Supersized convention hotel in central Beijing

This 916-room hotel opened in 1987 and remains one of the largest convention hotels in Beijing. The amphitheater-like lobby previews the opulence of the vast formal halls and public spaces throughout the hotel and convention center. Eye-catching design in updated executive rooms competes with the city views outside. This 29-story property in Central Beijing lies between the Financial District and Forbidden City.

Highlights
  • Convention center with extensive facilities
  • Eight dining outlets include a rotating restaurant
  • Stylish executive rooms updated in 2007
  • Halfway between Forbidden City and Financial District
Rooms

All 916 rooms include safe, mini-bar, satellite channels and high-speed Internet. Standard rooms measure 279 square feet, deluxe rooms 430 square feet, and suites start at 667 square feet. Décor in standard and business rooms is mostly functional with white linens and beige carpet and walls. Executive rooms were renovated in 2007 and feature soft celadon and stone colors with silver accents and sleek contemporary furniture. Updated bathrooms have a glass shower, huge soak tub, and glass window looking out to city views.

Dining

Three of eight restaurants focus on high-end Chinese delicacies like shark fin and abalone. Tan Restaurant serves Shandong and Sichuan specialties and resembles a nobleman's courtyard house with elaborate wooden screens, enormous landscape paintings, and delicate lanterns. Shanghai Pavilion evokes the Jazz Age heyday of Old Shanghai. Starlight Revolving Restaurant on the 28th floor makes a 360-degree rotation every 110 minutes.

Good location, but did not honor free extra bed requested

Requested extra bed + Non-smoking room when I reserve the hotel without extra cost. But when I check in, the hotel want to charge REM 330 (about $50 USD) for the extra bed. They told me the bed is not guaranteed but will be available with extra charge. Be aware of request free of charge on this hotel, since they did not honor my request.

A Gem in Beijing

We were surprised at the amenities, condition, appointments, furnishing, upkeep, cleanliness, size of the room and attention to detail. Perhaps it was because the staff upgraded our room. Still, we think a regular room would be just as comfortable. The overall atmosphere of the hotel is very nice, well maintained and spacious. Great value! We got our room at 50% off.

Across the street (thru Metro tunnel) and around the corner, there are lots of eateries that will not cause an arm and a leg.

I would not classify this as a 5 Star hotel

We stayed here as during the Beijing part of our 7 day tour (both before for 3 nights and after 1 night). Although the reception areas were plush, the rooms were very ordinary and the bathrooms were not well maintained (for a 5 star hotel). We found alot of the the reception staff couldn't speak english and were quite rude (this compared with staff at a 4 Star Xian hotel which spoke very good english and we extremely helpful#. You can't #or that's what we were told# book taxi's and had to wait in the taxi queue outside the hotel - we waited 45 mins for a taxi and therefore couldn't make it to the restaurant we originally wanted to go to #restaurants close really early for a capital - 9 or 10pm#. We couldn't find the conceirge to help us with restaurant recommendations and other staff very unhelpful. We asked which buses went up to Wangfujing #shopping street) and were told none but later we figured out at least 2 did. I would not stay here again and would not recommend this to others.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Quite a lot of restaurants close really earlier (9pm or 10pm) so take this into account. We had quite long days on our tour and by the time we got to the hotel and freshened up, alot of the restaurants were shut.

The inconvenience of room switches located throughout the room. Not having a centralized switch near the bed. No alarm. Curtains torn and old.

my hotel stay in June 14

Although hotel is huge and consider to be 5* in our understanding it is 3* and hospitality is average. Service do not speak English and cleanness of the room desires better. Air conditioning is playing up Reception was not that enthusiastic and very money driven. Hardly speaks English Feels like hotel is focusing on Convention and parties rather than guests. Costs in Hotel bars and restaurant is outrageous. Glass of Ginger-ale $9.00US. Most services are extra costs, the pool water is cold. Business center internet is costly Taxis don't know this hotel whereabouts and don't like using meters. My experience is average.
