Rated 2 out of 5 by Dilbert336 Aged Facilities
I had the unfortunate experience to lunch at the restaurant on the 21st floor where, in the heat of the Beijing summer, it has practically no air conditioning. I had to arrange for a fan to be sited next to me,
Even some parts of the Executive Floor, the air conditioning is very weak, and in the hot summer, the atmosphere is rather oppressive.
Some aged facilities could be tolerated but to expect your guest to accept poor air conditioning in summer is not acceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by whySPG not the best hotel to stay at
1. the front desk staff didn't know what she was talking about. She shoo me away when I asked if I can check in on the 17th floor since i booked the elite room. i repeated myself several times but she refused to acknowledge my question.
2. the swimming pool was in a bad shape.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Denny523 Unsatisfactory
For a 75 nights P member, in my recent two stays in this hotel, they haven't given me to upgrade to standard suite. One time they even gave me a two beds room. Unhappy, unsatisfactory!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Eziomax Sheraton must do better
The hotel facilities are old and they show all of their age.
On the back side there's an ex pool, empty and with all the floor crackled: a very bad image for the hotel, not reassuringly at all for customers.
The worst thing is the bad attitude of the personnel compared to other Sheraton, even in China.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jimtraveller The hotel is very tired (June 21st)
I stayed with my family in two rooms this time. The club floor room was MUCH nicer than the regular floor room, as we booked two different rooms with one being on the club floor (for paying for the club floor price) while the othe room on a lower floor.
This was my very first visit after my previous stay at this hotel in 2000. The lower floor does not seem to have gone through any renovation at all! The carpet in the hallway and in our room (the regular floor room) was stained and I am not sure whether it is clean or not.
The club lounge was closed and we were offered to use the "Elite" lounge. While the staff was friendly, the food offering was amongst some of the worst that I have ever experienced. The food is clean but the quality and choice is not the best.
I am using the standard based on my experience from all Sheraton Club Lounge, not even mentioning that this hotel's lounge is far behind any Sheraton club lounge in other asian locations, such as Bangkok, Singapore and Sydney.
I was very disappointed, as this is far below my impression and my expectation since my last visit to this hotel in 2000. I am almost disheartened.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wetravel ok, but does need improvement
I stay here several times a year because it is in a location that works for me, it is a category 2 Hotel and one can get reasonable SPG Point rates or point and cash rates. I do not book revenue rates here. There are better SPG Hotel nearby but I come back because it is reasonable and everyone knows this Hotel as it most be one of the oldest International Hotels in Beijing. As a Platinum member I do get Junior suite upgrades, but rooms are still small compared to other Hotels in city. The Club lounge is ok.

Hotel has been saying they will upgrade for 9 years, no upgrade in site. Perfect place to put employees that have no choice over their hotel, since it is the lowest price. Would never stay again myself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Maximus88 Good value but facility needs upgrading
The location is convenient and service quality is good as per Sheraton standard. However the hotel itself is a bit run-down. I tried going to swimming pool for a swim and gave up the idea when I saw there were molds on the swimming pool floor.
