Hotel was extremely accommodating and had great service. We got upgraded to a suite which was huge and very well setup. Room was clean and quite. Also walking distance to Tienanmen Square and good restaurants.
Nice hotel on Jinbao street. Close to restaurants and malls in excellent, central area of Beijing. Good service with enough English-speaking personnel. Rather expensive on the extra services (food/beverage, laundry, transportation).
Although a +VIP Access hotel, I never received a room upgrade (this is not my first visit to the Regent) despite it being low season and having plenty of availability. In addition, I had to remind them of the F&B + Laundry discount which was not automatically applied at check-out and had to be manually entered for each applicable line.
Our room was wonderful and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was a great place to land after long days of touring. The staff was open about how best to navigate and what to see around Beijing. They coordinated taxis and a car trip to the Mutianyu wall that we will not forget and were always on hand when we needed suggestions. Great location, great place and terrific staff!

When think of Howard Johnson, i think go low budget and not so adequate. This hotel was the opposite. From the moment i walked in i was greeted by English Speaking staff, as well as smiling faces. When they noticed they made an error in my reservation, without hesitation upgraded my room, and apologized for any inconvenience. Room had an amazing view of Beijing Railway Station. If you're ever in the area this is the only place you should stay at.
An historical district, Dongcheng is home to a concentration of major sights and treasures including Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City (Palace Museum). To the south, discover Wangfujing Street, a famous shopping boulevard that sees mostly foot traffic only. Here, more than 200 old Beijing brands still reign supreme including the Wuyutai Tea House and Shengxifu hat store.
