This is the first trip to Beijing. Our family stayed at Beijing Sofitel. It is centrally located.
The porters are very attentive. I was particularly impressed with "Terry". He made sure our luggages are well taken care of into and out of hotel. He gave us some good histories on the local area. I particularly like his pleasing smile and kind attentiveness. He made our family feel right at home early in the morning and late at night when we come back.
The hotel is luxurious. It had eloquent decoration. Rooms are spacious. Quality of room materials are good, but had some dents/ scrapes. Overall, very good. View of the room is excellent up high. But there is major construction is going on next street. I am not sure what is going on there, but it is a behemoth big building foundation. I am not sure if the room view in that direction will be blocked by that building in the future. I hope not.
The breakfast is beyond "first class". The variety is the best we had in four five-star hotels we stayed in China. Considering we stayed at hotels use by "Ronald Reagan, Clintons, George Bush 1 & 2, and Obama", that is to say the food is truly "beyond first class". Mr. Frankel, the food manager usually strode by in the morning to make sure all things are taken care of. In short, excellent culinary experience.
Spa and swimming pool are not crowded. I used the swimming pool by myself early in the morning and at night. The plantetarium like ceiling lights which slowly change light every few minutes. That light setting makes swimming backstroke very enjoyable.
Over all, a great hotel. We will definitely come back here for our next Beijing trip.
