Marriott sure has a weak portfolio in Beijing vs Shanghai, especially on the east side. Beijing could use brand new W (no refurbished please), an EDITION and several Marriotts/Sheraton/Westins/Courtyards/Four Points, and maybe even an Autograph Collection (if Singapore can have 2, why can't Beijing have one).

I disagree that Marriott's Beijing portfolio is weak, especially if the point of reference is Shanghai (lots of hotels, but few are great, and many are in the middle of nowhere). In Beijing, they address both Chaoyang and Dongcheng nicely: e.g. St Regis, Westin, Bvlgari, NE, JW, RC, Cap Ren, Wangfujing Ren. There is limited space for new builds inside of NE Fourth Ring, so developers kind of have to play the ball as it lies (e.g. Jingguang to Rosewood transformation).

Actually, Sanya is better than both with brand alternatives with Marriott.

I just checked in to the Beijing Marriott Hotel Northeast. Visiting my in-laws and this was the closest option. It was supposed to be a 11-day stay, but I will be checking out tomorrow.

Ahead of checking in today I messaged in the app checking if any upgrade would be possible and they "upgraded" me from a "1 King, High Floor, Skyline view" to "1 King, High Floor, Skyline view, Executive lounge access". I asked in the app and they said the only difference was a higher floor. Hardly an upgrade. At check-in I asked again and this was the best room they could offer. We had a few other questions at check-in and the receptionist was just unhelpful. The hotel is dated and rundown. The place smells moldy. The pool is nice, but the steam room and sauna on the men’s side is out of order, and the steam room on the women’s side is out of order. The general upkeep of this place seems to have been neglected for years.

I made a reservation at the Westin nearby starting tomorrow, same price, and they were able to confirm a suite upgrade for my entire stay.

I have to agree with the posts above about the lack of choice, especially up here in the northeast. The only options are this dump, the Westin, or Bvlgari (and I don't think that should be counted given the lack of benefits and earnings).

The Westin is definitely nicer than NE, though I prefer the fitness facilities at the latter. The Great Wall Sheraton might be old, but Y600/night makes it okay in my book.

Is GW Sheraton the one that had the 天上人间 of yore? Real blast from the past. Was it never renovated? Were any of the old Starwood properties in Beijing ever redone?

The club was gone before the 2008 Olympics.

St Regis looks a bit outdated. Marriott NE and Sheraton Dongcheng aren't close to subway stations. If the JW and RC were on the 3rd Ring road and Cap Ren were a bit more north, it would be ideal in my eyes. I ended up booking the Westin for my next trip.

Is the Great Wall still a Sheraton? Its not bookable via the Bonvoy app and their website makes no mention of being a Bonvoy member

I remember the Sheraton Dongcheng when it first opened about 10 years ago. Lovely modern hotel. Cantonese restaurant was great on weekends - 99 RMB all you can eat a la carte yum cha.

300 meters, in the case of Dongcheng, isn't so far.

No, its no longer a Bonvoy property. The Westin is less than a mile away and a much better alternative anyhow.

I always enjoyed the Marriott NE and found it good value for money plus close enough to PEK to get there in half an hour.
