Olympic park hotel on its post-Olympic years

It's not bad. This hotel is right next to the Bird's Nest stadium (literally a stone's throw), and across the Olympic park from the China National Convention Center. If you need to be at those places and don't mind a walk across the concrete wasteland that is the Olympic park, this is a pretty good hotel. The hotel feels (in August 2012) like it used to be a Hilton or Sheraton, but was sold to a local firm after the 2008 Olympics and has been on a long slow decline since then. Nothing bad, just lots of run down and worn edges - carpets worn through in spots, stuck hinges, shabby towels, that sort of stuff. HIgh marks to the super-nice staff - they were always friendly, cheerful, and good-intentioned, if not always successful. A tip: Do NOT let them stick you in a Smoking room if you're not a smoker. I should have made a fuss about this but I was tired when I checked in, took what they said was available, and regretted it.

4-star hotel

It is technically a 4-star hotel. However, if you want to save more money, then go (literally) across the street - there are 3-4 hotels there, which are much cheaper. Wi-Fi is tolerable for 1-on-1 videochat, breakfast is not included by default and would be costly as an addition. Good location for CNCC - 15 minute walk cutting through the stadium. This hotel was one of very few available options for last-minute reservations. Staff would happily ignore Do Not Disturb light. Kettle in the room makes a difference, since one can't drink tap water.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a supermarket WuMart nearby - I was getting ham/yoghurt/juice/bread there for breakfasts.
