We stayed at the Grand Hyatt Beijing for 2 nights on our first visit to Beijing, and were very happy with our stay. It helped that we were upgraded to a suite, which was large and spacious and very quiet.
The facilities are excellent - "tropical grotto" style underground pool area seemed a bit strange at first, but was actually very pleasant - and the adjacent gym was large and well appointed (much mores than the typical hotel). The hotel sits above a large mall including a subway stop so in that sense is very convenient to public transport routes. Plus the hotel is within walking distance, or a 5 minute cab ride, of the Forbidden Citry and Tiananmen Square. So a very good choice for first time travelers to the city. The concierge service was very helpful in this respect also.
Food was great - good quality and selection of food for breakfast. The hotel's acclaimed "Made in China" restaurant is excellent - we had the Peking duck, which was sublime. Definitely go here, whether or not you stay at the Hyatt! And good cocktails at the Japanese restaurant/bar.
We ordered a hotel car from the airport to the hotel when we arrived, and although it wasn't cheap it was a fantastic service - a hotel rep met us literally as we disembarked the aircraft, guided us through customs and luggage etc and through a special VIP exit to a waiting car - completely seamless.
All the hotel staff had good English.
My only criticisms would be the lack of free wifi or internet access and the somewhat confusing corridors on the hotel room floors. These were a small price to pay for what was overall a very good experience.
