Recent guest reviews
Excellent apartment, lots of space. Very comfy bed. Spectacular breakfast. Attentive and kind staff, very efficient. Very good for children. Walking distance from the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the shopping streets. Awesome!
Overall nice spacious apartments or small hotel suite. Could only find one person in the entire Hotel they could speak English and understand English. I'm always shocked at American hotel chains overseas when employees don't speak English. Hotel room service food was good, not great and the hotel itself has almost zero options for late-night dining or bars. Next to a super nice shopping center called WF Central with lots of restaurants and shops. The condition of the rooms are marginal, the first room we had had mold growing all over the bathroom and showers, all of the hardwood was scratched and the apartment was extremely Dusty like it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in months. Management and staff were very responsive to request including moving us to a different room second night serious the condition of the rooms are marginal, the first room we had had mold growing all over the bathroom and showers, all of the hardwood was scratched and the apartment was extremely dusty like it hadn't been thoroughly clean and months. Management and staff were very responsive to request including movie does to a different room second night. It was a great value but if I had to do it override probably stay at the JW Marriott or Ritz Carlton
My family and I (all 11 of us) were in China for my nieces college graduation. We took the bullet train from Shanghai to Beijing and I was happy to have reserved three, two bedroom apartments for the group. (My original reservation for two, three bedroom apartments at another Marriott property in the area was canceled a week out of my due date, so I was thankful Corporate Marriott could assist and this hotel was very accommodating in such short notice.) The apartments were very large, living space comfortable, the kitchen was nice, with dishwasher and washer/dryer. There was no detergent for either however so you will have to buy it or bring your own. The main living space and floors were dusty and not as clean as I’m used to for a Marriott, but overall, a nice place. Restaurant on site was good, variety of both American and Chinese cuisine, however, breakfast was buffet only and was pricey if you don’t eat much. Within walking distance to the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square- security is very tight in that area and you will need your passport or some form of identification to get tickets for the Forbidden City. Also, close to two big malls and a pedestrian mall with plenty of shops. The one mall has a Cheesecake Factory if you need a burger! The bathroom at the restaurant is lovely- (you will understand when you see the other local bathrooms!) In the Malls at Oriental Plaza is a local salon called Cutie Nails that I would recommend- Maria gave one of the best manicures I’ve ever had! There is also a pharmacy in there that opens before the mall does in case you need anything. The staff was helpful and accommodating! Would return again.
-If you are looking for the best location in Beijing, you have found your spot! Highly suggest staying here if you are visiting as a tourist. Super close to the Beijing night markets and the Forbidden City. Walking distance to most of the hot spots. -The rooms are MASSIVE! Tons of space in your room with great showers and amenities. -The staff were lovely, but we did have a hard time communicating - their English was broken, but we made things work with Google Translate app. They were very helpful in getting us taxis and pointing us in the right direction. -Breakfast was AMAZING! Tons of options for all travelers - we ate a large breakfast each day and it lasted us for hours and hours. -The hotel has a spa near the fitness center - it was very nice and we used it a couple times! The fitness center was very nice as well. -Would highly recommend staying here in Beijing if you are looking for a very nice hotel in an excellent location. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
First, the hotel staff are delightful, helpful and speak pretty good English. This is extremely helpful when asking for help or recommendations. However, some things I was surprised about being a loyal Marriott member: *There is no coffee in the lobby. If you want coffee beyond the two cups you’re allotted, you must either pay for the capsules that fit in your machine or wait until the restaurant opens at 6:30am. (There is however a McDonald’s up the street which is open 24hours or a Dunkin’ Donuts which opens at 10:00am.) *Restaurant is good. Buffet for breakfast is also good at $22 dollars. You cannot order a la carte. It’s the buffet or nothing. Washer/Dryer did not work well. Washer washed, dryer, washed. I’ve had one of these machines so I’m familiar with how they work. A little frustrating. Kitchen essentials. There are no sharp knives but plenty of pots pans, dishes, cups and glasses. They do not give you dishwasher soap or dishwashing liquid nor did the cleaning people run the dishwasher so I’m not sure what you are expected to do when here for an extended period. Buy it or bring it yourself? There are paper towels which is a bonus! No tee-towels or sponges. Very strange. The kitchen garbage can is the size of an American powder room trash can. This is also strange. Cleanliness is not of an American Marriott standard. Floors were dusty, kitchen cabinets were grimy. Some of the floor moldings were pulled away from the wall. Again, being a loyal Marriott guest, my expectations were high. The positives - the location of the hotel is perfect. Much is within walking distance. The two bedroom suites are enormous with plenty of room. The bathrooms are beautiful with a large soaking tub in the master. Showers are roomy and amazing. Lots of closet space and storage. Beds and mattresses are very comfortable. I rate this as average based on my personal (American) Marriott expectations.
