Well, most of the daytime is hot and the temperature could over 30C at noon. But, it may be accompanied with cool breeze. The night should be cloudy and cool for sleep, sometime there is rainfall~ Please note that the weather of this month in North China is changeful that it is sunny and hot at daytime but plenty of water at night or the next day.

Yes, Wang Fu Jing Street is the busiest shopping street in Beijing, if you want to go shopping, don't miss this street. There are many food streets in Beijing, here I list some for you: Wangfujing Food Street, a good place to enjoy food after shopping in Wangfujing Street. It is located to the south of Haoyou Shijie Shopping Mall in Wang Fu Jing Street. Or you can go to Hou Hai (Back Sea)Snack Street, the food there is cheaper and delicious. Or you can go to Ox Street where there are moslem food. Good trip~

I and few other people are visiting Beijing this weekend on 18th September. We have been booked in the Wanfujing hotel. Sorry i dont know the name properly but it is near to the subway station of same name. I have heard there is a special train to come from airport to this place ? Any information on this. Also additional info like fares and timings will be appreciated. Also can you point out any website(s) for related info ?

You can take Capital Airport Shuttle Bus Line 2 and get off at Dongzhimen, take subway line 2 and get off at Jianguomen, and take subway line 1 at Jianguomen to Wangfujing. The whole fare costs about 20 yuan. There is no direct train from airport to wangfujing as far as I know.
