Isn't this temple used as a hotel? How do you rate the changes of the original structure caused by the modern use?

Yes it's now part of the Beijing King-Talent Hotel, which was built by a real estate company called 兴隆置业 in 2008. Looks like the boss of this company is a layman Buddhist and uses the completely rebuilt monastery partly as a restaurant/tea-house and partly his private club.
