Crowne Plaza Beijing Wangfujing
Ranked #69 of 6,531 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed 22 November 2008

I booked this hotel through a air/hotel package through the Cathay Pacific Holiday website, and for its location.

I found the room quite lovely, and I would not consider it being small. It's been renovated in 2005 as mentioned and everything looks new. One thing I am not too crazy about is the frosted glass wall between the bathroom and the main room. If someone goes to the bathroom at night and turn on the light, it may bother another person who is still sleeping.

We utilized their main buffet restaurant every morning as it's included in the package. The staff was quite pleasant overall, but can be inconsistant depending on which staff you get. The selection is satisfactory, with lots of pastry items, cook-to-order omlette, chinese congee items, and fresh fruits. However, you won't find any "wow" factors here.

Location is good, but not as great as I expected. If you are comfortable walking, and your main objective is sight-seeing around the Wangfujin area, this is the place. But if it's not, the transportation in Beijing is so good that there are many choices (plus quite a few great restaurants I love are not close to this hotel) out there that may offer more values for the money. Having said that, I would not have any problems recommending this hotel to others.

I am not impressed with this hotel for the price! Like many of the the chinese people in Wangfujing area (what we now call "screw the foreigners" area)--the hotel front desk staff incessantly tries to sell you extras on top of your room--upgrades etc.

The hotel has small rooms that are dated and not so clean carpets....no extras....and is in general a mediocre "holiday inn"--nothing special!

The only reason to stay here is to stay in the area. BUT I am sure you can get a better deal at one of the many adjacent hotels.

If you are doing business at the convention center this is the place to stay. Convienent location to the center and airport, great food and helpful staff.
I stayed on the executive floor - it was worth the few extra bucks. Downtown is about 30 minutes away depending on the time of day.

I had stayed at this hotel before but never realized that there are two types of rooms. The majority have a window looking out at the street while some overlook the hotel bar area. I found that there was little sound proofing in these rooms. Hearing the music from the hotel bar is not the biggest issue. Having to continuously hear your neighbour speak and cough in annoying. The problem is mostly but, not only, due to the single door between communicating rooms as you get a lot of noise from the corridors. You have to hope that your neighbours are not on their honeymoon.
As a platinum member of the Priority club i was given an upgrade. it makes me wonder what a lesser rooom would look like. The basement maybe?
The hotel location is good as you can walk to the subway and Forbidden city from there (but a good walk). The annoying thing is that you need to walk through the scammers and ladies offering "lady massage" to make it to your hotel. At least the very obvious hotel security keeps them out of the hotel lobby - possibly to protect their own massage business......

Good room, very good bed, nice bathroom, great breakfast. Location is top: right within main shopping area, within walking distance to forbidden city, tianmen square etc. Friendly, helpful and competent concierge-team. We were very happy with our choice.

This is a "Classical" Crown Plaza, that you cannot compare to some of the newer Design Hotels, that might exist now in China as well (?).
