    Loong Palace Hotel & Resort

    by

    Crowne Plaza North Beijing changed management and became Loong Palace Hotel & Resort in July 2005.
    It is a low priced five star hotel located in Changping's Huilongguan residential district north of Beijing's downtown center. The location is not ideal for tourists but because this hotel is located near the high tech area of Zhongguancun it is often used for international conferences and visiting scientific delegations.
    It remains under western management and you will likely see the foreign general manager greeting international guests in the lobby. I also met the amicable Director of Rooms Division, Mr. Nisar Ahmed, while waiting for the hotel shuttle.
    The service at this hotel is excellent and the staff is well trained. The facilities are exactly what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
    There is a contracted shuttle service to the nearest subway stations (and further downtown) for a small fee but you are on your own for the return trip to the hotel.
    On weekends there is a delicious dim sum lunch buffet (11:30-14:30) inside the hotel at the fancy Dragon Court Chinese Restaurant for only 98 yuan. The price includes one free bowl of shark's fin soup!

    Unique Quality: I was very pleased with my accomodations. The air conditioning is as cool as you like and can be felt throughout the spacious room. Next to the couch is small table with several current magazines in both English and Chinese.
    The television has ESPN, CNN, HBO, Cinemax, and NHK as well as CCTV-9 so you can watch Sugarpuff's show at 10:30. (Rediscovering China). The TV also has a free Tetrus style video game that retains the highest score. (Can you beat mine? 6200!)
    The bathroom has a very nice bathtub and separate shower facility. Amenities include two complimentary bottles of spring water which are replenished each day of your stay.
    You'll appreciate the free water because the closest store is a long walk away.
    The highlight of my stay was the complimentary daily breakfast buffet in the Italian Bistro Cafe. A splendid array of Chinese dim sum, fresh melons, Western breads and pastries, as well as French toast, Asian noodles, congee and sushi greeted me each morning at 7:00. There's even a fresh juice machine which the waitresses will use to puree your favorite fruits or vegetables. The dining space is well sunlit and there's refreshing Italian instrumental music to get your day off to a wonderfully cosmopolitan start.

    Directions: Near Longze station on Beijing light rail north of Xizhimen, Loong Palace is located very close to Beijing's northwest high-tech Zhongguancun area.

I am traveling to Beijing in a few weeks. Just found out that my hotel has been changed to the following:Loong Palace Hotel Huilongguan Changping District. Any recommendations on this area. Resturants, Nightlife, is it within walking distance of sights?

Thanks

Changping!!!??? It's too far away from the city. It's more close to Badaling Great wall than the city. It's definitely not a good choice, you should complaint to your travel agent or whoever assign you such a place.

This hotel is appropriately named. It is a Loong way from anywhere. It si not within walking distance of anywhere you can walk, let alone anywhere you might want to walk.

It used to be part of the InterContinental/Crowne Plaza chain, but I can guess why it isn't any longer!

If you have absolutely no choice, there is a Metro station nearby but it's on the new line that runs from Beijing Bei round to somewhere on Dongzhimen (?), but even those two points are the best locations for sites (although both are hubs for buses).

If you stay at the Loong, you are going to be spending a Loong time in buses, taxis, trains. The upside is that the queue for the breakfast buffet will be Shoort.
