Metropark Lido Hotel (Běijīng Lìdū wěijǐng jiǔdiàn) Review
In a leafy northeastern suburb of Beijing lies Lido Place, an enormous commercial and residential complex in which you'll find both the Metropark Lido (formerly a Holiday Inn) and a sense of puzzlement—namely a British-style pub, a Tex-Mex joint, and a buffet restaurant that makes this feel like Anywheresville. While this is a world away from the bustle of "real Beijing," the area's quieter roads and tree-lined streets offer a family-friendly alternative. Don't rush to judgment: The Metropark is a decent price for a comfortable stay, and especially handy if you want to be closer to the airport.
