China World Summit Wing, Beijing offers you plenty of amenities, but we think these are this towering hotel’s best:
1. The in-room extras. You’ll find so much more than just a mini-bar and safe in your room at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. Even standard guest rooms come equipped with a Nespresso pod espresso maker and electric kettle along with a selection of teas and instant coffee, while desks come stocked with tape, scissors, a stapler, a box cutter, paper clips, a ruler and highlighter. A sewing kit and shoe shining equipment are also provided in your room along with reading material like Lost Horizon or Bloomberg BusinessWeek, while bathrooms feature dental and shaving kits, bath salts, nail files, loofahs and even hair bands for your convenience.
2. The gym and pool complex. Boasting a 75-foot indoor infinity pool, a heated vitality pool, herbal steam room, laconium and a spacious, top-of-the line gym with all the Life Fitness cardio and strength training equipment you’d need, you’ll actually want to work out while away from home.
3. Grill 79. Adam Tihany designed this eatery, which is the tallest restaurant in Beijing. It’s a gorgeous space with stunning views (and, occasionally, prices) to match.
4. Fook Lam Moon. Hong Kong’s celebrated Cantonese restaurant has a branch located on the fourth floor of the hotel, and dishes up delicious Chinese cuisine including its signature crispy chicken along with more unique offerings like abalone and bird’s nest. The restaurant also specializes in shark fin, though for sustainability reasons, we urge you not to eat it.
5. The Resident’s Lounge. The luxury hotel’s other lobby, located on the 64th floor, is a clubby, tranquil respite from the bustle of the city. Here you can curl up with a copy of China Daily and relax in a leather club chair, or admire the Beijing views from one of the standing telescopes. You can even help yourself to sandwiches and fresh apples, while the accommodating staff will gladly pour you a cup of coffee or tea. It’s just what you need after spending an afternoon haggling over handbags in the nearby Silk Street Market.
