Beijing is going to be on par w/ SLC and Sochi there IMO.

 

(For all the issues w/ Sochi their figure skating / short track venue and their primary ice hockey venue were gorgeous)

I guess these things will start to look better once it's filled with snow, the grandstands are in place, all the Olympic decoration is done, there are people, and so on. Right now - or at least on the photos - of course most still look like giant, half-finished building projects, but surely that'll get better :p
