    The W Beijing Chang'an is Starwood's newest hotel in Beijing, as it just opened in late 2014. For my first of three trips to Beijing this month, I figured I'd check it out. The W Beijing is a Category 5 SPG property, making a free night redemption 16,000 Starpoints or 6,000 Starpoints plus $110USD through Cash & Points (keep in mind Cash & Points is capacity controlled). That being said, the paid rate was ~$220USD, so in this case it seemed like the better value. That's because I value Starpoints at ~2.2 cents each, so I wouldn't come out ahead through either of those points redemptions. The ride from Beijing Capital Airport to the W Hotel took about 45 minutes and cost 100CNY, which wasn't half bad. The hotel has a striking exterior, at least in comparison to the rest of the buildings in the immediate area. The post Review: W Hotel Beijing Chang’an appeared first on One Mile at a Time.
