The hotel is in a great location for tourists- walking distance to Wangfujing, Forbidden City, and Tienanmen Square. High end shopping arcade just downstairs- it's amazing how many fancy, name brand watch, fashion, and auto stores are in Beijing nowadays. Tons of traffic in Beijing so factor that in accordingly for travel to the airport, or restaurants and sights not immediately nearby. The service was up to Peninsula standards, with exceedingly polite staff with a decent grasp of English. However, the rooms, while completely adequate, don't quite meet the "luxury hotel" standard. The bathrooms and rooms are relatively small and showing some wear. The bathtub plug was not operative, the bed reading light flickered, and the wall button showing the outside temperature was broken. All minor annoyances, but indicative of a dated room. The gym was fine, and the indoor pool excellent. Did not use the spa, but have heard that it is fantastic. Ate at Jing for breakfast each day- the buffet has a large selection of Western and Chinese foods. Pastries and baked goods are not it's strong suit (or anywhere really in China), and the staff were easily confused. Considering that the rates are reasonable for a luxury hotel, I would recommend the Peninsula, particularly for sightseers.
