313 Rooms / 66 Suites

Opened in late 2012, Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is the newest of the high-end hotels to dot the capital’s embassy district, a part of town most appealing to corporate travelers. Accordingly, luxury here is subtle and business-like, such as the hotel’s conventional cream-and-coffee-hued public areas. But cross the threshold into the guest area and Four Seasons’ virtues begin to unfold. All the guest room corridors overlook a 20-floor-tall inner atrium, with an astonishing wall of 400 stainless-steel butterflies from Australian artist Jayne Dyer stretching up to the sky.

Wonderment continues into the private quarters. Deluxe rooms come in at 495 square feet, and are elegantly attired and furnished with state-of-the-art technology (make use of the Bose speakers that are mounted on the ceiling), bathtubs with city views and clever architecture that seems to maximize living space. Dining is one of the hotel’s strong suits; its signature restaurants, Mio and Cai Yi Xuan, bear the ostentatious design stamp of Japanese studio Spin, and take elegant spins on Italian and Chinese cuisine, respectively. The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is one of the most impressive in town, with 11 suites and a book-sized menu of wellness treatments. It even has its own restaurant, Tea Garden, serving high-grade Chinese teas gong-fu style, paired with dainty imperial Chinese snacks.
