Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CK88 Great location, great service
Reception staff spoke fluent English. A hotel close to wangfujing shopping street. Rooms were kind of old and jaded though. Too many mirrors... A bit spooky....Especially when the hotel has a sudden power failure just after mid night!.. Fresh fruit plate everyday, and wifi in room, which is great. Overall a good place to put up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AntonioZ Three stays in two weeks
I was in China on business for two weeks and was traveling in and out of Beijing. I had flights and trains to various other parts of China but would return after two days. Each time, the staff and concierge were a great help in arranging my transportation to and from the airport, train station, etc. They were also able to store some of my luggage so I only had to travel with the bag I needed for the two day trip. Salinee and Jason at the front desk were very attentive and went out of their way to help with my various business needs.

Wonderful experience with the Crowne Plaza Wangfujing. The room was comfortable, quite, and cool. Hotel was short walk to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Great location for downtown business or sightseeing. I hope you love it as much as I did.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FrenchTraveler Nice experience but some negative points
I enjoyed my stay in this hotel, even of some pros and cons. The hotel was nice, even if our first room wasn't : the decoration was old, we were next to an AC which made a lot of noise, the shower was broken and the bed was uncomfortable and small. We ask for another room, this one was much better, quiet and comfortable, but we needed to be upgraded for this room, this staff understood and have upgraded us for free. Concerning my overall experience it was good, but some points wasn't : we couldn't enjoy the pool because of the cold temperature of the water, the food wasn't as good as expected for a five stars hotel, but the prices were correct. Secondly, I was a disappointed by the fact that the staff only speak to my companion because is a man even if the reservation was under my name. Moreover, I think the hotel is closer to be a four stars than a five stars. Finally, event the staff's efforts their english wasn't good enough and sometimes we had some trouble to communicate with them; furthermore even if we had a quiet room we had a view on a parking … .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AKWY Great location, but not for business travel
The computer in the business center or club lounge are so out-dated and should replace with new one. I asked for a computer with view camera, sorry no. What about the function for microphone and speaker, the answer is also no.
Can't imagine nowadays how hotel can stay competitive with such obsolete equipment!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TennisFan2 Excellent hotel
I booked the hotel based on its location. I only had two nights in Beijing, so I wanted to stay near Wangfujing. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. I was greeted as a platinum member as soon as I arrived. The front dest staff were patient and courteous. All my needs were accommodated. My room (630) was newly renovated, contemporary, and meticulously maintained. Prior to booking the hotel, I read some reviews about the inefficient AC. I had no issues in my room. The AC worked beautifully in my room. The breakfast was adequate, could be better. I had a pleasant stay.

Hotel was fine and the location was good, but it was the club level lounge that was of real value. Very nice breakfast and happy hour.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BerlinMike My Beijing Choice
I stayed at this hotel the third time and this shows already, how much I like that hotel! Not only the staff is very friendly, it´s also clean, it has a quiet atmosphere and the service is great. The staff at the reception speaks fluent english, they are quickly processing both the checkin and checkout. The room service doesn´t push you to leave the room, they slide a nice notice under your door that they would love to clean up the room but couldn't if they see the "do not disturb" signal at the room door. This time I didn't try the WLAN in the room because it is relatively expensive (compared to other hotels I stayed in China (such as Shenyang Kempinski), but you can use the free WLAN in the lobby, which is speedy and the coverage is quite sufficient even in the surrounding restaurants. By the way, I tried all 3 in-house restaurants: the steak house -> excellent!, the buffet -> good choice of both Chinese and Western dishes, and the Chinese restaurant at the 1st floor. All in all a hotel to recommend for those who like to spend a couple of days in Beijing's central area, in a 3-min walking distance to one of Beijing's biggest Apple stores and of course the famous Wangfujing shopping street. You can enjoy the way down to the subway line 1 in Oriental plaza for those who are not in a hurry. I forgot: if you´re tired from walking or shopping or whatever, you will definitely like the bed, which is just perfect for me: not too soft and not too hard. I will definitely come back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mickpamg Well Located
Really enjoyed our stay, reasonable walk to Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. There are some good restaurants nearby.
The breakfast buffet was varied and fresh. Our room was comfortable and large. It was clean and tidy.
The staff were very helpful and courteous.
On the downside some training on making a strong cappuccino would be appreciated. The room internet connection was weak, but it worked. We also thought the cost of a coffee, beer or wine in the lounge was so expensive as too force us to drink elsewhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Editslob Huge Bathroom
For my family we had a Club king room and the bathroom was larger than the bedroom area. We enjoyed our stay, the room was comfortable, but the pool area was small for family fun. The staff made good attempts to meet our needs. The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of selections from pasteries to omelets.

