Once placing high on lists of top Beijing hotels, this place now does opulence in a rather unsubtle way—gold highlights in the lobby; marble tubs in the luxe rooms; high-priced fine dining—but it still just about lives up to its look: the service is slick, the restaurants are very good (Aria, serving contemporary European cuisine, is particularly special), and the attached mall/cinema is a welcome escape. It's no surprise that during conferences and exhibitions, business travelers pack its modern, well-appointed rooms.

I have stayed at this hotel three times and have nothing but glowing remarks. The rooms are big and bathrooms are spectacular with separate walk-in showers. Beds are incredibly comfortable and the service levels are exceptional. You can walk to Silk Alley which is helpful when you have a lot of business meetings but need to pick up gifts for everyone back home. Great bar for drinks and entertaining too.
