the ascott - great beijing business hotel
If you are planning a business trip to Beijing, China, chances are you might want to stay near the central business district. If you're looking for very comfortable, business-oriented accommodations that are also a good value, consider the Ascott Beijing.
The Ascott is highly conscious of the business traveler's needs and maintains apartment-like suites, complete with workable kitchens. On a recent stay, we had a wonderful suite, consisting of a large living room area with sofa, chairs, coffee table and entertainment center (large flatscreen tv, dvd, stereo/cd player all at the ready), a kitchen complete with fridge and stove, plates, glasses, flatware and coffee maker, good size bedroom with another large flatscreen tv, reading lights, plenty of storage, internet access, and a full bathroom with shower, bathtub, and all the amenities. Included in the room is daily maid service, as well as items for your convenience such as ironing board and iron, good for quick pressings before a meeting.
Some plans at the Ascott also include breakfast at the restaurant in the building. The lobby is attractive, with a water feature out front that provides a soothing atmosphere, and other amenities such as an indoor pool, gym, spa offering, and a few shops in the buidings and very close by make this an easy place to get what you need without much traveling around. If you've ever been in Beijing traffic, then you know that's not a small plus.
The Ascott has suites that have multiple bedrooms, great if you're traveling with others on business. The location is near the train station or the doorman will hail you a taxi and the wait, if any, is not long.
The Ascott group calls itself "the world's largest international serviced residence owner-operator with over 19,000 operating serviced residence units in key cities of Asia Pacific, Europe and the Gulf region." They also have several new units under development. If you are staying in one of the areas they service for business, or even for pleasure, it's worth taking a look and comparing them to your other potential options.
