea for guest available in lobby. Subway entrance 2 min walk away. Starbucks and Lei garden restaurant for dim sum across the entranceway. Wangfujing shopping area/night market and DonghuAmen night market within waking distance, Da Dong Peking Duck 5 min walk away. Can't go wrong.
