Not only are the rooms spacious and luxurious at China World Summit Wing, Beijing, they’re filled with amenities that will enhance your stay in Beijing. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a welcome gift of fresh fruit and almond cookies, especially lovely after the 40-minute taxi ride in from the airport. In addition to a standard mini-bar and a selection of complimentary bottled water (you don’t want to drink from the tap here), you’ll find a Nespresso pod espresso maker and electric kettle along with a selection of teas and instant coffee. Catering to business travelers, you’ll also find a range of office supplies in the desk drawer that far exceed the standard stationery and postcard set you’ll encounter at most hotels (though the postcards of the Adam Tihany-designed Grill 79 restaurant are pretty swank). Here you’ll also discover tape, scissors, a stapler, a box cutter, paper clips, a ruler and highlighter. Need any fashion upkeep necessities? No problem, thanks to a sewing kit and shoe-shining equipment, provided in your room. Want to keep up on your reading (or brush up on your Chinese), flip through magazines and books like Noblesse, Lost Horizon, Bloomberg BusinessWeek China and, of course, the copy of The Global Times delivered each afternoon to your room. Along with the iPod docking station and DVD player, you might not even need to leave your room during your stay at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel.
