Beijing Marriott Hotel City Wall
Ranked #31 of 6,556 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 8 March 2012

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. One of the immediate drawbacks is the location. The shuttle bus driver had a problem getting to the hotel. When we took a Grayline tour this company also had problems getting into and out of the hotel so they parked across the street. It is an extremely busy street and access to the other side is via an underpass. It's the only time in China I have seen homeless people bedding down. Would not want to go down there at night. My husband has platinum status so we had a very nice room on the executive floor. Room was spacious, however, the couch under the window was a nuisance. Had to climb on it to pull back the drapes. Could have lived without it! Bathroom and shower were spacious and very modern. Beds extremely comfortable though the linens were over starched. Executive staff in the lounge always tripping over us to be of help. Sometimes a little bit too much. Staff in general were extremely courteous though at times there were language difficulties. Speaking slowly really seems to help. Dined twice in the Bistro cafe. Other than the young wait staff not knowing what a straw was (on both occasions), or taking forever to get some ice in the glass, the food was good. Overall a good stay.

Spent 3 nights at this hotel. The view from the hotel was not that great but attention to every detail is paid on the inside of the hotel. What I loved about this hotel is that it was centrally located (next to one of the main train stations). This made it easy to hop on the subway, which was our main mode of transportation while in Beijing.

Stayed @ the Marriot Beijing City Wall for 3 nights while spending a few days to know Beijing. As a Gold member I got an upgrade to a Junior Suite with access to the Executive Lounge.

Nice lobby with a modern design, well kept, looks recently renewed. The Hotel has 3 restaurants, but I only had chance to try one of them for a Cheeseburguer....nothing fancy but it was a GREAT cheeseburguer, although expensive but expected from a 4-5 stars hotel.

The room was great, beautifully decorated, Marriot class. Free internet is a great plus, as well as the easy access to Beijing subway and relative closeness to major tourist attractions.

THe Exec Lounge was one of the best I've enjoyed at MArriots. The breaksfast was great, but what truly exceeded the expectations was the hors d'oeuvre wonderfull offer and free drinks. Not only the variety but the service was superb.

I stayed on Marriot points and even so it was a great deal: only 45,000 points for 3 nights at an EXCELLENT hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on Executive C tower have direct access to the Executive Floor

City Wall Marriott is a convenient location to begin your adventure in Beijing. Near by attractions (within walking distance) is much history including the Forbidden City. If you are a shopper the pearl market and silk market are an easy cab ride away (4USD). Beijing rail station is nearly next door so people watching is amazing.

Staff at the hotel is helpful and efficient. When I called for extra amenities the doorbell rang quickly and a smile was given without effort. Rooms are clean and well appointed in blacks and reds, a not over the top Asian influence throughout. Cash machine in lobby that is a "Bank of China" so no additional fees.

Food is of good quality yet expensive relative to the area, this is to be expected in a hotel. Lots of nice choices around hotel for quick bite.

Room Tip: City noise is present, rooms on higher floor may be helpful.

I went to Beijing in December 2011 and stayed at the Marriott City Wall. The hotel is in the city center, it is about a $16 ~ 100 CNY ride from the airport. I am a frequent traveler so I used my Marriott points to book the hotel. After paying on only 45,000 for 3 nights I was not 100% sure of the quality, especially since it was a category 3 Marriott property. When I walked into the hotel that uncertainty quickly disappeared. The inside was very chic and modern and the staff was courteous and polite. Due to my platinum status I was upgraded to an executive room !!!! so I was definitely excited at this point. The room was set up like a typical junior suite and the view of the city was amazing. The food and the drinks in the executive lounge were pretty up to par. One night I was tired to go out for dinner that I just ate there. To make a long story short:

Pro's

walking distance to subway
walking distance to main attractions- Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City
close to other attractions such as the Silk market
Great concierge- they helped me to plan my trip to the Great Wall, Ming Tombs and Olympic Sites

Con's

Can' really think of any

Great location, efficient checkin. Room clean tidy and well appointed, was also very quiet with trhe added benefit of two sets of double glazed windows.
Pool was closed when we were there which was unfortunate but the gym was really good with modern spin bikes.
We asked about the baby sitting service that is mentioned in their compendium only to be told it doesn't exist! That was the only disappointment.
Concierge was very good offering to help organise tours etc. The girls in rthe executive level dinign room were friendly, efficient and remembered us every time.
Woud go back.

I stayed at this hotel on the recommendation of a colleague. It was for the final few days on a three week visit to China. While the rooms are spacious and well appointed, they are a little odd. The lighting in the bathroom is not great for someone who wants to put on makeup and the placement of the sofa in the room was odd (too close to the bed and bad lighting if you want to read). I stayed here, in part, because my friend said how close it was to the underground -- it is not far, but the walk to the stop is rather lonely and means crossing a very busy Beijing street (or, going through the underpass ... which you don't want to do at night, since there are 1 - 3 guys sleeping there). This would be a great hotel for a business trip, but for vacation purposes VERY expensive breakfast (190 RMB + 15% service charge for the cold continental breakfast -- about $30 -- ouch. I bought fruit and yoghurt at the grocery store). I was also surprised that there was no little gift shop anywhere in the hotel to pick up the little things one would need. Most disturbing, coming home from dinner on Sunday evening with a Chinese friend, two taxi cabs declined to take us to the hotel (it wasn't a matter of not being able to find it ... had the hotel card with the address in Chinese and a map). My Chinese friend couldn't figure out why this was the case. We ended up taking the subway -- but, thank heavens there were two of us. As a single woman traveler, I would not have felt comfortable walking from the subway stop back to the hotel on my own at 9 p.m. Next time, I'm going to pick a less expensive place that is closer to the major sights or something in one of the hutong. This place seemed a bit too isolated.
