I have stayed here for business on a number of occasions. This time round, they did recognize me as a returning guest during the check-in (nice surprise) and welcomed me back.
Location wise, it is very central for business travelers in the Oriental building complex (dongfang) and the hotel is convenient for the tourists with many sites nearby: forbidden city, CCTV tower, pedestrian walk on wangfujing etc. overall, very convenient with many good restaurants nearby.
Rooms were fairly clean though the carpets probably need another good shampooing. Bed was fairly comfy and the bathroom was standard Crowne Plaza/Holiday Inn ie quite business like: clean, standard amenities etc. for a business trip, this room was sufficient but it would be a little bit of a squeeze for 2 people on vacation.
Staff were generally friendly especially the Chinese restaurant. I felt they were very helpful and did go out of their way to accommodate a special meal request. Food at the Chinese restaurant was good. Breakfast was unfortunately a bit of a hit and miss with staff scrambling to get room numbers and tables and coffee/tea. Suggest the hotel re-look the breakfast seating process. Food at breakfast was not bad but definitely need healthier options.
Overall, good hotel and I will come back again.
