The Citic hotel was excellent. Located near the Beijing Airport, it fit all of our needs for a one night stay. Clean, modern, and a shuttle service were it's strong points. The shuttle schedule to the airport was changed recently so the web site info may be out of date. It did run on time, and on the new schedule. It also offers limited shuttle service into the city. Check with the information booth for directions to the pick up point. Located on the bottom level of Terminal 3, across the street from door number 5. Rooms were nice and clean and up to Western standards. The only drawback (like most hotels in China) is that the Air conditioning is off, and only comes on when the room temp exceeds 26 degrees Celsius (79 degrees Fahrenheit.
After 4 weeks in the west of the country where the hotels were ok, but always a bit grubby, very smoky, and nothing ever worked properly, it was a refreshing change to find a clean comfortable place where the water was hot, the electrics worked, the room was clean and the staff helpful.

I misbooked for the wrong date, and they were able to accomodate me anyway. The front desk speaks English well, and the rides to and from the airport were easy and comfortable. Great place to stay if you are just in Beijing for a layover.
