-Vic's was also really cool, but that was a 3a thing
-then, we started going to Huxley's
-after Goalei and Huxley broke up, we went to Gaolei's places
-Hooters arrived on the scene, and Gaolei's waitresses jumped ship
-Shanghai wasn't nearly as cool, but it caught up with Beijing rapidly
-the Westin brunch was effectively Y175 pp, including free flow
-Face
-Crocus
-Goga
-all of Fuxing Park

Now, both are kind of stale cities.
So Beijing clubbing > Shanghai clubbing in your experience? Ive been to Mix and Element in Beijing but didnt think it was anything special. I thought Fusion and Myst were pretty whack during that era of Shanghai. However, I loved ASL a lot. Sad to see it go.

Ironically, I ended my first night at ASL in the EDITION lol.

I'm way too old for clubbing, but Beijing in its prime really was #1. HK and SH didn't have the same energy.


Beijing was awarded the 2008 Olympics in 2001. Things were nuts after that. Now, I guess we're reduced to stale hotel stays.

Haha, you'll probably bump into me from time to time as my daughter and I frequents the Shed (she's a big sports fan).

Trying to decide between the St. Regis, Ren WFJ, Westin FS, and two JWs for my three-day trip in Oct. Only stayed the Westin once during the 08 Olympic and haven't been to Beijing for over a decade. Mainly focused on the room quality and breakfast offerings. Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

JWs, Westin and Ren should all have similar breakfast quality - which is ten times better than any Marriott lounge/club offering in US.
Never stayed at St. Regis, which is a bit outdated from i heard, but i'd expect great breakfast too.
I'd focus on location for your convenience, traffic there sucks big time.

Wanted to ask the collective group how Bonvoy in China handle requests for non-smoking rooms.

I noticed that booking through Bonvoy, the rooms themselves do not show smoking/non-smoking options, versus booking through OTAs where they have listings specifying smoking/non-smoking per room type.
Does Bonvoy just rely on our account preference settings?

I believe so. At most properties, your preference for a non smoking room is supposed to be guaranteed. In practice, Im sure thats not always the case.

Is it guaranteed?

The only reference I could find regarding smoking/non-smoking preference is the Plat+ room type guarantee, and even there, it says that smoking/non-smoking is honored based on availability.

Seems odd to me that Bonvoy doesn't have the option for explicitly booking a "non-smoking" room type, compared to some OTAs...

Long time lurker here.

I'm looking to use a 35K cert in Beijing around early August. Marriott web shows that Renaissance Wangfujing is more expansive than RC, StR etc. I know cash fare does not translate into better product, is there a particular reason for a premium brand to charge more than luxury brands in the same city? Which hotel would you recommend for a 35K cert?

Most likely some prefer the Renaissance location for tourist stuff as wangfujing is a great walking area and close to Tiananmen and the Forbidden City. The RC finance street is a little out of the way but a nice hotel. I typically stay at STR even though it is old and falling apart. The breakfast is still great and I usually get suites which are old, falling apart but huge. And the Butler staff friendly. I prefer the str location but that's probably just nostalgia from my trips on the area over last 25 yrs. It's an old old hotel.

I'd choose In bj based on where you want to go as travel can be bad.

There are two RCs in Beijing, Financial Street and China Central Place. I would not choose the former under any circumstances. The latter, on the other hand, has locational merits because it's just outside 3rd Ring in Chaoyang. The area is less touristy than Wangfujing, but you only need one day to do Tiananmen + Beihai. There is also a JW Marriott at China Central Place, and the Capital Ren is in Shuangjing (I hear that its quality has declined quite a bit, though).

1 day in Beijing

Has the Courtyard Northeast closed? I see it on Google maps, but I do not see it on the Bonvoy website or the app.
