TravelPod Member ReviewsShangri-La Hotel Beijing
This hotel has it all for westerners traveling in the East. The chef is a genius, and the food was probably our favorite part of our stay. The buffet restaurant was incredible, and we also enjoyed a dinner at Blu Lobster, which we commented may have had the best service we had ever experienced (and we are foodies who have eaten at several Michelin rated gourmet restaurants). Every staff member we encountered spoke English and greeted us with a warm "Good afternoon". Our bed was dreamy, we loved the tv in the bathroom mirror, and the room was very large with a walk-in closet. Overall, the location wasn't very close to the Forbidden City, but we didn't care, we took tours and taxis. Our view wasn't special either, but again, no big deal - we'd rank the view and the service as a much higher priority.
