This is the first time I am staying at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang. It was not exactly the choice but my usual hotel in Beijing was full for the period I was there. Surprisingly it turned out to be easier to go to my office (it was a direct route by the very cheap but good China subway) than the previous hotel I stayed at.
In terms of surrounding areas, there are a few small shopping malls but if you are here to shop, you will be disappointed. There is a famous Peking Duck shop nearby which I will share a blog post later. There is a Subway right at the entrance (Liang Ma Qiao 亮马桥) which makes it convenient to go around Beijing.
The subway line is line 10.
Exit A at Liangmaqiao 亮马桥 will lead you to the hotel.
The lobby at Westin Beijing Chaoyang
The large lobby. Very nicely lit up.
And I cannot complained. I got an upgrade 🙂
One way to get better rooms at top hotels is to be an elite member. To have a quicker way to get to the elite member, you should sign up for the American Express Platinum Card !!
My Room at Westin Beijing Chaoyang
The view from my room is not bad too… day and night, there was traffic jam on that long road.. 🙂
The legendary bed at Westin hotels. Somehow I find I do sleep better at Westin hotels… (maybe it is just a fragment of my mind..)
Lovely big room.. for me..
The bathing and toilet area..
Lots of water.. nice touch !
Yes. There is a mouth wash !! YES ! 🙂
Two things I like about Westin Beijing Chaoyang
There are free movies in the room ! Lots of latest blockbuster movies in English and Chinese (and Cartoons !). You will not leave the room…
The service at this hotel is fantastic. As an example, I asked for some advice on what are the good places to go nearby. They did not just shared a few places. They even printed out the guides !! Amazing !!
This is a very very nice touch. I am so impressed by these and other small actions throughout the stay.
It is a good hotel. A nice stay at a good location for me.
