The hotel is located in a very large estate, and the hotel buildings are not tall. Most blocks are connected in the basement so there is no need to suffer the cold weather when heading for breakfast.
Check in was efficient though the front desk staff could have been friendlier. The lobby is large and pleasant with a nice feature Koi pond. Access to the restaurant for breakfast is via a staircase to a floor below.
We stayed in the two storey suite so our room was situated in another block. The room is very large and spacious. The staircase was a little too light duty for our liking, it shook when we walked on it. Furnishing is conservative but pleasant. Two flat screen TVs one downstairs and one upstairs. Air con is very efficient. The bed was a little too firm for our liking but otherwise comfortable. We expected a pull out bed because the booking system showed a 5 person capacity, however there was no such luck. Our kids had to sleep on the sofa. Cleanliness was good.
Breakfast food quality was very nice and extensive. Staff were efficient though not very friendly. On two out of three days they were not friendly while on the last day they were most helpful and friendly. Must have been different shifts working.
The swimming pool is nice, indoor with heating and warm water. There is a shower round the corner so it is quite convenient. The gym overlooks the pool.
There are some eateries outside around the hotel within walking distance. Watch out for dog pooh on the pavement.
Late check out at 4pm. Check out was fast and efficient and staff were friendly. Again must have been different shifts.
First time staying in this part of Beijing, traffic was very acceptable, not too bad a jam getting to the hotel, and not too bad a jam getting out to the airport.
Overall good experience.
