The Grand Mercure
In Beijing we stayed at the Grand Mercure Hotel. We checked in after returning from the Great Wall.
That first evening, while the others were taking a pedicab tour of a Hutong area and going out to dinner, I stayed in my room, iced my knee and ordered in.
The front desk staff got to know me very well! Whenever I approached they said, "ice?" and I said yes and they had it delivered to my room. Such nice people.
