The guest rooms at the newly opened Four Seasons Hotel Beijing are extremely spacious and luxurious, with a distinctive design style that blends modern furnishings with traditional Chinese motifs. Dark wooden flooring at the entry foyer matches the carved wooden double doors leading to the huge closet and enormous bathroom. A thick ribbed beige carpet is used for most of the bedroom, while the rest of the furnishings are finished in taupe, velvety maroon and dark blue tones. A signature plush bed faces a 40-inch LED television, while amenities like DVD player, espresso machine, extensive mini bar and universal outlets by the desk and nightstands are requisite. The glass-top desk is large and accompanied by an executive leather desk chair, and a wide armchair and ottoman provide a pleasant spot to sit by the windows. Chinese touches include the lacquered lamp base and the repurposed wooden stool topped with gray marble to make a side table. Ceramic vases and bowls are displayed on shelves in the bedroom and bathroom among books about Chinese handicrafts, while framed prints of calligraphy collages decorate the walls.
Undoubtedly, the single standout feature of each of Four Seasons Hotel Beijing’s 313 guest rooms and suites is the generously sized bathtub with a view. There’s something wonderful about soaking while, at the same time, gazing out at the city. The vista is far from the room’s only luxury, though. Even the most basic room type — in this case, the 495-square-foot deluxe — exudes a certain polish and comes with the aforementioned tub and separate shower room, espresso machine, ceiling-mounted Bose speaker system and welcome amenity of fruit. If you care to splurge, the 635-square-foot Four Seasons rooms include a sofa seating area and walk-in closet. The Chairman suites (1,227 square feet) are a good choice for families because they come with the option of connecting quarters as well as feature a small kitchen with its own separate door for discreet room service.
