Crowne Plaza Beijing Sun Palace
Travel Blogs from Beijing
As with all big events there's the guarantee if some sort of snafoo at some stage on show day.

We headed in to work and continued rehearsals. The execs came in around 2pm and had a run through. Nothing dramatic... It'll all be over by 1130 tomorrow morning. It's hard to believe that we've …

TravelPod Member ReviewsCrowne Plaza Beijing Sun Palace
As one would expect in a Crowne Plaza Hotel the staff are extremely polite and helpful. The room was extremely comfortable and always exceptionally clean. The buffet was as to be expected with a wide range of breakfast options.
