Nice rooms and a nice location. Some colleagues stayed at another hotel nearby, they paid more and the service was no where close to as good as the Crowne Plaza. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Beijing.

Bed and pillow where one of the most comfortable ones I've been in. Breakfast buffet has a nice spread of Chinese and American choices.
Staff cleaning the hotel have great attention to detail. Everything is placed very orderly upon my return which includes any items in the floor, desk, chair or bed (ie shoes, clothes, pens, money, etc). Even though I try to not waste and use as little as their daily provided amenities, by the 3rd day, they dumped their provided toothbrush, tooth paste, shaver, cream, soap, towels, etc and provided me with new ones. Bottled water is complimentary and plenty. Gym staff would approach you with towels and water, or help you with any of the equipment.

Hotel is clean, spacious, hotel staff are lovely - very friendly and able to speak English quite clearly. The room was great! the bathroom was humungous and very clean.
It is a little further out from the city - however if you are willing to take a subway or taxi this is not at all a problem - the hotel staff will help you print out the address of your destination and will tell the taxi driver to ensure there is no miscommunication.
There are restaurants nearby and a shopping mall - will definitely stay there again.

The hotel has great views of Olympic park, especially at night, and is near by a shopping mall in the park with restaurants. The Expedia rate was great, and including breakfast is a good deal when added to the room rate. Restaurants at the hotel are very nice, but very expensive. Breakfast was very good.
Wifi connection was strong, but connections to US web sites is slow, and many are blocked by firewall in China. It worked well for email and news sites, not a lot else.

Our room was comfortable with a huge comfortable queen size bed that came with 4 pillows. Bathroom was nice with marble floors and walls, complete with a tub and separate shower and separate toilet! But looks were somewhat deceiving as the toilet stopped flushing twice. Having a separate shower was great, except the water doesn't drain completely after use and water sometimes seeped out into the adjacent toilet area. In the room itself, your treated to a nice sized LCD TV with loads of channels, but I wish they had more English channels....there's only so much Discovery channel you can watch at night. As for other hotel amenities, the indoor heated pool was nice as there's almost never people in it. There's also 3 restaurants inside, Thai, Chinese and an international buffet. Weirdest thing though was every floor we went to smelled like cat urine in the morning. Strange...but overall the stay was comfortable.
But the problem is location. It's in a quiet more residential district that's far from central Beijing. Although it's on the main artery, it's about 40min from the airport, so getting to Tian'anmen square takes almost 25 min by bus. The bus stop is about 3 min walk but the nearest subway was about a 10 min walk. Best suggestion if you want to take the subway, is to take the bus 1 stop to the Wukesong station. Good food is rare here as well. But I guess you get what you pay for.
