So I used a tour group called Contiki for my time in China. This is the start of the tour, we stayed 2 nights here and I wasn't sure what to expect. The good news is that there was a transfer fro the airport and I didn't have to explain to a cab where to go.
If you never been ti China and is from the US, Canada or any Western country be ready for a culture shock.

The lobby of this hotel is nice and spacious, the front desk is helpful and speaks a small bit of English... with enough effort you will be able to communicate. There is a restaurant as well as lobby bar available for your convenience. There is a small gift shop as well. Immediately outside is a convenience store for water, drinks, beer, etc...
This hotel is within walking distance to Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City, expect a 15 - 20 minute walk. You can also to go the Temple of Heaven within 10 - 15 minutes.
The rooms are pretty average, nothing very fancy but it is clean. The bathrooms are pretty decent as well. You probably won't be spending much time in your room, but at least it is clean and safe.
