Was surprised when I got off my flight from Shanghai to Beijing (T3) to see a Marriott staff carrying a card with my name on it.
Ok, granted I did book a hotel transfer from the airport to the hotel but in all my experiences with other hotels, the JW Marriott in Beijing was the first where I had this service. After greeting me at the air-bridge, I was escorted to collected my luggage. After collecting my luggage, I was taken to the VIP area and was on my way to the hotel in all of 20 minutes. Impressed.
When I was in the car, the mobile phone that was in the car rang and it was one of their guest relations associate calling to confirm my room preference. A very nice touch indeed.
The hotel was really nice. Very conveniently located. Very near the office and more importantly, within walking distance to Shin Kong Place (http://www.shinkong-place.com/web-en/aboutus/aboutSKP.html), a real foodie paradise with tons of food options to choose from.
The room was standard Marriott. Not that I am complaining. Standard Marriott is really a compliment from my perspective.
Overall, a really nice hotel and it is good to know that I will be back there again next week. ;-)More
