Renaissance Beijing Wangfujing Hotel, Beijing CHINA

I’m a little sad that I ate so much at the Executive Lounge instead of exploring more of the local restaurants, but it was also nice not to spend so much on food and drinks. I really need to win the lottery so I don’t have to make these lame decisions, lol! πŸ™‚

This sandwich was on the dry side, but it was free so I can complain too much. I liked that you got to choose items from their coffee shop for complimentary breakfast items.

Again, the Renaissance had a great variety for afternoon snacks as well. Nothing was spectacular though, and actually everything was on the dry side. I did like the fried dumplings because they were prepared to order.

Even the pastries and fruit were better at the Renaissance compared to Hilton properties. Maybe I should really consider switching loyalty programs…

I liked that they had miso soup available for breakfast. I can eat anything in the morning and don’t confine myself to traditional American breakfast fare. I love miso soup so it was a nice treat in the morning.

I feel like I’ve been eating constantly during this trip, so when the free snack came around at the hotel I really wasn’t that hungry. But I never run from a challenge so I decided to try a few things. The ribs were decent as was the feta salad. The almond chicken was gross though.

I enjoyed the variety of breakfast pastries available at the Executive Lounge. They had enough to keep me interested each morning. They still weren’t going to win any awards with this “usually” dry pastries, but they were better than your typical bread and muffins.
