Aman at Summer Palace is located just steps from the East Gate of the Summer Palace in Beijing. You won’t be staying in a typical hotel room at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Beijing hotel, but instead you’ll be in a series of pavilions that are more than a century old. The beautiful grounds and scenic courtyards of the resort are only 9 miles northwest of Beijing’s city center, which is an approximately 30- to 45-minute drive. While visiting the world’s oldest city, you’ll want to see sites like the Great Wall, the Temple of Heaven and the famed narrow streets, which are all close to the resort. On the other hand, you’ll also be close to Beijing’s restaurants, art galleries and opera.