As a background, we were a party of 13 coming off a two week cruise. I booked the two bedroom apartments. Mainly for the washing machine and dryer! The apartment was extremely spacious and was far better than we expected to be honest. Fresh fruit was delivered on arrival with apple juice and Pepsi. There was a lovely freestanding bath in the main room. Great blackout curtains and clean kitchen. It had a beautiful foyer area and was very well located being close to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden Palace. A great choice over all.
We had a lovely one bedroom apartment - spacious and very well set up, with a kitchen/dining/living room area; and a separate bedroom and large bathroom with separate shower. Breakfast in the dining room was satisfactory, with a chef making omelettes, fried eggs, etc. The apartments are located conveniently near a main shopping street, and within walking distance of the Forbidden City. There is a small "7/11" type store just around the corner, but it was too tiny to be of use for buying food to prepare a simple dinner in the apartment. They sold white bread sandwiches in plastic containers, and sweet fizzy drinks (but no soda). Nothing vegetarian as far as I could tell. We were told the nearest supermarket was a taxi ride away. There is a tube station close by, and we used it to return from the Summer Palace. All in all a good choice, although I was disappointed in being unable to find Western style food to bring back to the apartment for dinner.
The rooms are large but deserve a long overdue renovation. The lighting is depressing. The view from the window is depressing - you are basically facing a wall There is a small balcony but the door is locked. The decoration is cheap. The breakfast is equivalent to a three / four star Chinese hotel. So apart from the location, which is great, and the fact that the rooms are really large, I don't recommend at all. First time I do not go to Opposite House in Beijing, and I really regret it.
Had a large one bedroom apartment that was spacious! Large bedroom and a very large living room with its own work area and kitchen. This is not a hotel with many on site amenities, but does have a large lap pool and does have daily maid service. Location is very good, close to many shops/restaurants. Some language barriers with the staff, but they were all very accommodating.
Now my review of The Imperial Mansion Beijkng Marriot might be too subjective and not fair since we arrived from Osaka Marriot which was mind blowing 5 star hotel. Arrived at 9pm, taxi dropped us off nearby..it was dark and The Imperial Mansion was still hard to find.. lighting outside is poor but thats just China.. Arrive at recpetion, staff were pleasant and told us we got upgraded to premium apartment which was nice to hear.. Out apartment was on 5th floor, absolutely huge with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and a living room. It had 2 tv and other little gadgets however signs of weardown were sighted. Kitchen doors were falling aparts, mould could be seen around shower and it appeared that the rooms are not cleaned to the beat standards- at least Marriot standards. Rooms were cleaned every morning, service was good and staff were always helpful. Concierge were helpfull especially I think his name was Andrew or similar... I will be rude enough to say that the breakfast selection was bad! Limited food, not tasty at all. Tables not cleaned often, food could be seen on the floor and nobody would clean it. Walls appeared to be dirty, just a feeling you get whn you come inside - dirty. The place needs a renovation and staff at the restaurant - a wake up call. There is a swimming pool to enjoy. The hotel offers english paper, China Daily etc.. Staff are helpful and will organise tours for you which have been a good deal.. The hotel has a good location to visit other points of interest, shopping malls (which were expensive).. There is a little convinience store next door, count your change please.. There are no larger supermarkets kn the area, we spent 4 days but couldnt find any nearby. Wifi is good Overall I recommend the stay but it is not 5 star hotel but rather 4.
