Pricey, Dated Hotel Jun 17, 2011
Stayed at this hotel when I went to Beijing for four days. It's a decent hotel and all employees are friendly and courteous. The place does look dated because of the decor and it's a little far from everything, but taxi rides are quite affordable.

When I first got to my room, the thing that came to mind was how small it was. The bathroom has bath/shower and a low ceiling that I would always hit when using the shower hose. The ceiling needed to be cleaned a bit, but the bathroom was clean otherwise. The room has a older 4:3 tv, a mini fridge, in-room safe, desk, a couch, and a queen sized bed. An ethernet cable is provided, but internet use isn't free, unless you're using wifi in the lobby.

The hotel was clean for the most part. It has a small workout center, massages (in-room if requested), and a small swimming pool that seemed a bit dirty because of odd stains on the pool walls. There is live music performance in the evening at the bar, a couple restaurants, a small coffee shop, and a travel tour desk.

I thought that this Sheraton was overpriced and was not worth the money I spent. I would probably not stay here again.

Excellent home base in Beijing Jul 26, 2007
While a little pricy ( I paid around $200 a night with tax), this hotel offers a lot!

First, the location. Conveniently located for access to the city via taxi, also located right next to the Hard Rock Cafe. Never had any problems getting a taxi to take me wherever I needed to go!

Next, the restaurants. Breakfast was excellent in the silk road trattoria, and the Peking Duck at the 21st Floor Restaurant is one of the best in the city!

The rooms are what you can expect from a luxury Sheraton location. Very comfortable and an excellent night's sleep! All amenities present. Internet does cost extra, but is available.

The best item for me was the travel counter. Through the hotel's on site travel desk, I was able to book tours to the Great Wall / Ming Tombs and the Forbidden City / Temple of Heaven / Summer Palace. I managed to parlay these tours into a third day of tours in the hutong area and vsrious siights in the north of the city with the people I met on the first two days of tours.

If you're looking for a nice home base from which to explore the city and join on a couple of ad-hoc tours, then I would recommend this hotel with no qualms at all!

Excellent Location to See The Great Wall Jan 25, 2007
This hotel is in a very good location to visit the Great Wall. The hotel was able to arrange a very affordable tour for three of us to get out there. The drive was under an hour and the cost nominal.

The rooms were luxurious with high-end bedding and every amenity. The hotel is just a block from the Hard Rock Beijing for those that like to visit those restaurants.

Everyone at the hotel were pleasant and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was very good and at a good price.

I believe our room rate was under $100.00 U.S.

Overall, you can't beat this location.