A great location for business and leisure stay in Beijing, in an area that you could get into the many of popular tourist areas within 15 minutes. Also to many of the key business area within 20 minutes. Great location for business and leisure combo activities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Medman Wow ... what a change ....
I have not stayed at this hotel for over three years ... reasons were simple ... staff was discourteous, room was horrible, non-recognition of Ambassador level ... told would need to pay a daily fee for use of lounge, no room upgrade etc
But this trip it was best location for my appointments ... so ... I decided to just grin and bear it ... and I am glad I did ... what a change ... the staff were incredible, helpful, attentive, kind, friendly and actually taking an interest in my well being ... a complete 180 degree turn around ... the room was great (clean, comfortable) ... I will be back ... often!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KathyHef Best Breakfast Buffet Ever
This was the best breakfast buffet I have even eaten in my life. In addition to traditional American fare, the Chinese, Indian, and other dishes were outstanding. Variety and quality were top notch. Staff was very helpful. I needed a driver to drive me to the Great Wall and wait while I hiked for a couple of hours, and the concierge provided a safe, English-speaking person. Very pleased with the food and personnel who work here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jr668 Great Hotel at great price
My family visited Beijing this summer and we compared several hotels in Beijing and selected Crown Plaza for its location and value. The room is very clean and the hotel staff is very friendly too. The hotel sits at the best location in Beijing and it is convenient for shopping and many other popular tourist places. I woud say if you know Beijing well, you will find great values with better foods than the hotel restraurants, but you would hardly find a hotel of better overall value than Crown Plaza in Wangfujing Street.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pdbourke Good hotel but need improving
Generally a good place to stay, good quality rooms.
However, I fail to see why hotels charging as they do need to add additional charges for internet access, after all it cost them almost nothing.
Breakfast food quality and service was only average.
Suggest front desk staff were not very friendly.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Patatone138 Position, staff and food good, but hotel more 3 star than 5 star
We found the staff good and helpful and the food very good. The situation in Beijing is excellent and very well placed for sightseeing and shopping. Our disappointments were as follows:
1. We had to complain on two consecutive days about the cleanliness of the room. In the end the housekeeping manager oversaw a thorough clean.
2. Despite asking three times, the staff 'forgot' that our rail tickets had been delivered to the hotel and had to be reminded by the deliverer.
3. There were inadequate numbers of staff in the restaurant and reception at 0630.
4. The general state of the hotel furnishings and decor suggest a refurbishment is overdue.
Overall it did not achieve a 5 star rating in our view.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mkeith Average property
I stayed at several IHG properties around the world as well as China. This is the first property that doesn't allow platinum members access to club lounge. If platinum membership is not enough for this property, I am not sure what is.
I was told that I was upgraded to a "deluxe" room. However the room and amenities were very average. I was promised that welcome amenity would be delivered to my room. Nothing was delivered. The next day I received a plate with an apple and a pear..
Will not be returning to this hotel. I will stay somewhere where my loyalty is more appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kirsten70 Helpful Staff!
My family reserved 3 rooms for 3 nights. They were all well supplied and comfortable. The location was perfect for sight seeing and ease of getting around. The staff was very helpful! They helped us hire a driver, recommended restaurants and made us feel welcome. One of our children got sick during the night and the staff was quick to help us and professional. We also enjoyed the breakfast every morning. There were choices everyone enjoyed!
