Overall this hotel isn't located near anything big, so if you are going to China for sightseeing I wouldn't recommend it.
However compared to the population in China, this hotel is located in a very peaceful area without much traffic or lack of space. You can find plenty of local restaurants for really decent price.
Overall the staff was very nice and the food was pretty good, the rooms were clean and and well maintained. To top it all, this hotel is fairly cheap so if you are on a budget I would definitely recommend it, I will definitely stay there again if I will visit Beijing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SimK19 Simple hotel, nice rooms, good service
This hotel is very simple. The breakfast is simple, the gym and pool is simple but the price is low, so it's a good value for money.
You can't expect an upgrade, as they don't really have a variety of rooms.
I stayed here couple of times, but I have the feeling that the cleaning quality is not as good as before. Some of the rooms have dirty carpets and the bath facilities should be cleaned better.
The tv function of the gym didn't work last time and I had to fix it myself.
The location is very far from the airport, nightlife (Sanlitun, Guomao, etc.)
Wifi access could be better.
SPG platinium member treatment could be better.
Overall experience is still good as the price is very competitive, the media entertainment is very good and the staff is very friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JimmyK888 Little less than satisfactory
It's October in Beijing and the heater is not working.
Guess I'm going to get a cold this stay which is my second stay in this hotel. First time was better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Becktoria Not for Tourists
We selected this hotel because it was a good deal, but I failed to check on the location. If you are going to Beijing as a tourist, this isn't the hotel for you. By taxi it can take an hour to get into the heart of the city. The subway is a one mile walk to the hotel, which is fine, except that it can be so polluted there, you don't want to breathe the air. The hotel didn't have the usual concierge desk that larger hotels have to help with tourist activities or even help finding a local laundry place. Also the English of the waitstaff was less than I expected for an American hotel chain.
It did fit the Cheap Chic bill. Fun bar and pool table on the ground floor. Room was large and minimal. But the housekeeping was also minimal, they changed the sheets and made the bed, but didn't bother to clear the dirty dishes.
Good deal if you have work nearby, but too out of the way for a tourist trip.
