Reviewed 17 June 2009

its a solid four star, not five. like all chinese hotels, slightly rough around the edges but overall just fine unless you are dismayed about the light fixture being off centre in the washrooms sorta thing.
very good location. mediocre gym. helpful staff. great breakfast buffet (normally included in room price). great shopping near by. people who complain about this place are whiners. I wouldn't hesistant too stay here again.

I booked here for three nights in May 2009. Several years earlier, I had stayed here and had an enjoyable time. I thought it would be the same this time.

However, the atrium smells awful. Every morning, at about 5 am to 6am as the kitchen staff began setting up for the buffet breakfast, there would be an awful smell pervading the entire 8-story atrium. It was a fast food odor and a burned cooking oil smell. The odor stayed in the atrium for hours at a time.

I was disappointed that the management didn't aerate the area, or at least have the common sense to release a pleasant fragrance to cover up the cooking odors.

We had the pleasure of staying at this facility when we were recently in Beijing. We booked 5 days and could have stayed longer. The staff were excellent - spoke English very well, rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. We did upgrade to the Executive CLub and epecially enjoyed the private lounge for breakfast and meeting other interesting people from different parts of the world.
There are upscale shops with in 1/2 block, the famous "out door market place" is 2 blocks away and there are ample opportunities to just walk and enjoy the sites.
While we were staying at the Crowne Plaza I felt very comfortable out side walking by myself (female) and did not feel the least bit worried about my personal safety (just be a smart traveler) . Beijing is beautiful and the there was absolutely no smog there and the streets are extremely clean as well as the public places everywhere. Would we stay here again certainly

My wife and I recently came back from a 3 week trip and were in Beijing for 1 week. We stay at “Crowne Plaza Beijing” in the month April 2009. The hotel is located at 48 Wangfujing Ave. Dong Cheng District or (北京王府井大街 48号). The name of the hotel in Chinese is “北京国际艺苑皇冠假日酒店”

The location is great as its in Wangfujing area. The hotel is located on the corner of Dengshikou street and Wangfujing Ave. The main entrance of the hotel is facing the Dengshikou side. It’s a little walk to the eat street and there is a 24hr McDonald about 1.5 blocks to the left of the hotel in you are exiting the hotel (exit hotel then turn right to Wangfujing Ave then make a left) and make a quick left on Wangfujing Ave. The eat street is a little further down on the same direction. The Dengshikou street has a lot of food and banks for retrieving money from ATMs. We retrieved money from the bank which was one block to the left coming out from the main entrance. There is also a cheap Chinese food 24hr place where is about 3 block down. Going a bit more on Dengshikou for another 2 blocks will bring you to the “Dengshikou” MTR station which is very convenient to get to some locations. If I remember this correctly, its MTR line number 5.

If you walk on exit out of the hotel and turn right to Wangfujing Ave. and then make a left, I think its about 5 blocks you will find the famous peking duck house called “Quan Ju De peking Duck ( 全聚德烤鸭店 ) (东城区王府井大街帅府园胡同9号)”. Across from that is a traditional Tianjin dumpling house call Goubuli restaurant.

The hotel is nice and the room is pretty spacious. The view from the room is not bad as you can see Wangfujing Ave. The best part is the elevators up and down which shows off the nice lobby and the lobby restaurant. We had a king bed which was very comfortable, the blankets was nice and the room did not have any odor. The bath room was clean and spacious. It looks very nice with the tiles and colors. The shower pressure was great. Its weird that the safe was not bolted down as anyone could have took it and carried it away. Plenty of out lets with the USA 2 prong outlet. Hair dryer is in the room. The other stuff is similar to other hotels.

The atm at this hotel is not longer available. The internet is not free as the charge is 120RMB per day or 2.3 RMB per minute. There are lots of cabs out the front exit. There are maps of the city available in the hotel as it helped me get around a lot. You can negotiate with cabs to take you to great wall for around 500RMB per day.

We liked this hotel a lot and will stay here again. But the stuff around Wangfujing Ave is pricy compare to other areas. But you are in the central location and its worth the stay if you like the Wangfujing area. Hopefully there are deals where its about 500RMB per night which is about what we paid.

Last October we stayed at the Embassy Suites for 4 nights as a base to explore Beijing. There is a lot to like about this hotel! The rooms are American style with all the standard amenities, including queen size beds. We thoroughly enjoyed the very large breakfast buffet with multiple choices, fresh squeeze oj, and hand made omlettes (for us, it was included in our room rate). So overall, an excellent choice.

We agree too, with some of the watch-outs of previous posters. First, be leary of the scantily clad women wandering the halls and elevators offering massage on the top floor. It didn't scare us as it is not the really bad thing we heard about in other hotels -- we just said 'no' and were left alone -- we only saw this on one night, Friday night. Also, the bellmen offer tourist services, but everything is marked up. You are better off using your guidebooks and booking on your own as English is spoken in Beijing and is not that bad (the rural areas, it can be more difficult). Also since the location is right in the middle of the Wafjung district, be prepared to be approached at night by a few shady characters offering prostitution. Again, it wasn't bad and cops were out -- we never felt not safe in this area of town.

The location is the best in the city, with Tianamen and everything else in walking distance. Book here with the confidence of American luxury in a foreign local.
