I have stayed here 3 times, twice in 2006 and once this year. It has consistently been a good hotel for my home base. The overall construction is on the older side and could use carpet upgrade in the hallways, but the beds are the best - down, silk, sparkling clean white bedding, and soft as a cloud. The morning buffet is a must. A great way to start each busy day. The other hotel restaurants should be avoided. There are tours available to the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, etc; sign up in the lobby for the next morning. Neighborhood restaurants - try Susan's - very good. Shopping accross the street from the hotel at Sisters will get you the best bargains. The cab rides are VERY reasonable. I am going again in the fall.
