China’s at the forefront of technology, so it should come as no surprise that you’ll find ample in-room technology at China World Summit Wing, Beijing. A Samsung flat-screen television and DVD player are flush against the wall, and the TV swivels so that you can enjoy it from both your bed and the sitting area. A JBL iPod docking station, meanwhile, allows you to play your own tunes, and a full A/V hookup is available adjacent to the desk. You’ll also have free, fast Wi-Fi in your room, though the crowning jewel of the hotel’s in-room technology is surely the in-mirror, 15” LCD television in the bathroom. While in most hotels you can see the outline of the screen in the mirror, at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, the television blends seamlessly into the glass pane. In fact, we wouldn’t have even noticed it at all, except for the remote control next to the sink. Draw a bath in the extra deep soaking tub, toss in a packet of bath salts, pour yourself a cup of tea (or a whiskey — you are on vacation), and then enjoy some HBO or AXN as you bathe.
