Concierge.com's insider take:

Just a ten-minute cab ride from the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square, the Peninsula also happens to be smack-dab in the shopper's paradise of Wangfujing. The hotel has its own luxury-brand mall, and the giant Oriental Plaza is also nearby, enabling guests to max out their credit cards with relatively little effort. The lobby, filled with Chinese antiques and a gurgling waterfall, is pretty impressive; the 525 posh guest rooms don't disappoint, either. All have streamlined, plush furnishings with subtle Chinese details (dark wood, silky bolster pillows, jade plants), 42-inch plasma TVs, "silent" fax machines, high-speed Internet access, Davi bathroom goodies, and Braille door numbers. A couple of noteworthy pre-Olympic upgrades include a new Peninsula Spa by ESPA and two customized Rolls-Royce Phantoms.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
Although the exterior celebrates traditional Chinese architecture, this hotel near Tiananmen Square has modern interiors and "an impressive three-story lobby." "Luxurious suites" have 42-inch flat-screen TVs and a bedside console to control the lights and temperature. Huang Ting, constructed using original bricks from centuries-old hutong houses and beams from a mansion in Suzhou, serves local specialties.
